Feel at ease when you stay with us

Hygiene and cleanliness have always been our top priorities, and during the past weeks, we have taken additional steps to lessen the impact of the virus. At our hotels and offices, we are rolling out temperature checks and ensuring that our spaces are safe for our guests and staff. That means increased social distancing, repeated cleaning at high-touch areas, additional hand sanitisers, frequent room key disinfection, and more guidance on good hand hygiene.

As things develop, we continue to follow the best practices and official guidance as advised by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local government authorities. The staff at our hotels are instructed on our contingency plan, and we are prepared to adapt operations hotel-by-hotel when it is in the best interest of our guests, staff, or public health.
