Hotel Linen: Things To Consider

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Hotel linen must be able to withstand the rigorous washing processes for commercial laundry, as well as general spillages that come with being regularly used. Consequently, when deciding on the type of linen you will invest in, you’ll need to consider various factors to ensure it meets your hotel’s requirements.

With a wealth of experience providing a wide range of linens to various kinds of business, the latest blog post from Queens Drive Laundry takes a look at considerations for hotel linen to help you make the best choice.

Thread Count

Many people often search for the highest thread count but aren’t always sure what it actually means. The thread count of a product refers to the number of threads in one square inch. Whilst the general rule is the higher the thread count, the softer the fabric, this is not always the case, due to the fact that different linens require different thread counts in order to produce the finished product.


When we speak of the weight of the fabric, we are referring to the density of fabric in grams per square meter (gsm). The gsm of a fabric can also be viewed as a marker of its quality.

Something that should be noted is that where there is a high thread count, the fabric may wear more quickly because the individual threads that make up the fabric are thinner.

Fabric Composition

Depending on the composition of a fabric, the product will have different, weight, handling and durability, all factors of which can affect how luxurious it feels for your guests.

Whilst cotton is a highly popular and breathable material, cotton-rich fabrics, which usually have a blend of polyester and cotton often come at a cheaper price and offer the same high levels of durability and comfort.
