Why is Background Music for Hotels So Important?

Background music is essential for hotels, resorts, and casinos as it can significantly affect guests’ experiences in your establishment, reinforce your business’s brand, and ultimately contribute to positive reviews and repeat business.

In a study published in the International Hospitality Review, researchers explored the impact of background music on hotel guests’ perceptions and behaviors. They found that appropriate music selection positively influenced guests’ emotions, satisfaction levels, and intention to revisit the hotel. Further, the study highlighted the importance of considering guests’ preferences and the hotel’s brand image when choosing background music to enhance the overall guest experience.
