Your well-being is top of mind for Choice Hotels and at our thousands of independently owned and operated locations. Guests may experience a growing variety of new and improved cleanliness protocols, products and communications at Choice-branded hotels
Following the CDC’s latest updates to public health guidance for fully vaccinated individuals, Choice Hotels is no longer requiring the use of face coverings in hotel common areas. However, face covering requirements may vary by location as hotels continue to comply with state and local requirements, health ordinances and other regulations. We appreciate your support in helping to protect the safety of hotel guests, employees and visitors.
We’re providing guidance for heightened cleaning protocols for high-traffic areas such as the front desk, fitness centers and pools, as well as other high-touch surfaces throughout the hotel, using hospital-grade disinfectant approved by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to combat the spread of COVID-19.
Every Choice-branded hotel will designate a “Commitment to Clean Captain,” each of whom will complete applicable best-in-class cleanliness training and will be responsible for incorporating the new protocols into their hotel's operations.
Our complete approach to infection prevention includes a close association with Ecolab, who is helping ensure Choice-branded hotels have the right infection prevention programs and training in place to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. This includes a new online resource hub available to franchisees, featuring operational best practices, training and resources from Ecolab's industry-leading experts.
Personal hand sanitizer is available at all Choice-branded hotels. This travel-size bottle may be provided to you at the front desk or in your room, and it’s yours to keep for your convenience and peace of mind.
