Hotel Safety Tips while traveling

BLOG HOTEL PHOTOBy Michael Bonotto, Security & Safety Director

Security and safety while traveling, both in the United States and abroad, sometimes is not on your packing list but once there becomes apparent. Being prepared on a trip can help alleviate stress, anxiety and help the journey to be more enjoyable.

Before you even leave for your vacation, check the Internet, is the hotel in a safe neighborhood, how is the parking, where is the parking. What’s the area like during the day and at night? If traveling to another country who is picking you up or how are you getting to the hotel. These considerations should be thought of weeks in advance of your trip.  Any credit cards, tickets, passports and other important documents should be copied and left at home in case they are lost. Valuables like jewelry should also be photographed and insured by your home owner’s policy. Make a packing list with check boxes, this list will help you formulate a plan and help you get organized.

Rejuvenation!

In recent months, the Nassau Inn has embarked on a “rejuvenation.” This included a new outdoor patio and upgrades to several blocks of rooms.  While this project is currently underway and will continue throughout April 2011, we wanted to share with you a few of the changes and updates that can be expected!

Our guestrooms will be enhanced with new furniture, flat screen TVs, plush bed linens and remodeled bathrooms.  Additionally, all of our guest elevators are receiving new mechanicals and cab interiors.  

In 2012, the guest rooms  in the Colonial Wing of the Inn will be complete, as will the replacement of the public space carpeting on levels 1 and 2. The Ballroom, Senior Room and Assembly room will be fully renovated with new window treatments, wall coverings, audio and visual upgrades and much more!

We are very excited about the rejuvenation project here at the Nassau Inn and are pleased to share with you updates and progress. As we renovate rooms and meeting space throughout the hotel, I can assure you that the 18th century elegance and charm of the Nassau Inn will not be lost.

As always, we welcome your feedback and hope you will stop in and take a look at the renovation in progress!

Get to Know Your Customer Day

This post was co-written by Jackie Brigante.

In honor of Get to Know Your Customer Day, we went behind the red door in search of insight from our own Nassau Inn guests.

 As members of the sales team, we understand how important it is to know our customers well.  The more we know about them, the better we are able to cater to their specific needs, and as a Hotel; we love learning about our guests.  It’s always interesting to hear what brings people to Princeton, and what they enjoy doing while visiting. 

As part of Get to Know Your Customer Day, which falls on the third Thursday of every quarter, we ventured out of our offices to connect with our guests.  While meandering through the hallways, we came upon Cara and Anne Marie utilizing our Foyer to get some work done.  These two ladies graciously allowed us to gain perspective into their stay at the Nassau Inn.

We would like to send out a big thanks to Anne Marie and Cara for opening up and allowing us to get to know two of our valued guests.  To any of our other customers out there, keep the input coming!
