Many travellers want to find out everything they can about your hotel before they book. They would want as much information as possible about the holiday experience they will be buying. A well thought out hotel description is a great tool to sell your hotel to potential guests. A detailed property description should position your hotel well and reassure the traveller that you provide a high quality and trustworthy service.
Why is Hotel Description so Important?
Many hoteliers find that they get asked the same questions about their hotel overview, facilities and accommodation descriptions by potential travel bookers as they are unable to find this information online. If this applies to you, you can reduce the number of calls and e-mails by having a detailed hotel description in place both on your website and Online Travel Agencies (OTAs)
Here are the key points we think every Hotel Description should have (with some wide ranging examples), and the order you should follow to achieve desired results:-
Property Overview – This is the first sentence that the travel booker reads. So it needs to “sell” the hotel and highlight the main reason why they should book. 35 to 50 words are advised. http://www.carnoustieresorts.com/newsite/home.html#/resort
Description of Accommodation – Describe what is special about the rooms and any unique aspects. Unique selling points of room like views, size and amenities for business traveller or leisure traveller. 35 to 50 words are advised. http://www.sonesta.com/boston/?fa=guestrooms.home
