The hospitality industry is one of the biggest in Florida and can be one of the best with the right property investment. However, ensuring your hotel stands above the rest and provides an incredible guest experience can be tricky, especially in competitive areas like Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg.
A good first impression begins with parking maintenance. If you are looking for ways to improve your hotel or resort’s parking and entrance, you may consider adding an access control gate. This type of fence and gate option can help you mitigate parking congestion and enhance hotel security. But, is it right for your property? If any of these circumstances are true, the answer may be yes:
You have a large parking lot or parking garage.
The bigger the parking lot, the more difficult it can be for guests to navigate and your staff to control. By installing an access control gate, you can slow the flow of traffic and prevent non-guests from using your parking lot without permission.
You want to enhance security.
Security is not only important to you but also important to your guests (especially if they’re planning a long stay). An access control gate ensures no unauthorized visitors can easily enter your property, which can help during tourist season or during local events.
You host events frequently.
Events at your hotel, or at sites near your hotel, will cause parking problems no matter what. If you are a recommended hotel for an event nearby, you’ll want to control access to your parking lot to prevent non-guests from taking up space. Or, you can use access control to provide secure, paid parking for nearby events.
You are near a major tourist destination.
Tourist destinations are ideal locations for hotels but are much more difficult to manage because of the influx of traffic and the potential for misconduct during busy times of the year. If your property is located in one of the busy parts of Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, or surrounding South Florida hotspots, you want to have tight access control to ensure your guests have the best experience possible.
