Sonesta International Hotels Corporation has announced it will be collaborating with Cleaning Services Global, in partnership with EarthSafe, to provide comprehensive testing procedures to meet the needs of group business clients in today’s environment.
To support returning group business needs at Sonesta properties, select hotels in its North American portfolio will align with Cleaning Services Global to provide efficient screening and testing—including pre-testing, on-site testing and post-testing services—to all conference, event and meeting attendees. In addition, Cleaning Services Global will provide a secure data technology platform in an effort to recreate a productive environment. Meeting and event planners will work directly with Cleaning Services Global to coordinate the level of service needed, and Sonesta will assist with space and accommodation arrangements for medical staff at the property level.
Pre- and post-testing services will be available at all Royal Sonesta and Sonesta Hotels & Resorts locations. In addition, the following hotels will also offer on-site testing:
- Royal Sonesta Boston
- Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria
- Sonesta Resort Hilton Head
- Sonesta Redondo Beach & Marina
- The Allegro Royal Sonesta Hotel Chicago Loop
- The Chase Park Plaza Royal Sonesta St. Louis
These additional testing services, from Cleaning Service Global, will supplement the existing health and cleanliness program, "Stay Safe with Sonesta," which is established in all U.S. Sonesta hotels and meets Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and government requirements and guidance as it relates to COVID-19.
The "Stay Safe with Sonesta" program outlines enhanced meeting and event space protocols, such as room set-ups with appropriate physical distancing, the removal of non-essential items, augmented cleaning and sanitizing protocols and modified food and beverage offerings, including single-serve items.
This announcement also comes on the heels of Sonesta becoming the first hospitality company to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED with Forbes Travel Guide across all brands, further solidifying its commitment to the health and safety of its team members and guests. The comprehensive facility verification helps ensure that guests and travel planners can book with confidence at properties that have appropriate health safety procedures in place.
