MCR's Commitment to You

Our doors remain open at hotels across the country — and your well-being is our primary focus

 

Updated July 28, 2020

 

At MCR, the well-being of our guests and team members has always been our highest priority.

Most of our hotels across the country remain open and we are here to help. We have comfortable beds, clean guestrooms and team members ready to warmly welcome you with smiles and gratitude.

 

Above & Beyond

Based on guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), we are taking extraordinary preventative measures to help keep our guests and team members healthy and safe.

 

Our Above & Beyond health and safety plan — described below and on signage throughout our hotels — will be updated regularly to reflect the latest science.

 

Health and Safety Highlights

  • Stringent cleaning and disinfecting protocols are in place. We are using only disinfectants qualified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as effective against COVID-19. (See more on our cleaning procedures below.)
  • Social distancing is required. Visual markers ensure that everyone has a guide for remaining at least 6 feet apart throughout the hotels. We have rearranged furniture and furnishings where possible and team members are enforcing 6-feet distances in public areas (such as the hotel lobbies and entrances), event spaces, restaurants and employee areas.
  • Masks are a must. Team members, guests, visitors and vendors must wear a face covering at all times in public spaces where social distancing cannot be maintained, except when smoking outdoors, actively drinking or actively eating. We may ask you to remove your mask briefly to provide age or identity verification. (For security purposes, coverings that obscure the entire face are not permitted.)
  • Sanitizing stations are available throughout the hotels. Touchless stations stocked with hand sanitizer or sanitizing wipes (containing 60% ethanol or 70% isopropanol in keeping with CDC standards) are placed in public and employee areas.
  • Elevators are limited to two people.
  • Team members are required to wear the provided Personal Protective Equipment and they are receiving additional training. The training covers proper handwashing and other safety techniques.
  • Plexiglass has been added at many front desks.

 

Cleaning and Sanitizing

 

Public Spaces

  • Cleaning in all public spaces is increased with special attention to high-touch surfaces. These surfaces include, but are not limited to, front desk counters, door handles, counters, chairs, tables, guestroom door locks, electronic kiosks, escalators and stair handrails.
  • Only EPA-certified disinfectants qualified for use against COVID-19 are used.
  • Restrooms are stocked with EPA-approved antimicrobial soap.
  • Fitness centers are stocked with hand sanitizer and sanitizing wipes so guests can wipe down equipment before and after use.
  • Fitness centers and pool areas are cleaned every hour.

 

Guestrooms

  • Guestrooms are deep cleaned after every checkout. Daily cleaning will only be performed by a team member when you are absent from the guestroom.
  • Only EPA-certified disinfectants qualified for use against COVID-19 are used. We pay special attention to high-touch areas such as hard surfaces, counters, television remote controls, toilet seats and handles, door and furniture handles, faucet handles, nightstands, telephones, control panels, light switches, thermostats and flooring.
  • Room keys are sanitized before distribution. We try not to share items like pens, but if we must, they are disinfected between uses.
  • Amenities are available by request. Minibars and reusable items in guestrooms have been removed — please call the front desk with any requests.
  • Our laundry services wash linens in high temperatures. If you need extra linens, let us know. When linens are collected for washing, we are using sealed laundry bags.
  • In the event of a suspected case of COVID-19, the guestroom will be closed and deep cleaned. The guestroom will not be available for occupancy until the room is deemed safe.

 

Restaurants

  • Only EPA-certified disinfectants qualified for use against COVID-19 are used.
  • Food and beverage team members are employing enhanced sanitation guidelines and training aides backed by experts, including the State Department of Health, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Ecolab and the National Restaurant Association.
  • Food preparation techniques are enhanced, and we are performing self-audits and independent audits.
  • Menus have been modified. Buffets are suspended and our focus is on grab and go items.

 

Event Space

  • Only EPA-certified disinfectants qualified for use against COVID-19 are used.
  • Social distancing is required. Furniture has been spaced 6-feet apart and attendance will be capped based on the current local guidelines.

 

Medical Concerns

  • If you are not feeling well, let us know. Our front desk staff is available 24/7 to assist you with emergency numbers and referrals to nearby medical facilities.
