  • Our guest room housekeeping teams are disinfecting such items as:
  • Door handles, desks, tables, chairs, lamps and light switches, dresser drawer handles, thermostats, drapery pull handles, mini bar, menu and room collateral, telephones and keypads, TV remote controls, alarm clocks, televisions, safety latches and peepholes, trash receptacle touch points, iron handles, hangers, luggage racks, faucets and toilet handles, and more.
  • Gloves used by our housekeeping teams are changed and disposed of between rooms or changed and disposed of multiple times per guest room.
  • We are also applying the same level of effort to our “back of house” areas where team members work “behind the scenes,” including increased frequency of cleaning and a focus on high-touch areas like team member entrances, locker rooms, laundry rooms and staff offices.
