So you’ve acquired your first delivery of hotel towels. But now what? As your guests begin checking in, you want to make sure that your rooms look as pristine as you can. It’s one thing to simply have the towel and it’s another thing to go the extra mile to create an elegant display.
Luckily, hotel towel folding can be both easy and aesthetically pleasing if you have the right tools under your belt. And the only tools you need is to know are the right hotel towel folding techniques.
Here, we’ll break down the steps for the 3 types of hotel towel folding your business should be using – the trifold for stacked towels, the pocket and fan hanging towel, and the spa towel roll if you offer spa services at your resort.
This fold is important when providing extra towels to your guests. The simple, yet organized display won’t detract from the overall appearance of your hotel room.
Here’s what you need to do:
Step 1. Fold your towel lengthwise into thirds, starting by folding the bottom corner of the towel over to the middle.
Step 2. Fold the top third of the towel over the bottom section you folded.
Step 3. Fold crosswise by folding the towel in half. Repeat this step again to create a more condensed size.
This classic fold may look intimidating for your first try, but is well worth the practice. It adds that extra element to your hotel bathrooms that will distinguish you from a subpar hotel as an establishment of a higher caliber.
Follow these steps and soon you’ll be a master of the fold:
Step 1. Fold the towel from the bottom corner over, similar to how you would when beginning a trifold except this time only fold about ¼-⅓ of the way.
Step 3. Turn the towel over, making sure the first fold stays straight, and fold the towel crosswise by folding the two sides toward each other.
Step 4. Pull open the pocket on the bottom layer and tuck the outer edge of the top layer into the pocket, closing that bottom layer on top. This forms your towel’s completed pocket.
Step 5. The final step for the pocket towel is to fold it in half over the rod you plan to hang it from. Now, let’s move onto your fanned washcloth.
Step 6. Fold the washcloth accordion-style by starting on one end, folding the washcloth about an inch in, flipping it over, folding an inch in, flipping it over, and continuing until you can no longer fold.
Step 7. Then fold the accordion washcloth in half.
Step 8. Gently tuck the fanned washcloth into the pocket of your folded hand towel and voila.
If you offer other services at your hotel aside from a room to stay in, such as massages and facials, then you probably know that you need towels for more than just your rooms. Spas are held in a high regard, which means the expectations for your spa are set fairly high. The simple things like how you display your spa towels make a world of a difference in an individual’s spa experience. This spa towel roll is a quick and easy fold that still provides that elegance guests look for in spas.
Here’s how to roll your towels:
Step 1. First follow the steps for a simple trifold.
Step 2. Then hold the towel firmly as you tightly and evenly roll it up.
Step 3. When placing your towel in its basket, make sure that the exposed seam is down, both for aesthetic purposes and to make sure the towel does not unroll.
It’s not always just in the hotel towel folding technique though. The towels themselves of course matter too. That’s why you should make sure that you are only getting your towels from a high-quality supplier that understands the ins and outs of your industry. Not to mention a supplier who will take care of the laundering for you as well, so you can focus less on your towels and more on your services.
