Reception

Floors

Impressions count here - it is the area that you will step into and base your view of the rest of the hotel on. With seating areas a likely feature, it acts as a meeting space, the start of a well-earned break, the end of a tiring workday, and an office for reception staff. Altro Lavencia LVT provides a durable, attractive flooring solution that combines aesthetic appeal with functionality, making it ideal for these areas.

Hotel guests want the experience they are paying for; building maintenance is not a good look. If a hotel has to close to refurbish its reception space, every hour of downtime has a cost attached. Altro Wood adhesive-free can halve installation time, reducing disruption, and there are no adhesive-associated odors that may disturb guests and staff. Its variety of wood-look shades contribute to achieving a high-end look. It has the added benefit of slip resistance, protecting guests from the hazards of walked-in rain.

Walls

When it comes to deciding what you think of a hotel as you step into the entrance, the eye will naturally go to the walls. Along with the floor, the furniture and the reception desk, they speak volumes about the place you are choosing to stay, meet or dine.
 
Altro Whiterock Digiclad enables a hotel to put its own stamp on this key space. Choose from designs or photography to echo your theme. As needed for this busy area, Altro Whiterock Digiclad is durable and scratch-resistant, ensuring the walls look good long-term.
 

Corridors to reception/lift/general circulation/bars/dining

Floors

Every inch of the communal spaces in a hotel contributes to the overall perception of it, from the colors and textures chosen to how clean it appears. A tired-looking space can leave a guest feeling they would prefer to be at home rather than there, and resent paying for the privilege. This can be a challenge for well-trodden corridors seating areas. Altro Symphonia smooth flooring as well as Altro Lavencia LVT are both durable options with ample design options available. For a wood-look floor with the added benefit of reducing downtime, eliminating adhesive odors and slip resistance, Altro Wood adhesive-free is ideal.
 

Walls

Altro Whiterock wall designs impress, without compromising durability. Natural wood, stone, linen and metal options can be used alone or combined, giving multiple design options. They fit perfectly with our floors and can be used with Altro Whiterock in adjacent areas. As you would expect from Altro Whiterock, the sheets are impact-resistant, impervious and can be wiped clean, making life easier for staff.

Corridors to bedrooms

Floors

Once in the sanctuary of your bedroom, you don’t want constant reminders that other people are staying a stone’s throw from you, especially if you’re sleeping at the time! Unsurprisingly, noise reduction is key here, but that can’t mean a compromise on looks and with cleaning carts a daily feature, the chosen floor has to be able to cope with heavy, wheeled traffic.

Altro Ensemble reduces impact sound by 15dB, which limits noise from footsteps and other traffic in the space, plus in the room below – important if your hotel has more than two floors. This durable floor is available in four sizes that can be arranged, or cut, into patterns, and block colour plus wood-look options, it’s easy to replicate the look of elsewhere in the hotel, or something entirely new.

As this corridor is how bedrooms are accessed, downtime will be an issue. Altro Wood adhesive-free can halve installation time – it’s possible to lay, weld and walk on the same day. Ideal for a working hotel, a faster installation is also ideal for total refurbishment or new builds, where the bedroom corridors are one of the largest installation spaces.  If the hotel is remaining open, no adhesive means no associated odours will penetrate bedrooms and there’s no need for costly ventilation equipment.

Walls

Of course the focus here is getting to the bedroom or leaving it. A guest may not consciously take in the corridor décor – unless it’s tired or dirty - and that’s where the design and materials used are key. On the flip side, the design could demand attention to fit in with a theme, or to help guests recognise where their room is.

Altro Whiterock wall designs work perfectly in this calm, quiet space. Natural wood, stone, linen and metal options, the choices can be subtle, striking or both. They can be used alone or combined, giving multiple design options and helping with wayfinding. They fit perfectly with our floors and can be used with Altro Whiterock wall cladding or Altro Fortis to run into adjacent areas. As you would expect from Altro Whiterock, the sheets are impact-resistant, impervious and can be wiped clean, making life easier for staff.

Corridors leading to service areas and laundries / storage areas

Floors

Unsurprisingly, noise reduction is key here, but that cannot mean a compromise on looks. With cleaning carts a daily feature, the chosen floor has to be able to cope with heavy, wheeled traffic.

Altro Reliance 25 offers a high level of slip resistance, reducing the risk to less than one in a million, plus it has good chemical resistance and features Altro Easyclean Technology. At 2.5mm it’s tough enough to cope with rolling loads, standing equipment and dragged bins.

As with any 24-hour operation, access to these areas is important. Altro XpressLay is an adhesive-free floor that can reduce disruption by halving installation time and, as with all Altro adhesive-free floors, can be installed over existing flooring or on fresh concrete. Altro XpressLay was tested with a 2000lb drilling rig with caterpillar tracks: no rucks, no movement, so it easily meets the challenges presented by this space. The world’s first adhesive-free safety floor, it also keeps users’ slip-risk to one in a million.
