Unique design elements are very important to keep pace with the evolving hotel landscape. While a unique design does not mean an immediate success, it offers the element of surprise to visitors.

Other hotels are revising and improving their brands to cater to the millennial traveller that is looking for a unique experience. For example, a serviced apartment with Instagram-worthy features can offer a more curated experience by allowing a piano to be playedin the room.

New Safety Standards On Stretch Limos In New York

To make the wedding day special, many brides and grooms book for a limousine through Best quality wedding cars hire. There are many wedding-themed limousines that truly provide an elegant transportation where glamour is a must. Wedding couples who arrive in limousines are sure to draw the attention of not only their guests but people on the streets because a limo is always an eye-catching sight.

In New York, Democrat Senator is calling on President Obama’s administration to upgrade the standards of limousines and other motor coaches following the accident that happened in Long Island that killed 4 women. Schumer also sent a letter to Mark Rosekind, the administrator of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to issue new rules on stretch limos that lack side impact air bags, rollover bars and appropriate exits.

Manufacturers follow all the safety standards during the production of limousines and motor coaches and they ensure that all federal tests have been passed so that the safety of the driver and passengers are protected. However, these limos are stretched and modified in aftermarket shops without giving much thought to safety standards so that the driver and his passengers are placed at risk.

In most cases, stretching a limo is often waiting for a tragedy to occur unless the regulations on limousines are tightened. Schumer asked Rosekind to cooperate with the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) so that new requirements can be developed for secondary alterations to limousines and motor couches whose lengths are increased by as much as 120 inches.

Schumer also sent a letter NTSB Chairman Christopher Hart so that accidents involving limos will be investigated. Stretch limos are rented for weddings, proms, birthday parties and other special occasions and people have the right to safety while driving in the luxurious vehicles.

Stretch limos have become rather common but there is very little information on how they perform in case of crash scenarios. Schumer urges for a thorough investigation on the July 19 accident that killed four women with four others injured when the limo they were riding was T-boned by an alleged drunk driver. According to reports, the women were celebrating a bride-to-be and they have just left a vineyard.

The Common Mistakes To Avoid When Putting Up Your Hair Salon

Many are fearful in opening their hair salons. But you can definitely take heart in the fact that every salon owner who has been successful in their ventures has his own fare share of mistakes while climbing the ladder of success. While you are still contemplating on pushing through with your business plan for a hair salon, it is important to keep in mind some of the mistakes that were committed by those successful entrepreneurs.

Overpaying technicians

Remember not to over pay your technicians from the start. There are some entrepreneurs who begin offering their technicians with outrageously crazy percentages like 70 percent. This very high commission can cause trouble later. You will end up resenting paying the amount. How can you therefore lure expert technicians in your hair salon if you will not give them high commission? You can do this by giving the technician a walk through in your business plan. Convince the technician that your hair salon is exciting, credible and has overly huge growth space. If you can convince the technician that your salon will become a success, he or she will want to be part of it.

Inadequate screening process for prospective technicians

Do not ever fall into the mistake of rushing into hiring technicians for your salon business. You should take the time to double check the education, training, abilities, job history and background of your would-be employee. There are a lot of owners who get into serious trouble when they immediately trust an employee and do not subject her to careful scrutiny.

Hiring over qualified technicians

There are also disadvantages to hiring technicians who are equipped with so much experience. According to an expert strategist, he would opt to hire a technician who has one year of experience and someone with no clientele of his own. If you hire someone who has so much years of experience in the business, it would follow that she has embraced some corporate style of the particular salon that she has worked with. These styles may be in conflict with your new salon. There is also a tendency that she may have had bad habits from the previous company.
