• We use EPA certified products and CDC protocols to fight against viruses, bacteria and other pathogens on all equipment, furniture and surfaces.
• We have increased the daily number of scheduled disinfecting and sanitization times for all spaces. With caring attention to high touch areas like door handles, banister railings, public restrooms, and elevators.
• Our team has gone through training on COVID-19 safety and sanitization protocols. Including temperature and health checks at the start of every shift.
• Appropriate PPE is required for all staff and available for you upon arrival.
• Removal of high-touch amenities (magazine, pens, notepads, umbrellas, etc.) from rooms. These items will be available upon request. All single use or disposable items in rooms will be removed and disposed of upon the departure of each guest.
• In compliance with local regulations and CDC guidelines, some amenities and services may be limited or unavailable during your stay. Please ask if there is something we can do to make your stay more comfortable.

How guests can join our team in preventing the spread of viruses
• We ask our unvaccinated guests to wear a mask in public spaces and when interacting with our team.
• Practice physical distancing in shared spaces and limit person-to person contact.
• If you have a cough, fever or symptoms of COVID-19 please do not travel. If you become ill during your visit do not exit your room and alert the front desk to call the hotel doctor to advise.
• Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

The Key to NYC
