Hotel Renovator from Focus Entertainment and Two Horizons will have you use your inner designer to renovate the hotel of your dreams. Check out our Hotel Renovator review!

Hotel Renovator from Focus Entertainment and Two Horizons will have you use your inner designer to renovate the hotel of your dreams. Your journey begins after you end up inheriting an old, neglected hotel from your grandpa Roy – a hotel that has certainly seen better days. Many people have already given up on this property, but you immediately realize its incredible potential. It will be up to you to grab your tools and start to tear down the old wallpaper, remove the damaged flooring, and maybe remove a wall or two.

The game can be played either in Sandbox Mode or Story Mode. While in Sandbox Mode, you’ll be able to get even more creative as you take your time to build the best hotel possible with the available tools and resources. By playing through Story Mode, you’ll get to learn more about the hotel and its history as you meet the colorful cast of characters that will take on the role of your VIP clients. Meet their needs while you’re at it to aim at eventually getting a five-star rating for your hotel!

Before you begin, you’ll need to choose who will be your assistant. Your options are Sandra, Yumiko, Max, and the robotic BB101. Who will you pick to be by your side? The game is played from a first-person perspective, so you’ll be moving through each area with the left analog stick as you look around by using the right one. You can run by pressing in on the left analog stick. The X button will be for interacting, so that you can pick up stuff and open doors.

As you start your journey, you’ll realize there’s a ton of trash to dispose of in the hotel. You can do this by moving the on-screen cursor over an object and pressing and holding down the R2 button. If the object can be salvaged, you’ll instead sell it for some much-needed funds. You’ll get to do this right away for the first room you renovate – that would be room 101 – since it seems you already have a guest waiting t for it to be ready!

You will need to use the crowbar to destroy some of the larger stuff, as well as to remove all flooring, walls, and ceiling tiles. Select the crowbar from the tools menu by pressing and holding down the L2 button. Once that’s been taken care of, you’ll have to take out your broom to remove the rubble. You can use tools by pressing the R2 button. If you press and hold down the R2 button, you can “charge up” your tool to handle a bigger surface, which will help to speed things up. After this is completed, you will have to paint the walls in a more modern hue. Choose what tool you’ll use and select a covering style by pressing the R1 button. Select a color and color palette by using the D-Pad.

And then, you’ll have to take care of the furnishing! Guests won’t want to stay in an empty room with no beds, tables, chairs, lamps, and other amenities! You can select objects and rotate them by 90 degrees by using the D-Pad. Items that you’ve already placed can be changed and given a new color or material if you want to. Do remember that every single thing that you do is going to cost money, so you can’t fill up one room with more expensive stuff and not run out of money…. or hope that other guests don’t notice!

The last spot you’ll have to complete in a room is the bathroom. You will need to add a sync, a toilet, a bathtub, some cabinets, some sanitary wall accessories, and some sanitary accessories. Perhaps you should also add some lamps and some decorative items here and there? But remodeling the rooms and the hotel won’t do anything for you if you don’t book some stays and make guests happy! Guest satisfaction is a key component to keep in mind.

The money you earn can also be invested in unlocking new skills to help you in this venture. Some skills will first require that you progress further in the game before you can unlock them. These include a hammer to tear down an entire wall or floor coverage in a single hit. Higher-quality detergents will make it so that rooms don’t get dirty so often. Maybe you’d like to get an automatic cleaning bot to help keep floors shiny? Oh, and you should definitely spend some money on social media so that more people learn about your hotel!

And now, let’s talk about the trophies! Hotel Renovator has a full trophy list with a Platinum for you to try and add to your collection. It’s a list with 12 Bronze trophies, 8 Silver trophies, and 7 Gold trophies for you to work on. You’ll get a trophy after completing the tutorial and gaining your first star. Another trophy will pop when you decide on your new hotel’s name. The rest of the trophies will pop as you work on getting your hotel to a five-star rating, finding all hidden golden eggs, locating items that belonged to grandpa Roy, renovate and rent every single room in the hotel, unlock every skill, obtain money from tips, locate all lost instruments, and more.
