The Hotel Industry Is Revolutionizing Clean Standards Around The World.
The COVID-19 pandemic has required Marriott to raise their demanding standards to an even higher level with new protocols for the current circumstances. Marriott is elevating cleanliness standards and changing hospitality norms across their portfolio of hotels.
Marriott has put in place a multi-pronged approach designed to meet the health and safety challenges presented by COVID-19. Below is an overview of the key components of Marriott’s Commitment to Cleanliness.
- Marriott Global Cleanliness Council: Consisting of in-house and outside experts in food and water safety, hygiene and infection prevention, and hotel operations, the council will work to develop a new generation of global hospitality cleanliness standards, norms and behaviors for our more than 7,300 properties around the globe.
- New Cleaning Technologies: While our council develops its work, we have initiated plans to roll out enhanced technologies at properties over the next few months, including electrostatic sprayers and the highest classification of disinfectants recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization to sanitize surfaces throughout hotels.
- Cleaning Regimen Changes: When guests check into Marriott hotels over the next few months, guests will notice a number of additions to our cleaning regimen designed to set an even higher standard of cleanliness for the hotels as well as modifications to associate-guest protocols developed to be consistent with recommended social distancing guidelines.
The steps that Marriott International is taking on cleanliness and new hospitality norms are as much about the health and safety of associates as they are about hotel guests. Marriott believes that we are all in this together. By taking care of associates and following these new protocols – we will be collectively taking care of our guests and the global community.
