I worked at a hotel (not Hilton) in college and they targeted 26 mins per room. The rooms were similar to what I see in most Hiltons, so I would assume it is about the same. If the room attendant was able to get 1-2 more rooms in during the same period of time they would get a small bonus.
Does anyone know the approximate time it takes to clean or prepare rooms for the following types:
Deluxe Plus Rooms
If anyone can help me out. Any answers welcome. Anything from past experiences to actual fact knowledge welcome.
Standard room takes a bit less than 30 minutes and a deluxe room/suite about 10-15 minutes more. I have worked in 4 different hotels. Ramada, Intercontinental, Hilton and Crowne Plaza. It is the same everywhere. LUXURY hotels might give an extra 5 minutes per room. Or then there might be 2 people cleaning the room if in Asia (India, Thailand etc.)

I'm lazy and not doing a search, but I think I recall a recent article saying 14 rooms per shift was expected of an Housekeeping employee. I'd imagine this information is not proprietary, and would not be so difficult to get.
An interesting thread and an interesting question.
It would seem that the average is somewhere between 30 and 45 minutes.
Time of 1 hour and 45 minutes at the Four Seasons seems rather longer than anyone would expect.
