The best Hand Dryer for a hotel would be determined by looking at your common customer base.
For the high end 5 star hotel, or hotels with casinos, we would suggest the Mitsubishi Jet Towel or the Dyson Airblade. The Jet Towel and Airblade are prestigious unique hand dryers that you place the hands inside for a dry time of 10 seconds. The Dyson Airblade moves air at speeds up to 400 mph, and it kills 99.9% of all bacteria in the air. You can't go wrong with the Dyson Airblade. However, the Mitsubishi Jet Towel was invented in 1993, making it the most reliable prestigious hand dryer on the market. The Jet Towel Motor is superior. Rated at 3600 hours – or 7 years at 400 uses per day – the motor in the Jet Towel lasts over 3 times longer that any other dryer on the market. Some of the original models in Japan still work to this day. It also operates at just 64 decibels, which is well below most other hand dryers, especially high speed hand dryers.
For all hotels, we suggest the XLERATOR by Excel Dryer. You can choose from a wide variety of brands on our website, but our suggested brand is the XLERATOR. For colder climates, people seem to enjoy the standard heated version. For warmer climates, people don't normally notice when the heated element is omitted. Thus choosing a more energy efficient choice without the heating element will save on electricity. Just look for the ECO version and cut the energy usage down by more than half.
All of these hand dryers would be ideal for hotels because they offer energy savings. The eXtremeAir EXT dries 1,000 hands at the cost of just 18 cents.
If noise levels are of concern to hotel guests, consider our adjustable brands that allow the control of noise vs. speed when installing. Most of our current hand dryers such as the XLERATOR, ExtremeAir, and more have this capability built in.
