Height of Hospitality: The Unique Challenges of High-Rise Hotels - High Rise Facilities

highrisefacilities.com [cached]

Doug Aaron, director of engineering for Magnolia Hotel in Houston and president of Hotel Engineering Association, says the Magnolia plans to upgrade all of its guestrooms with new paint and carpet next year, along with bedding packages.
Aaron says plumbing is Magnolia Hotel's biggest challenge. He and his team deal with problems ranging from holes in pipes to plumbing system back-up. "People flush things down toilets that you couldn't imagine. To stay on top of this issue, Magnolia developed its Perfect Room Program (PRP). "As part of this program, we try to get in every room twice a year or more, depending on which suites are occupied most. During those room visits, his team cleans out all drains with a special tool that removes hair and sludge. Aaron says the Magnolia's elevators also require constant attention. These projects will result in savings that can be redirected into more building projects to increase guest satisfaction, says Aaron. The team needs to be excited to be at work every day," says Doug Aaron, director of engineering for Magnolia Hotel in Houston and president of Hotel Engineering Association. "You might have to pay a little more to get good, qualified people, but investing in them means you won't have to worry about them leaving." Once you have qualified staff members, Aaron says it's important to dedicate a few specifically to preventive maintenance. "A lot of properties have engineers who are supposed to be doing maintenance on guestrooms, but they're also being used for room calls and other building projects. You can't do that," emphasizes Aaron. "You need a dedicated person whose job is to maintain guestrooms every single day. The Magnolia consistently has GSI (Guest Satisfaction Index) scores in the 90s, and Aaron is confident that staff dedication to room maintenance is one of the reasons why.
