Hotel marketing and tricks

It’s no secret that hotels need promotions and marketing to get their brand to market and gain new clientele. However, there are some hotels that go beyond the usual kind of hype that most people would expect. With that said, let’s take a look at some examples of hotels that have made various efforts to stand out from the crowd, all in the name of good old fashioned marketing to attract people.

When it comes to tricks, a city always comes to mind. That’s Las Vegas, also known as Sin City because of all the gambling and other things that go on around The Strip and its surroundings. The hotels in this city, from the grandiose with their own high-end casinos to the smallest motels, have tricks that seek to attract the mesmerized visitor.

Caesar’s Palace perhaps best represents the sophisticated hotels of Las Vegas, with its Roman-themed architecture and landscapes and the immense main water fountain. The luxury hotel also has a Colosseum-inspired entertainment venue, among other secondary venues. Aptly named The Colosseum at Caesar’s Palace, it has hosted the likes of Celine Dion, Bette Midler, Elton John, and Cher.

On the opposite shore, there’s a 198-room establishment called the Donovan House, which has some kind of CIA theme. After all, the hotel is named after Major General William Joseph “Wild Bill” Donovan, who headed the United States Office of Strategic Services. The OSS preceded the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), so Donovan is recognized as the father of the CIA. The Donovan House theme includes wristwatch communicators for hotel staff and cocoon-type spiral showers, hinting at what secret agents likely bathe in.

Another hotel marketing gimmick is the cheese-covered hotel room at the Washington Jefferson Hotel in New York City. To make a tourist attraction, the hotel manager hired an artist to completely embellish the room with 1,000 pounds of pure melted cheese. Yes, and it is cheese that comes directly from The Swiss Cheese Foundation. That is a cheesy room.

We crossed over to Europe for a terrifying and bizarre stunt: the vampire’s room at the Propeller Island Hotel in Berlin, Germany. As you can guess from the name, this room is probably best rented by the likes of Lestat or Edward Cullen. The room has a couple of coffins for people to sleep in, and there are even crosses engraved on the casket covers! If you don’t like that, the hotel also the Cage Room, where you can enjoy a bit of r & r in the comfort of two raised cages.

Around the world, there are many different hotels that offer different types of attractions and tips. With so many hotels spread across the globe, it is imperative to be able to create something unique to attract guests. It works for the hotel and it works for guests who receive something extraordinary. Next time you book a hotel, see if you can find a themed one or one with uniquely designed rooms, so that you have a pretty refreshing hotel experience.
