  • Guests have access to handsanitisers and disinfectant wipes.
  • Low-contact check-in.

  • Respect guest's choice of social distance, whenever possible.

Rest Easy

As always, the safety and security of our guests and team members remain our highest priority. We are doing everything we can to ensure the guest‘s safety as the situation around novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve.

We take great pride in maintaining the highest standards of cleanliness and hygiene. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken additional measures developed in consultation with global and local public health authorities (including the WHO and CDC) to make our cleaning and hygiene protocols even more rigorous:

  • Our hotel teams are receiving ongoing briefings and enhanced operating protocols.
  • We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas (including lobbies, elevators, door handles, public bathrooms, etc.)
  • We have increased the deployment of antibacterial hand sanitizers.
  • We will continue to adjust food and beverage services in accordance with current food safety recommendations.

We encourage guests to:

  • Wash hands frequently and use a paper towel to dry.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay at home when sick.
  • Cough or sneeze into the bend of elbow or into a tissue, then throw it away immediately.
  • Greet with a smile instead of a handshake or a hug.
