  1. Dear Mews Development Team,

    Our Housekeeping team had a request/idea for the mobile application.

    At the moment they have to refresh the application and look frequently whether a room has left.

    Would it be possible to integrate a notification or pop up in the application that notifies them when the reception does a check out?

    Thank you for your help.

    Kind regards,
    M. Bence NAGY
    Rooms Division Manager
    Hotel Restaurant Rivage Lutry

  2. It is absolutely necessary to have separate note categories for different departments. Reservations notes are often cluttered with automatic comments from OTAs and those are shown to housekeeping, too. It cannot be expected from housekeeping staff to weed through a sea of notes to find the relevant information for each room. This must be a separate note cetegory where reservation or front office can enter only a short comment for housekeeping (like "baby cot" or "allergy friendly blankets") - this field should be displayed in the app for HK and/or the housekeeping report.

  3. First of all, the app works great for us. But please make it possible to set a default on own preferences. As an example. We would like to see the tasks always on date type: 'deadline'. But the app shows it standard on 'created'.
    Thank you.

  4. Is it possible to have different colours in the application for ”departed”, ”arriving”, ”arrived” and ”stayover”

    For example:
    ”departed” = green
    ”arriving”= orange
    ”arrived” = yellow
    ”stayover” = blue

    Currently, our cleaners easily get confused in a hurry, whether the guest is coming or has left, as all these markings are the same color.

  5. We currently find the process in Mews Operations of assigning cleaners to rooms very clunky... and possibly the worst feature of Mews. Here are some suggestions for improving this process:

    1. Show employee name or incorporate a drop down menu for assignee selection. Currently you have to type in a few letters of the employee's name and then it shows only an email address, so you can't be sure it's the right employee unless you are a genius and know everyone's email address. Surely this is a simple one to solve?

    2. Show what type of clean each room requires in the…

  6. Why do you have a housekeeping app where you still need to pull a manual report for all the details? Can we have the fields in the housekeeping report added to the app so you can see how the rooms need to be set up for the next guest in terms of guest notes and the number of occupancies from a family of 4 to 2 people in the room, then help assist if the sofa bed would need to be put away.

  7. Hi Product Team,

    I would like to suggest that it can be possible to have a start date for Tasks made. We've noticed that whenever we make a task, especially for our Housekeeping Department, they get notified right away even though the task is to be done in a week - for example setting in extra beds og additional cleaning. This has made a lot of confusion and extra work in our hotel, as they finish it on the day the task is made, and not when the deadline is.

    Would it therefore be possible to have a start date…

  8. Currently rooms have to be either:

    1) Dirty
    2) Clean
    3) Inspected
    4) Out of Service
    5) Out of Order

    However, some rooms may be Out of Service for a 'last let' reason and therefore may be Inspected and ready to go (but the team want to be aware that these rooms should only be used last). I think Out of Service and Out of Order should be separate room statuses and can be stackable with the clean state of the room.

  9. It would be nice to have an other option for the room status :

    Currently rooms have to be either:

    1) Dirty
    2) Clean
    3) Inspected
    4) Out of Service

    And I would add :

    5) On queue / Priority

    Like that when the guests arrive early, the housekeeping know the information and will make this room in priority. In my hotel (5*) it's important for us. I'm sure it is in other hotels as well.

    Thanks !

  10. Keep the old system in the app where tags like "departing" is always showing on the rooms. This way you don't have to use the filter.

  11. Operations are complaining about the lack of housekeeping statuses, especially check in status. Optimal functionality would be "occupied" but maybe it could be solved by using clean status at check in?

    The reason for this is that by keeping the space inspected, front office forget to check in reservations (ghost rooms) and they lose control over how many inspected spaces are available to sell to walk ins. For housekeeping it is the other way around - when check in makes room dirty they re-visit already cleaned rooms, disturbs guest etc.

  12. The current functionality of the dirty (legionella) status is linked to the status of a room: if it's in clean or inspected for 7 days it switches to status dirty ( legionella). If the setting of rooms is: change status to dirty on check-out, then it is possible that if a check-in ( but not check-out) occurs somewhere within the 7 day window, the status of the room during the occupancy changes to dirty( legionella). This is incorrect. As the room is occupied the room should not go to legionella status, as it is used.

  13. Reservations checked in after midnight don’t show as stayovers in the morning. This creates confusion for the housekeeping team as the rooms don’t come up in their Space Sratus report.

    Our Housekeeping team assign dirty rooms to Room Attendants from Mews Space Status report.

    They view three reports:

    Departed or departing
    Stayovers
    Arrived or arriving

    Reservations checked in after midnight come under arrived however the guest booked and stayed last night and should receive stay over service.

  15. In the "donut" there should be a diffrent stauts between inspected, stayover/check-in and dirty.

    When checking in a room the status should change to stayover/checked-in. After midnight rooms that should check out can change to dirty.

    The point beeing that it should be easy to see how many rooms the front desk have clean and ready to check-in, but also see that if some rooms are dirty they can flag this before houskeeping goes home.

    Right now since stayover/check-in is also dirty then you manually have to double check all the rooms if a room has been forgotten and not…

  16. When allocating room numbers to employees it is not possible to see if a room is already allocated to another employee. Most days our houskeeping manager devides about 100 room, and its easy to miss that you have allready allcoted the room. It also dose that she acually prints out the list, marks the rooms on paper, and then allocate the rooms in MEWS operations.

    Rooms should be marked/flaged when assigned to make it easier.

  18. Allow a manager to set the minutes per room as a goal time for due outs and stay overs. Have this option to print on the housekeeping assignee report to be able to set a goal time and accountability for the staff.

  19. Dear Madam, dear Sir,
    We are currentely unable to have a clear daily housekeeping report.
    We need the following informations to be displayed in addition to the current informations.
    State of the rooms : Free and clean / Departure / Stayover.
    Today, we are unable to have these informations in our report, we have to check everyy room one by one to define the correct state, which can take us lot of time and effort.
    Looking forward for your answer.
    Regards
    Anis AISSAOUI
    Front desk manager

  20. In the mews app, show the product items that are within the system so that housekeeping knows what to add, a bottle of champagne for example.

    It would be even greater if we would have a setting per product to what we would like to show in the app. Breakfast for example would not be relevant to housekeeping.
