“It gives the folks coming here not really understanding what travel might be like nowadays the confidence to say, ‘okay, I now know that this room was actually cleaned and sanitized,'” said Fatta. “Then, you’ll have confidence that you and your loved ones are safe while staying with us.” Hotels reopened during phase three in the Southern Tier. Fatta says she’s just happy to have her employees back to work. Managers say there will no longer be their breakfast buffets available. Instead, they will provide food like breakfast sandwiches and muffins that can be heated up as well as oatmeal and other items. The biggest thing, however, that the hotel is promising is employees will be wiping down touch points all throughout the building. (WBNG) — When hotels were finally able to reopen to the public in phase three, they were not able to go back to their old ways of business. At Tru by Hilton hotel in Vestal, you will notice some things have changed. Once you walk into the main lobby, there will be a plexiglass between you and the front desk assistant. Hilton Hotel is teaming up with Lysol to so all areas of the hotels are clean. To ensure customers they are doing a thorough job, the employees will be wrapping touch points with plastic wrap like remotes and when the entire room is cleaned, they will put a sticker right where the door meets the frame to let everyone know it has been freshly cleaned. “Instead of cleaning just once per shift, we’re now cleaning several times per shift,” said Tru by Hilton General Manager Kristen Fatta.
