Thinking about how safe the hotels are?
We are so delighted to inform you on the extra effort put in to ensure your safety in hotels around the globe and to give you heads up on where to stay when out there on your planned vacation.
Above and beyond typical cleaning, some properties are disinfecting their spaces several times a day and visibly labelling sanitized high-touch items such as remote controls and light switches.
Some properties also now have their own cleanliness programs, which in many cases are available for review on their site.
Spacing out stays
Some properties are reducing potential exposure by temporarily shutting down rooms or properties between guest visits.
Emaar Hospitality Sanitisation Program have detailed information on Dubai hotels readiness so far.
Contactless experience and social distancing
Touchless transactions including contactless check-in, paperless checkout, and custom room service delivery may be adopted to minimize your interaction with others.
Some properties are placing floor markers at elevator banks, check-in and concierge desks and in other common areas to promote social distancing while you wait.
Many venues have switched to grab-and-go style breakfast offerings so they can still start guests’ days off right.
You may also find buffets now have staff serving food and other increased sanitary measures.
Monitoring pools gyms and common spaces
Pools and gyms at some hotels are reopening—with staff cleaning of lounge chairs, tabletops, pool toys and gym equipment between guest use.
So if this is one of the main reasons you want to stay at a specific hotel, we suggest that you double check what facilities will be open to avoid disappointment.
