Bedsheets: Quality & Practicality are Key

  • Hospitality
  • by George Courey Inc.

Bedroom comfort and cleanliness are considered top priorities in determining client satisfaction during their hotel stays. 

Your bedsheets should look pristine and new to help ensure clients will book a repeat visit in their home-away-from home. When looking to revamp or to restock your hotel sheets, focus on high-quality, but also practicality. Additionally, if your hotel has in-house laundry, you want to be mindful of giving your staff linens that can be cleaned and maintained with ease.

What do you need to know to make the best linen decisions for your hotel
Your Linen Supply

Be sure to have enough linens in stock: when your hotel is filled at high occupancy, there’s also a higher risk of soiled or torn linens. Make sure you have an adequate stock of extra linens so that your manager isn’t stuck with an emergency on their hands, where there aren’t enough linens to service all the rooms. 

When it comes to revamping your stock, you might be faced with an age-old question: How much should I order? How do I know what products I’m missing? How can I get the best quality of textiles for my hotel, without breaking the bank? 

 Your trusted GCI representatives are here to periodically audit your current stock of textiles and help you with any other textile/linen needs. Our representatives have accumulated a wealth of expertise in this domain and can help you ensure that you never run out of stock, are purchasing products that are aligned with your brand image, and that you constantly meet your guests’ expectations.

Fabric Composition

In terms of fabric durability, poly-cotton blended sheets are the recommended option. They will survive multiple washes over a long period of time. George Courey’s linen collection stocks several poly-cotton blend products due to their numerous attractive qualities, such as: 

  •  Durability - Poly-cotton products have a longer life-cycle due to their increased ability to withstand wear, pressure or damage.
  • Low shrinkage - These sheets have low shrinkage, which means they will still fit after multiple washes.
  • Low ‘wrinkling’ - Your staff will spend a fraction of their time making the sheets look polished, and your clientele will feel pampered. It’s a win-win.
  • Faster drying - When sheets dry faster, they consume less energy. This is a great eco-friendly solution to help increase your laundry efficiency.

Thread Count

The thread count on bed sheets affects the feel, look, longevity and quality of the fabric. Types of weaves range from basic plain weaves, to intricate sateen weaves. George Courey has a wide selection of sheets that can fit your hotel’s image and meet your needs. For example, we have a specialized percale product line – an upscale plain weave with a thread count of 180 or more, known for its durability and crisp feel, this is perfect for making guests feel they’re enveloped in fresh, clean sheets.
