Hotel Towels: A Buyers Guide
A Buyer's Guide
All towels are not made equally - there is a range of sizes, shapes, styles, and materials to choose from. Your hotel guests will have different needs, and you'll need to provide the right towels to ensure their comfort. But where do you actually begin? What do you need to know about buying hotel towels?
This simple buyer's guide will give you all the information you need to make the perfect choices.
Understanding Towel Types
There are five main towel types for you to understand; washcloths, hand towels, bath mats, bath towels, and bath sheets. Their uses are fairly self-explanatory, and they can all be made from different materials, but their difference lies in their size - ranging from smallest to largest, as listed.
Generally, the size ranges are as follows:
Typically 12 x 12" or 13 x 13"
Used for face and body washing
Range from 15 - 18" x 27 - 32"
Used for drying face and hands after washing
Ranging between 20 - 22" x 30 - 36"
used to minimise slip risk while bathing
Ranging between 20 - 30” x 40 - 60”
Used for drying hair and body after bathing
Between 35” x 66 - 70”
Basically larger bath towels for more drying coverage
