Once upon a time, InnStyle was one of my competitors. 

Now, a few years later—after TDG’s pivot from merchandiser to education hub—I’m happy to be able to whole-heartedly recommend their excellent hospitality products without any conflict of interest! 

InnStyle is owned and operated by a husband-and-wife team and has been helping the independent hospitality industry since the 80’s. 

As a truly family-run business, their customer service and product quality are top-notch. Below I will outline some of my favorite products from their lineup. 

But first, let’s talk about perks!

Wholesaling Your Rental Linens with InnStyle

If you own or operate even a few short-term rental homes, then wholesaling case packs might be for you. 

Typically, linen case packs include two dozen each of flat and fitted sheets and six dozen pillowcases. A typical towel case pack has two dozen bath towels, ten dozen hand towels, and 25 dozen washcloths. 

That’s a whole lot of product for an individual owner. But if you have a big home or multiple homes, you can really save money and hassle by setting up your own linen program like the big hotel brands. 

Purchasing linens in case pack quantities and setting up a mini linen program for your business can be a godsend and an excellent return on ROI, especially if you are going to a big box discount retailer to replace an entire set of sheets when you only need one pillowcase.  

Fear not, single-property owners! If you do not need or want case packs, InnStyle also sells specific items individually. Any short-term rentalist can sign up for a wholesale account with InnStyle and get the benefit of prefered pricing—even on single items. 

Another thing I love: once you set up your wholesale account, you’ll clearly see the price difference between regular retail and the preferred pricing you get. 

But, of course, in order to get that preferred pricing you must set up a wholesale account. 

The flexibility at InnStyle is a crucial benefit, too. When you buy from big box stories or other online retailers, there’s a chance your preferred product will be discontinued. If you buy from InnStyle, you can always replace single items with the exact same product you’re already using and although manufactures do discontinue product, it is not nearly at the same frequency as the big box retailers. Easy peasy. 

On that note, here is a list of my favorite products from InnStyle—I have recommended them to thousands of STR owners over the years, and you will find this exact product in 4 and 5 star hotels around the globe.

Let’s get to it!

Alanna's online, self-directed short term vacation rental course is THE one you want to take if you are serious about getting into the short term vacation rental game!  This course will take you step-by-step from the initial thought of why you should get involved in short term vacation renting to every possible aspect of operating, maintaining and protecting your investment.  Additionally, you will learn some of Hospitality's Best Business Practices along the way. I highly recommend this course for Beginners and Intermediates to learn much information in one succinct setting.  If you have been operating short term vacation rentals for some time and consider yourself to be at the Expert level, you should take this as a refresher/stay relevant course, as there are many gold nuggets to support you in enhancing your method of operation.

In my experiences as a short term rental host, podcaster and founder of Host2Host, I have found Alanna Schroeder of The Distinguished Guest to be professional, ethical and informative.  She possesses great business savvy, offering views that express her knowledge and her caring.  I have seen Alanna go out of her way to help another host/owner achieve success.  In an industry that is continually growing, Alanna has developed an understanding of how our industry works and who works within it.  I trust her judgement and advice and have learned more from her than from almost anyone else in this field.   Alanna’s contributions and work with Host2Host have been invaluable. Her new course TDGs Blueprint for Beginning Rentalists includes comprehensive and vital information for the short term rental host.  Although it is designed for the beginning host, the course includes so much information it is also great for established hosts.  It’s comprehensive from the purchase of property, through the setup of rental space and navigating Online Travel Agency listings.  The TDG course modules will save headaches and missteps, increasing satisfaction as well as income!

Alanna at The Distinguished Guest has been an invaluable resource while setting up my first vacation rental.  I recently bought a house in Hilton Head Island and knew nothing about what it takes to be a successful vacation rental.  Alanna has always been willing to lend a helping hand and responds quickly to all of my many questions!  If you're looking to set up a new vacation rental or refresh an existing rental, I would highly recommend contacting Alanna to help out.  She provides a 5 star experience!
