In this post we’ll explain:

Other elements and features.
We’ll also discuss how hotel awnings can benefit your business and hotel guests and visitors.
Awnings for hotels will enhance your hotel and your guests’ visit. The awnings will welcome visitors to your entrance, shade windows, and shade dining areas. They provide protection for guests and visitors to your tennis, golf, pools, or other resort offerings. Hotel awnings or canopies can advertise your hotel and increase your revenues.
The style of hotel awning you or your client wish to add should complement the style of the building, and serve a function. Awnings come in a wide range of products and can be the solution for enhancing your hotel’s look and improving the outdoor appeal and visitor experience. They are easy to attach to a building’s exterior, can be fixed frame with fabric or metal covers, retractable fabric and frame, sail shape, or freestanding pergola style awnings.
A hotel entrance canopy can give your hotel a new look and make it appear larger and more inviting. It also protects your guests from the elements as they enter your hotel, sets your or your client’s business apart from others, and helps advertise the hotel name brand and its services. Awnings for doors and windows establish the first impression guests see. They can help rejuvenate a building, create a trademark look, and protect from the weather.
Select an awning for your or your client’s hotel that fulfills a purpose, and then select the style that complements the hotel and its function.
The awning size and shape depends on its purpose and what you want to cover. Awnings can cover windows, doorways, or large outdoor areas. If you or your client wish to add hotel canopies to reduce the sun’s glare and heat or to protect from precipitation, custom awnings can be fabricated and installed to meet your needs.
The size of the hotel patio covers is determined by the area you wish to shade or protect from rain or snow. A poolside massage cabana is smaller than an awning that covers a dining area. If the patio is away from the building, a pergola style free-standing awning or retractable shade sail may meet your needs. These are important details in the design of your hotel patio cover.
The size of the hotel canopy is determined by its function.
Hotel canopies are stretched over fixed frames or roll-out supports. They come in a variety of colors, patterns, and fabrics. Matching sides can also be added for more protection too. The hotel name and logo can be custom printed on the fabric to help identify your hotel, attract customers, and to establish branding.
The hotel canopy can be natural or synthetic fabrics, plastics, or metal. Fabrics should be UV treated, waterproof (not water-resistant), and resistant to mold and rot and fire retardant where required. High-quality vinyl or solution-dyed acrylic fabric such as Para Tempotest brand suitable for the climate the hotel is located in is best.
High-quality fabric for a hotel patio cover works best. Make sure it is UV protected, rot and mold resistant, fire retardant and compliments your branding.
Hotel patio awnings create enjoyable areas that will entice guests outdoors and bring them back to visit again. A door or window awning or patio or deck awning is usually fixed in place and always extended to protect guests, visitors, and furniture from the sun, damaging ultraviolet rays and rain. They can be fabric covered or have metal panels, slats, louvers or lattice.
A retractable awning is usually closed when not in use (thus allowing the fabric to last longer than fixed awning fabric) but can extend using folding arms. In high winds or when not needed the awning can be retracted. It could be manually operated with a detachable crank or motorized. Motorized awnings can be fully equipped with sensors, or be operated with a smartphone or tablet using iOS or Android or the flip of a switch by staff. Additionally, retractable awnings store away under or within in a protective housing, so they don’t spoil the view, and also to protect your investment.
A fixed awning stays out year-round, and a retractable awning can be retracted when not in use, protecting your investment from the elements.
Lighting, speakers, fans, and heaters can enhance your hotel awnings and canopies and make your guests’ visit more memorable. Awnings and canopies can add design elements to your building, shelter walkways, and provide shade. A hotel awning can extend the time an outdoor area can be used too.
Retractable side walls also known as retractable screens, rain, sun and wind sensors, timers, and motors are other systems that work well with some types of hotel awnings. Door and window awnings come in a variety of frame and cover materials and styles to complement any exterior.
