What It’s Like To Stay In A Luxury Hotel Right Now | Forbes
If you are looking to stay in a luxury hotel this summer, these are some of the policies and procedures you can expect to encounter.**
Forbes Travel ~ ” Travel came to a standstill in the United States in March, as the coronavirus emptied roadways, attractions, restaurants, bars, hotels and the skies. But there’s finally some movement. As the lockdown lifts in cities all over the globe, more and more hotels are reopening.
To provide some guidance to the hospitality industry, Forbes Travel Guide put forth its own recommendations on ways to deliver luxury service during COVID-19. Nimble hotels have become well versed in health protocols, social distancing and evolving regulations (since health guidelines vary by state, check with the property on specifics before booking and refer to our list of reopened hotels and their safety protocols) and those that have adapted best are employing some of the latest technology, careful planning and not a small amount of creativity. These adjustments haven’t come at the sacrifice to service.
If the steady stream of reopenings is any indication, many hotels seem up to the task. ‘I think it will be a challenging journey, that’s for sure,’ says Chris Erickson, hotel manager of The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City. ‘We feel like we hit the bottom, and we’re climbing out of this. But I’m excited and looking forward to a really strong end of 2020 and 2021 coming out of this on top.’
We take you through the full post-quarantine hotel experience, from the moment you pull up to the valet to checkout. This is the first installment in a three-part hotel series that also will examine the changes being made to restaurants and food offerings as well as at the spa, gym and golf course.” ~ Forbes Travel
