MARRIOTT: Announces COVID-19 Response Plans, Including Disinfecting Rooms


Hotels are one of the many businesses hurting because of the coronavirus lockdown, and now at least one chain is taking steps to make sure guests will feel comfortable coming back once the lockdowns are eased. 

  • Marriott just announced their plans to keep their rooms and property disinfected, in the hopes it will attract customers.
  • They plan to offer a coronavirus-resistant environment by using electrostatic sprayers with hospital-grade disinfectants to sanitize throughout the hotel, including rooms, lobbies, gyms and other public areas.
  • The products used will be ones recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization.
  • Rooms will be sprayed after every guest visit, with the solution drying in about ten minutes.
  • They also plan to sanitize room keys and are testing ultraviolet light technology to do that.
  • They will add hand sanitizer stations, and will rearrange furniture in lobbies to promote social distancing.
  • They are also looking into making masks available for employees, and may add plastic partitions to front desk areas.
  • Guests can also use their phones to check in, unlock doors, and make room service requests, thereby minimizing contact with staff.
