Hotel Information

For more information on Marriott's Commitment to Cleanliness, please visit our corporate site.
Providing a safer environment for our guests and associates is a top priority. Achieving this is a shared responsibility. Please join us in our efforts to enhance the safety of our public spaces by complying with local regulations and wearing a face covering - which is required - whenever you're in public areas of the hotel. We do appreciate your support and understanding. We remind you also to practice social distancing, staying at least 6 feet or 2 meters from other guests and hotel associates.
Physical Distancing
We are using signage throughout our hotels to remind guests to maintain social distancing protocols and have removed or re-arranged furniture to allow more space for distancing. In compliance with local and state mandates, occupancy limits and seating capacities have been reduced to allow for appropriate social distancing. We have added partitions at front desks and around food and beverage service areas to provide an extra level of precaution for our guests. Additionally, we have implemented line management initiatives to reinforce proper social distancing within the hotel. For the protection of our guests and Hotel Associates, we have implemented "upon request only" housekeeping service and no Hotel Associates are permitted into guest rooms while a guest is present unless for emergency reasons. Face masks and gloves are available to all of our staff members.

Contactless Service
We encourage our guests to use their phones to check in to the hotel, access their rooms and make special requests to limit contact at the hotel. These "touchless" services can all be done quickly via the Marriott Bonvoy mobile app.
Technology Innovations
Enhanced technologies, including the testing of electrostatic sprayers and implementing the highest classification of disinfectants recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and World Health Organization are being used to sanitize surfaces throughout our hotels.

Deeper, More Frequent Cleaning
We have implemented extra-stringent daily cleaning procedures that are focused heavily on high touchpoint areas. In public spaces, our Hotel has added to its already rigorous cleaning protocols, the requirement that surfaces are treated with hospital-grade disinfectants and that this cleaning is done with increased frequency. Public spaces, including, but not limited to, the lobby, pool areas, fitness centers, and meeting spaces, have dedicated Hotel Associates to sanitize frequently throughout the day. In our guest rooms, we have added detailed cleaning practices, requiring all surfaces to be thoroughly cleaned with hospital-grade disinfectants. We also are placing disinfecting wipes in each guest room for guests' personal use.

Emphasis on Hygiene & Cleanliness
Each hotel will be required to have a hygiene plan. Our Hotel Associates will be required to be aware of and follow for personal hygiene, physical distancing and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), in compliance with all federal, state and local public health guidance. Hand sanitizing stations for guest use will be placed in high traffic areas and public spaces.

Food Safety Protocols
In our hotel, food handlers and supervisors are trained on safe food preparation and service practices. The property's food and beverage operations are required to conduct self-inspections using its food safety standards as guidelines, and compliance are validated by independent audits. We have also enhanced sanitation guidelines and training videos for Hotel Associates that include hygiene and sanitizing practices. In addition, the hotel has modified operational practices and encourages in-room versus public space dining to limit contact in public spaces.

Tailored Options for Meetings & Events
A comprehensive protocol for cleaning, sanitizing, and maintaining physical distancing has been designed to keep attendees safe. Seating capacities and floor plans are reviewed on an event-by-event basis to ensure appropriate physical distancing that follows local fire department, as well as state and local health authority guidelines for proper physical distancing. This includes density reduction in all meeting rooms and pre-function areas. Our public space attendants are dedicated to regular cycles of high-touch point sanitization areas and electrostatic sprayers are being tested in meeting and pre-function areas. In addition, our industry-leading team of sales and event leaders are in place to support meeting planners and attendees in navigating the post COVID-19 meetings landscape.

Case Notification
If the hotel is alerted to a suspected case of COVID-19, the guest will be directed toward appropriate medical care facility and the property will follow the direction of local health authorities. We will then conduct additional cleaning and disinfecting protocols of all areas that the guest may have been in during their visit.

Guest Room Recovery Protocol
In the event there is a guest with a confirmed case of COVID-19, that guest room is removed from service for 24 hours and will undergo a specific cleaning protocol. The guest room will not be returned to service until the room is deemed safe, electrostatically sprayed and treated with hospital grade -consistent with the guidance of local health authorities. Similar protocols will be used to address offices and other back of house areas.ther back of house areas.

Every guest room is thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to your arrival. During your stay, we will not provide housekeeping automatically every day. If you wish to receive daily housekeeping refresh service, please let us our guest services team know. We will be happy to make schedule service according to your preferences. Please note that if you are staying with us a bit longer, we will automatically clean your guest room after every 6th night.
Specific Actions and Initiatives
The actions listed below are an overview of the specific protocols that have been implemented during this time. Each operating department has its own customized set of procedures and is built upon the guidance and consultation of infectious disease experts in the country.
