Hotel Stays - 5 tips to stay safe & healthy

24TH JUNE 2021

With the reopening of hospitality across the UK, you are probably thinking about a getaway, if you haven’t booked something already. No matter where you are headed, a hotel stay may be on the cards. Staying in a hotel can be as safe as anywhere else, provided you follow our 5 tips below and protocols from the hotel itself.

All our venues have COVID-19 policies and procedures in place to safeguard visitors, staff and their community. As well as following comprehensive cleaning protocols, many venues have flexible booking policies so you can amend or cancel your reservation should your plans change.

5 tips to stay safe and healthy

If you are staying in a hotel this summer, follow our top 5 tips to keep yourself and others safe.

1. Good hand hygiene

It’s common sense and ingrained into most of us by now, but don’t forget to wash your hands frequently or use hand sanitiser stations, which should be dotted around public areas. Try not to touch your face.

2. Public Areas

Wear a mask in common areas of the hotel and social distance. Take the stairs instead of the lift if you can. Pay attention to signs reminding you of social distancing protocols.

3. Hotel bedroom

In your hotel room, pass up on daily housekeeping. It’s best to have as few people come into your room as possible. Open the windows from time to time to allow fresh air to circulate. You could request extra towels, at the start of your stay, or ask the hotel to bring you new towels and leave them outside your door.

4. Contactless options

There are things you can take advantage of as a guest to check into your hotel room, without ever having to go through the lobby. Use contactless options such as checking in online, mobile room key, and contactless payments. Most venues have a mobile app, so all you have to do is download and go.

5. Book hotel services in advance

For services at the hotel such as the restaurant, room service or leisure facilities, book in advance to minimise contact. In addition, services may be operating at reduced capacity to allow for social distancing. Plan ahead so you don't miss out or to get your preferred time slot. Request al fresco dining when the weather is good.
