Stay Safe: Industry-Wide Hotel Cleaning Standards
AAHOA is proud to represent America's hotel owners on the advisory council that developed Safe Stay, a brand-new industry initiative focused on hotel cleaning standards. Safe Stay, led by AHLA and in partnership with AAHOA and other members of the advisory council, is an industry-wide enhanced standard of health and safety protocols designed to prepare America’s hotels to safely welcome back guests and employees as the economy reopens. As brands continue to develop their own sets of standards and independent hotels will be seeking resources, these guidelines will provide a framework for consistency and confidence for all guests and employees. The Safe Stay guidelines are intended to evolve and will be revised as needed based on the recommendations of public health authorities in compliance with any federal, state, and local laws.
