Danish women demand ladies-only floors

Women-only floors appear to be making a comeback

Floors of hotels with rooms only for women could be making a comeback. The landmark 812-room Hotel Bella Sky Comwell in Copenhagen says that in a survey it made of “influential and well-travelled Danish women”, more than half said that they would stay on such floors if they were offered. The reasons? A sense of security, a feeling of better hygiene knowing that the previous guest was a woman, and having a room tailored to women’s needs. The hotel therefore opened a secure-access floor for women only in May 2011, with an extra cost of DKK 300 ($55) to stay there. Rooms have extra clothes hangers, bigger showerheads and optional smoothies in the minibar.
Other properties, such as the 180-room Georgian Court Hotel in Vancouver, provide specially tailored rooms to female guests at no extra cost. “Women seem to like the additional amenities we offer, such as a flat iron, a curling iron and an emergency kit with nylons and some other amenities they might forget at home,” the general manager said. Rooms also provide high-quality bathroom amenities, satin-padded hangers, fashion magazines and a yoga mat.
