Alter ego part4: Hotel reseach

In this post going to be displaying secondary research In 5 star hotels. Reference photos, requirements what makes a place a “5 star hotel” and an action plan of what to include in the room for the final piece.

The reason why I have done research into 5 star hotels is because in the final piece, plan to make the top floor to be: modern and luxuries, nothing that seem out of place.

Researched what is seen as required to in each star rating to know the difference and to know what to put in or not to put in the room.
1 star
occasional shared bathroom facilities.
Basci room options.
(uk) at least 5 rooms visible to be let
Normally no bar and Restraunt but there are usually vending machines.
Staff to be there during the day to accept guests.
Open seven days a week

2 star
Basic,
Normally have a phone or TV in room
private en suite bathrooms
A bar or restaurant within the hotel.
Higher maintenance and cleanliness compared to 1star.

3 star
Several different categories of room available in the hotel

At least one restaurant, open to residents and non-residents
At least one permit suite that contains a: bedroom, lounge and bathroom which is always available to rent.

In conclusion,what to include for top floor room:

-After looking through a range of photos, concluded going to add a table/ stool at the end of the bed.
-Not going to add a candy machine in the hallways because that would cheapen the atmosphere.
-Lots of space
-tables
-chairs
-sofa
-lamps
-food
-mini-fridge with pre-loaded food?
