The UK hotel Bermondsey Square is trying to connect with the rental property options out there like AirBnb, and it’s doing so by offering up its boutique services to people who are staying within a mile of the hotel.
Basically someone could be staying in a rented property a few blocks away but head over to the hotel if they need anything, maintenence or otherwise. The service will be called SquAIR, and guarantees a 30 minute call out for anything a guest might need.
All communication will be done via a mobile app, which will also allow guests to track their stay and keep track of important information. The drop off and pick ups of the rental keys will be done at the hotel, and they have a trustworthy spot to stash their luggage if needed.
The hotel released a statement about the new feature.
“Offering a safe and secure environment, the hotel surroundings offer a comfortable surrounding for those guests who may be hesitant about booking an Airbnb style property or new rental apartment. Guests will also be able to leave their luggage at the hotel on check out of their apartment.”
