Beyond Clean Rooms

Content Services for Lodging indicators for purified hotels

The COVID 19 crisis has accentuated a need for hoteliers to provide peace of mind to their guests; allowing them to sleep comfortably knowing their room has been thoroughly sanitized. While hotels have always taken providing clean rooms seriously, some are taking actions that will provide them a competitive advantage as the travel and hospitality industry rebounds. These hotels want to ensure that individuals shopping for rooms understand there is a difference.

Hotels are creating new protocols that go above and beyond standards provided by USEPA, other governing bodies and trade organizations which may include:

  • Disinfecting air handling units using natural solutions like 'tea tree oil cartridges' in the HVAC systems after a thorough cleaning to inhibit the growth of bacteria and mold.

  • Specialized surface cleaners that disintegrate bio films and maximize the removal of dirt bacteria and mold.

  • Ozone shock treatments used in the initial process, or after an outbreak, for the complete elimination of bacteria, viruses, germs and odors.

  • Bacteriostatic barriers used to repel microorganisms that can cause illness and distress.

  • Air purifiers that are categorized by FDA as class II medical devices with the ability to eliminate 98-100% of bacteria and viruses

  • Allergy-friendly bed encasements that protect guests from dust mites

Sabre Content Services for Lodging APIs provide the ability to search for and identify properties with the new 'safe stay' indicator to allow hoteliers to clearly highlight the new standards they have implemented.

The indicator is also displayable in our Sabre Red 360 lodging response as noted in this example:

As 'social distancing' and travel restrictions continue, travelers have an added assurance that every effort is being made to keep them safe and healthy during their hotel stay.
