CINCINNATI — Cintas Corporation
recently released a Wardrobe Room White Paper detailing the impact of having onsite uniform room solutions at hospitality properties, according to a press release
According to the release, the White Paper identifies potential issues hoteliers might experience with their current wardrobe room and how onsite solutions improve wardrobe room operations, enabling hoteliers to better protect their uniform investment.
To conduct its research, Cintas examined three different sized hotels — the 590-room Hotel Monteleone
, the 735-room Westin Kierland
and the 2,004-room Marriott Orlando World Center
— and reviewed their operations prior to the implementation of an onsite wardrobe room and the results achieved after several years of using Cintas'' onsite wardrobe room solutions, the release stated.
Common issues identified in the Wardrobe Room White Paper include improperly sized rooms, inconsistency in the appearance of garments, lack of inventory control and inadequate oversight, the release noted.
Gretchen McIntyre, senior marketing manager of Cintas, said: "All hoteliers understand the importance appearance plays in a guest''s impression of the property. However, some hoteliers do not understand the significance that wardrobe rooms play in ensuring the integrity of their associates'' appearance. Our research shows that onsite wardrobe room solutions not only improve the appearance of associates, but they also reduce costs and improve staff morale."
