A hotel in the US is due to open its doors once again this weekend after a period of closure that allowed it to make several significant upgrades and carry out a deep clean.
The Tallman Hotel and Blue Wing Saloon Restaurant in the Californian destination of Upper Lake shut down on January 2nd so that the work could begin, reports the Lake County News. Owner Bernie Butcher is looking forward to being back in business and has lined up four musical performances to launch the reopening.
He explained that areas such as the kitchen have been targeted and an extensive renovation has been completed there. Indeed, he described the work of the constructors as "amazing" and praised them for finishing their work within three weeks.
While customers are not likely to notice any major changes, the infrastructure of the hotel is now much improved. New kitchen facilities and plumbing are just two of the aspects that have been enhanced.
Hotel manager Susan Mesick said: "Everything is spotless and ready to go. As the economy slowly improves, we're looking forward to seeing a lot of new guests coming to Lake County - and hopefully staying at the Tallman."
As well as the deep cleaning the hotel has undergone, it has been the subject of repair work that should also set it up for a prosperous and safe future. Such a process could provide inspiration to other hotels around the world, which may now also see the benefits of engaging in rigorous cleaning to provide a more attractive space to guests and staff.
All the hard work at the Tallman is sure to have been worth it when the reopening ceremony kicks off with the Concert with Conversation event on Saturday (January 26th) and is followed by items such as a performance by the Sylvia Herold Jazz Trio.
Reports of a successful relaunch might be all it needs to attract plenty more guests in the future.
