What measures are being taken to protect guests from COVID-19?

The wellbeing of our guests and Team Members is our highest priority, and we remain diligent in our commitment to provide a safe, hospitable environment for all who enter our doors. In response to COVID-19, 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. As part of the Curio Collection by Hilton, we are also implementing an industry-defining standard of cleanliness and disinfection, Hilton CleanStay with Lysol protection. Highlights of this new program include: guestroom door seals to indicate no one has entered since the room was thoroughly cleaned; extra disinfection on high touch areas; removal of excess in-room amenities, guest-accessible hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes throughout the resort; contactless check-in/check-out; innovative disinfection technologies; and more. In addition, face coverings are required for all team members and guests in public areas with the exception of outdoor areas while maintaining a 6-foot distance from others. Disposable masks are available at the front desk. Team members are also screened daily for symptoms and receive temperature checks before reporting to work.
