COVID-19 UPDATE FROM MITY Incorporated

Replacing old tables and linens with Reveal Tables saves time and money 

When MITY first began manufacturing linenless tables in 2011, we knew there was a strong need for these products in the markets we serve. Savvy managers know that using linens adds significant cost to the budget through cleaning services and labor. Not to mention the extra time needed to turnover rooms when linens are in the mix. Eliminating linens has environmental benefits as well.

Here’s one example of a MityLite customer who has benefited from going linenless throughout the property.

Customer Case Study

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Boston – Westborough 

As a full-service hotel in the heart of New England just 26 miles west of Boston, the hotel has 11,000 square feet of meeting and event space including a grand ballroom. Some event spaces can host up to 650 people. 

The Challenge

The DoubleTree was spending thousands of dollars every month on a service to clean linens, which amounted to approximately $20,000 per year. In addition, several hours of labor was devoted each day to counting, sorting, and transporting linens to and from event spaces. Not to mention the time it took to dress the tables and replace linens throughout the day.  

Banquet Manager, Whitney McGee, was searching for a solution that would make room set up and clean up easier for her staff, while General Manager, Scott Smith, wanted to cut costs. They were searching for linenless tables that were attractive and easy to clean in order to save time and money. 

The team was also looking to replace their portable dance floor since it was showing signs of wearThe floor pieces had to be screwed together and it took a lot of time to assemble, adding to labor costs.

The Solution

The team at DoubleTree found what they were looking for at MITY with the MityLite Reveal Large Round Tables, Fixed Width Tables, and Magnattach® II portable dance floor. 

The Reveal tables save Whitney and her team hours every day since they no longer need to deal with linens. According to Whitney, having linenless tables also make the room look cleaner and less clutteredThe tables are already providing a strong return on investment by saving the DoubleTree thousands of dollars every month.  

In addition, they replaced their old dance floor with the Magnattach II. Whitney says the Magnattach is much easier and quicker to assemble than the portable dance floor they had previously, which reduces time and labor costs.

How MITY Made it Easy

Scott said MITY made the process easy by communicating well and being responsive to inquiries. The pricing was good, and the sales representatives were knowledgeable and helpful.  

The MityLite tables were exactly what we were hoping to find. I think linenless tables really open up the space and make the rooms feel bigger.”  

— Scott Smith, General Manager 

“We love the tables and the MityLite carts are crucial because we change out rooms constantly. We need tables and carts that can fit through a single doorway.  

“The dance floor is light and easy to put together which saves a lot of time when setting up for events.

— Whitney McGee, Banquet Manager
