“Safe Stay” is AHLA's initiative focused on enhanced hotel cleaning practices, social interactions, and workplace protocols to meet the new health and safety challenges and expectations presented by COVID-19.

Safe Stay Guidelines

The Safe Stay initiative is designed to change hotel industry norms, behaviors and standards to ensure both hotel guests and employees are confident in the cleanliness and safety of hotels once travel resumes.

The AHLA Safe Stay Advisory Council is working in conjunction with public health experts, scientists, and medical leaders to develop a series of best practices for the industry, including the following:

  • Enhanced cleaning standards throughout the hotel, including guest rooms, meeting spaces, common areas, and back-of-house spaces
  • Superior cleaning products with a greater concentration of bacteria-killing ingredients, in accordance with CDC guidelines
  • Social distancing practices and reducing person-to-person contact Increased transparency throughout the guest journey
