Surely when you choose your stay you think of 2 things: rest and comfort. To provide these two elements, hotels start preparations even before opening. And Orient Hotel, opened in 2021 in Galati, studied these unwritten rules or recommended by designers with one goal: the pleasure of the guests.
Today we tell you how hotel rooms sometimes manage to seem more restful like your own bedroom or become better for productivity like the office.
The secrets that make a hotel room more inviting
- The best beds
It is known, rest begins and ends with how sleep does its job. And from this thought begins for hotels the choice of bed size and above all, the perfect size and standard for the mattress.
If you’ve even bought a mattress for your home, you know how much preparation, research, and denial goes into the process. And if the thickness part of the mattress is recommended to be bigger, to feel equally good for any body size and weight, the firmness part and its choice is an art.
Memory mattresses are obviously avoided, so that the bed is just as comfortable for the next guest, but it’s still a whole process of selection and elimination until you find the perfectly balanced option for a peaceful sleep.
”Some luxury hotels contract with different mattress manufacturers to design custom mattresses for their hotels. This usually comes after specially hired testers have already spent some time with the mattress and want to make adjustments to comply with their hotel’s policy.”
At Orient Hotel Galati you rest on the special 40 cm mattresses that make you lose track of time and pain.
DID YOU KNOW: A 2018 survey by mattressadvisor.com found that 81% of guests rated a comfortable bed as the “most important feature” in a room.
2. Special bedding
You must have noticed that hotel bedding is always different from the ones you find at home. Why? Why can’t you find these special beddings commercially?
Cotton is often chosen for the home. Sometimes it is replaced by a satin option or a percale treat. Percale is a cotton cloth, also called combed cotton, very thin and smooth. It has a density of 180-300 threads. But hotels are investing in luxury materials, such as linen or Egyptian cotton, and a special shape of the sheets that keeps them always flat, avoiding air trapping underneath.
”Most hotel sheets have a thread count of around 300, and this is true for both linen and cotton sheets. Other hotels, looking to provide even more comfort and breathability, will use 500 thread count, and some even up to 800, although it is quite expensive compared to other comfort options on the market.
At Orient Hotel Galați, both the fine linens and their impeccable cleanliness combine perfectly with the generous beds to make sleeping or lazing around in a welcoming atmosphere a complete experience.
3. The ideal pillows
Pillows complete the hotel experience. And from the countless attempts you make for your own pillows at home, have you ever wondered how a hotel manages to place ideal pillows on beds 98% of the time?
Hotels want a sleeping experience that breathes, is comfortable and simple, which is why they use large down pillows, ideal for those who sleep in all positions. First of all, down pillows are made from the fluffy plumage of a duck and geese. They are more premium and easier to maintain. The down lasts a long time and the cushions are easy to maintain. Microfiber pillows are also added for more comfort and balance, which is why there are plenty of pillows in hotel rooms.
At Orient Hotel Galati, the pillows have been tested from the start and guarantee the complete relaxation experience you expect from a hotel stay. The fact that the hotel is new also means that the pillow, mattress and bedding choices are the most modern according to 2021 studies and techniques.
4. Welcoming light
The hotel experience begins at the entrance. If guests arrive late, the lighting should be warm and welcoming, already helping you feel relaxed. But if guests arrive in the morning, the visual boost comes from plenty of natural light or bright white lighting to help you feel energized and awake.
In the rooms, the light must take into account 3 ideas: restful sleep until whatever time of the morning the guest wants, romantic atmosphere when the couple wants it, or a warm atmosphere for reading and relaxing.
”So, by providing guests with proper lighting for the bathroom, closet, nightstands, and makeup mirror, we can make someone feel more at home. The ability to control the lighting to the desired ambience can help guests unwind in the evening in a relaxing environment. Light is also about mood, not just about visibility, especially in the hotel.”
At Orient Hotel Galati, the large and bright windows provide natural light, protected by curtains when the sun is not welcome in the morning. And for magical evenings, the lights are multiple and of different intensities, from bulbs to numerous chandeliers and room lamps. Moreover, they maintain the same design and define the aesthetics of our hotel, in every space, from the room to the restaurant.
BONUS: The orientation of the rooms, the area and if not, soundproof windows are essential for the ultimate travel experience.
5. Furniture that generously reflects light
And to amplify the feeling of comfort, but also with the help of light, mirrors are decorative objects that must not be missing. They also give a feeling of space, but also allow simple orientation when arranging.
The table with chairs is a plus in the rooms, because it offers the comfort of serving breakfast at the table, or a comfortable work session.
The furniture is what differentiates one hotel from another. Bespoke, style-defining elements that define the atmosphere suggest what the idea was behind the design and that no compromises were made on style or cost.
Quote: “Is the chair the thing you throw your clothes on, or is it a throne that makes you feel like a king or queen? This is the psychology of good design.” – Peter Girgis, luxury hotel designer.
At Orient Hotel Galați you can enjoy rooms with a rich, classic design, in wood with a timeless design, which gives the feeling of affluence and premium comfort. The elements from the headboards of the beds are also transposed into the design of the desk or the mirror. And the overall feel is one of luxury.
BONUS: Handy outlets are among the most appreciated details in hotels by guests.
Final thought: Bathroom and shower pressure
„Shower pressure is a key aspect of our bathroom design,” says Hotel Designer Scarlett Supple. “You definitely don’t want it to be weak, but it shouldn’t be so strong that it sprays all over the place either. We also have a minimum size for a shower – and if this cannot be met we will resize the room accordingly.”
We invite you to relax. We have taken all these steps into account and the hotel near the Danube awaits you for a sensory treat, a restful sleep and a productive few days of remote work.
