Cintas and Anthony Melchiorri Unveil $25,000 Hotel Makeover at 2013 International Hotel/Motel + Restaurant Show Wyndham Boca Raton wins $25,000 worth of products and services from Cintas, including new housekeeping uniforms and floor mats Business Wire CHICAGO -- November 21, 2013 At the International Hotel/Motel + Restaurant Show (IHMRS), Cintas Corporation (NASDAQ: CTAS) and Anthony Melchiorri, a hospitality expert and television personality, revealed the results of their $25,000 Hotel Makeover at the Wyndham Boca Raton. Designed to further enhance the hotel’s operations and guest satisfaction, highlights from the makeover were unveiled during a 20-minute presentation attended by media, tradeshow attendees and Wyndham executives. “We are thrilled with the $25,000 makeover from Anthony and Cintas,” said Ken Kaylor, general manager, Wyndham Boca Raton. “With help from the experts, our guestrooms look, feel and smell outstanding. At a time when online ratings are critical to success, we recognize the importance of focusing on initiatives that support cleanliness, safety and guest satisfaction.” Selected as the winner in October, the Wyndham Boca Raton, located in Boca Raton, Fla., decided to use the $25,000 in multiple ways. Using Cintas’ deep cleaning service for air conditioning units, the hotel reduced energy consumption and ensured that the units cool faster, reduce humidity and prevent foul odors in guestrooms. To take their cleanliness program a step further, the hotel also used Cintas’ Tile and Carpet Deep Cleaning Service throughout all guest rooms and public areas, including its hallways and conference spaces. “As hoteliers, it’s our job to make guests feel as if no one has been in their hotel room before,” said Melchiorri, a seasoned professional with more than 20 years of experience serving the hospitality industry. “Nothing lowers guest satisfaction scores faster than a smelly room, which typically stems from dirty carpeting or dirty HVAC units. The Wyndham Boca Raton covered both bases by getting its carpet and HVAC units cleaned.” For the next step in the $25,000 makeover, the Wyndham Boca Raton tasked Cintas with designing a new custom mat that perfectly fits its main entrance. The new mat welcomes guests into the hotel and helps maintain cleanliness by capturing contaminants before they are tracked through the hotel. To complete the makeover, Cintas delivered new uniforms to the property’s housekeeping department featuring breathable, comfortable and functional fabrics. “Our people are the most important part of our operation,” said Kaylor. “To help show our gratitude, we wanted to invest in our housekeepers, who work really hard and deserve to look and feel great too. The new uniforms help accomplish this, and it’s been a remarkable change for them as well.” “It was a pleasure partnering with Anthony and awarding the $25,000 makeover to the Wyndham Boca Raton,” said Todd McKeown, Vice President Global Hospitality and Gaming, Cintas. “Ken’s decision to invest the winnings in a suite of products and services that will improve guest satisfaction, hotel operations, and employee morale makes good business sense.” To view a video of the $25,000 Hotel Makeover, please visit http://youtu.be/Uk5tYpkdgRQ.
