Responsible Hospitality
Responsible Hospitality
We have developed our 11-point Program to ensure a new standard of hotel cleanliness and disinfection. We have developed this Program in careful consideration of major hotel brands standards, OHLA, Ecolab, CDC, and other best practices.
These are our base guidelines. Any more stringent local authority directions or mandates will be complied with and supersede our Program.
Our team takes great pride in the role we play in the lives of our customers and guests. Rest assured that as circumstances continue to develop, one thing will remain constant: We will make our decisions with the health and well-being of our customers, guests, team members, and community as our highest priority.
