A Note from the Field

To our 1 Hotels community,

SH Hotels & Resorts was brought to life with a focus on honoring and protecting the world while providing a luxury experience to our guests. As we continue to navigate the global COVID-19 pandemic together, a noticeable and necessary evolution of our DNA and operations took place in order to safely and cautiously welcome our invaluable guests and team members back to our properties. We want you, our family, to know that in accordance with guidelines provided by the CDC, we constructed a sanitation and operations plan that takes into account the complete guest experience from before you arrive until you head back home.

We are ready when you are.
All properties are sanitized using hospital-grade EPA approved agents and virus-eliminating UV technologies. All guests and team members enter the property only after their temperatures have been scanned and if they are wearing a mask. Throughout our public and team member areas, we offer touchless hand sanitizer and both sanitation and social distancing guidance through signage and monitoring. High touch points like door handles and elevator surfaces and public area furniture are sanitized multiple times per day using UV technologies.
We’re only as strong as our teams.

Our team members are equipped with their own hand sanitizer and personal protective equipment which is worn at all times, maintain a six-foot distance, and employ operating procedures to ensure your comfort and safety at all times. Each team member is trained on handling guest-facing materials and underwent further Health and Safety courses prior to reopening our doors.
Your arrival sets the tone for your stay.
All guests are welcomed with a wellness kit for their personal use, their luggage and packages are sanitized using UV technology upon arrival, and guests arrive to a sanitized and sealed guestroom. Guestrooms are sanitized using both hospital grade and activated oxygen sanitizing agents.

We offer contactless guest services including check-in, mobile key, television controls, menu ordering and payment, service requests, concierge support, front desk text messaging and check out (service availability may vary by property and stay dates).

Keeping you well-nourished is important to us.
Updated spacious floor plans allow you to eat at a safe distance from any other patrons. Our serving team members wear masks and gloves at all times, and our kitchen staff practices rigorous cleaning processes. In addition, our  management team has undergone ServSafe® certification, ensuring enhanced safety training and educational materials. Our casual outlets will feature amped up pre-packaged and sealed offerings to keep you nourished on the go. As a precautionary measure, we've eliminated all family-style and buffet dining experiences. 

As new information becomes available, we will continue to grow our efforts in this plan as directed by medical and public health experts to ensure we remain vigilant in our journey to provide the most up-to-date courses of action to keep you safe.

To ensure that we are upholding these stringent new guidelines, we introduced a new role at each of our hotels, a Director of Environmental Health & Safety, who also serves as a resource for guests should they have any questions regarding the security of our hotels. During times like this, our team is here to help guide you through uncertainty, while ensuring that you and your loved ones have an enjoyable, memorable and most importantly, safe stay at your home away from home. On behalf of the entire SH Hotels & Resorts family, we can’t wait to welcome you back.

Staying Healthy & Reducing the Spread

To reduce spread of respiratory infections including COVID-19, we are urging guests and team members (hotel employees) to:
• Self-isolate and inform the hotel immediately if they develop a fever (100.4°F/ 38°C or higher), begin to feel feverish, or develop other signs or symptoms of sickness.
• Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue. Dispose used tissues immediately in a disposable container or a washable trash can.
• Avoid touching their eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
• Wash their hands often with soap and water, especially after coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not immediately available, they can use a hand sanitizer containing 60%-95% alcohol), until soap and water is available.
• Team members to stay home if they are sick until at least 24 hours after their fever is gone without the use of fever-reducing medicines, or after symptoms have improved (at least 4-5 days after symptoms started).
