Beyond that, we hope you stay healthy and safe and that you have a comfortable stay with us.
Health & Hygiene: We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. Our cleaning crew thoroughly cleans all surfaces with anti-bacterial cleaning products, and during this time we have instructed them to pay special attention to the “high-touch” areas – particularly doorknobs, remotes, handles, etc. in addition to the following:
- Extra disinfection of high touch areas in guest rooms including light switches and door handles.
- Increased cleaning frequency of public areas.
- Hand sanitizer in guest rooms and high traffic areas.
- Reduced paper amenities (like books, pads and magazines) in rooms.
- Evaluation of new technologies like ultraviolet light to sanitize surfaces and objects.
- Enhanced team member safety and well-being with personal protective equipment and enhanced training and protocols.
- We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, staircases, door handles, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
- We will continue to adjust our policies and procedures in accordance with current food safety recommendations.
