Hotel housekeeping staffing?

Postby chen12 » Tue May 01, 2012 12:24 pm

If i have Hotel of 30 rooms. By labor law i need to give every employee on day per week off. What would be sufficient number of housekeepers and supervisors to function smoothly. Lets say i'm occupied 100% all year round.

It's really going to depend on how long it takes to service a room from start to finish. Usually 30 minutes is what would be needed for each room.

With 30 rooms you could probably function fine with 7-8 housekeepers, if you had 1 or 2 in your laundry room on any given day, that could leave you with 4 people "on the floor", and 1 or 2 with the day off.
And with that relatively small number of housekeepers, you could have 1 supervisor and be fine.

But, you could do it with a lot fewer people. I work at a hotel with 80 rooms and we've got 8 housekeepers, 1 supervisor, and 1 person that helps out after they serve and clean up breakfast. And they manage to not have any overtime. Granted we aren't 100% occupied at all times.
