Some people will find it hard to be their best if they have to endure strains and stress of traveling frequently and mostly because of business. Clarion Hotel Oslo has converted one of its hotel rooms into a massage studio in collaboration with the company Squeeze, which offers drop-in massages in various places in the capital.

“We realized we needed a new approach, and this is both a way to utilize hotel capacity and give our guests a unique offer,” says hotel director Robert Holan. “We had available hotel rooms and Squeeze needed more massage rooms. In the unusual situation we and the rest of the hotel industry are in, it is exciting as well as necessary to challenge the norm for what a hotel should contain and be. Innovative solutions can solve new challenges,” adds Holan.

Increased customer loyalty
In this way, Clarion Hotel Oslo gets a better exposure and PR value and simultaneously benefits the local community. “It is exciting to be part of the projects,” says Holan.
With a creative solution like this there is also an increase of the customer loyalty and it is also an indirect and direct benefit to both the hotel and the clients. In these hard economic times, having an in-house massage offer creates better results compared to investing in building a spa facility.

Improving emotional and mental health
Stress is the way that your body reacts to emotional, mental and physical reaction to challenging events. “If you are exposed to environmental or emotional reasons, you may feel always on guard. This is the chronic stress trigger that makes the body to tense over. The massage can improve emotional and mental health through treating stress related problems,” says Henrik Apall, COO of Squeeze AS.
The reaction from the guests has been extremely positive. They appreciate the serious massage offer and the facilitated order system. Customers who want a massage book via the massage chain’s website and Clarion Hotel Oslo pops up as an alternative in addition to the other clinics in the Norwegian capital.
In Squeeze, Holan and his colleagues found an innovative partner that hotel guests can have the pleasure of trying out during their hotel stay. At the same time, Oslo’s residents can combine a good massage experience in the new hotel in the recently developed business area Bjørvika. Clarion Hotel Oslo opened its doors in August 2019.
“Many business travelers and other hotel guests miss a professional and easily accessible massage service. At the same time, there are few hotels that have massage as part of their own operation. This is a win-win situation,” says Apall.
