SAFETY FIRST, WELLBEING ALWAYS

Our Commitment to Care & Cleanliness

Our top priority for welcoming guests and colleagues back to Hyatt properties is doing it safely, with your wellbeing in mind.

Guided by our purpose of care and experience delivering world-class hospitality for more than 60 years, Hyatt’s Global Care & Cleanliness Commitment builds on our existing rigorous safety and cleanliness protocols and includes: 

  • GBAC STARTM cleanliness and training accreditation process through the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) at all Hyatt hotels
  • Trained Hygiene & Wellbeing Leader or team at all locations, responsible for their hotel adhering to new operational protocols and training
  • Cross-functional panel of trusted medical and industry advisors—including experts from Cleveland Clinic—to help us fine-tune safety protocols and consider various aspects of the entire hotel experience

As we welcome you back, you can have peace of mind knowing we are taking precautionary measures across Hyatt hotels worldwide in an effort to maintain a safe environment for our guests, customers and colleagues. Specifically, here are some enhanced cleanliness and wellbeing measures that you will see and experience at Hyatt hotels in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Southwest Asia*:


Cleaning & Sanitization

We are increasing the cleaning and sanitization frequency of high-touch surfaces and high-traffic guest and colleague areas such as elevators and elevator buttons, escalator handrails, and restrooms, as well as the surfaces and equipment in our gyms and spas—which includes the use of hospital-grade disinfectants. We are also implementing enhanced cleaning protocols for guestrooms, including the removal of high-touch items and minimizing the number of times our hotel teams enter guestrooms.


Temperature & Wellbeing Checks

We are conducting regular wellbeing checks and taking additional precautionary measures based on local situations, which could include mandatory temperature checks and wellbeing checks of colleagues, or wellbeing checks of guests during check-in. Colleagues who report any cold or flu-like symptoms are asked to refrain from coming to work.


Hand Hygiene & Social Distancing

Good hand hygiene is one of the most important steps individuals can take to protect themselves. Reminders on hand-washing techniques are located throughout the hotel, with hand sanitizer stations or sanitizing wipes also prominently placed throughout. Social distancing measures are being extended to areas such as elevators, fitness centers, airport shuttles, and more, while protective shields are being placed at the front desk and grab-and-go markets at many hotels.


Masks & Gloves

Masks and other personal protective equipment are available for colleagues and guests, wherever required, and the policies for utilizing them depends on department responsibilities, tasks, local guidance and requirements. From front desk associates to housekeeping, spa therapists and kitchen staff, colleagues are trained on the importance of wearing appropriate protective gear and are taking additional safety precautions for guests and each other.


Knock & Go Room Service

To promote safety for our guests and colleagues, all room service orders will be delivered to the door, unless otherwise indicated by the hotel. To minimize contact, our colleagues will knock on your door or ring your doorbell to notify you upon the delivery of your order. At some properties, grab-and-go options will be available.


Food Safety Protocols

Our teams are implementing precautionary measures starting with food preparation, to set-up and service, and enhancing food safety and hygiene protocols for restaurants, room service, and group meetings and events. We are frequently disinfecting kitchen surfaces, and colleagues are wearing appropriate personal protective equipment while preparing and plating made-to-order dishes.


International Standards

All Hyatt hotels around the world continue to follow procedures and protocols developed in consideration of guidance and information shared by various health organizations including the World Health Organization (WHO), local authorities and other leading experts and organizations like the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC). Our GBAC cleanliness and training accreditation process focuses on establishing hotel environments that are sanitary, safe and healthy.


These processes and procedures have been developed for Hyatt hotels in the Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and Southwest Asia. A global cross-functional COVID-19 response team is closely monitoring new information and regularly updates the guidance on appropriate processes and procedures for all Hyatt hotels globally. Safety and cleanliness procedures implemented at each hotel may be adjusted in consideration of local practices, government requirements and guidance, and the situation where the hotel is located.
