As of 4/21/20 Cleanliness Changes
Over the next few months, when guests are in hotels within the Marriott portfolio, they will notice a number of
additions to our cleaning regimen designed to set an even higher standard of cleanliness for the hotels. Specific
areas of focus include:
• Surface Areas: COVID-19 has raised awareness about the importance of high-touch surface cleanliness. In
public spaces, the company has added to its already rigorous cleaning protocols, requiring that surfaces
are thoroughly treated with hospital-grade disinfectants and that this cleaning is done with increased
frequency. In guest rooms, the company has likewise added to its rigorous protocols, requiring that all
surfaces are thoroughly cleaned with hospital-grade disinfectants. Marriott will also be placing
disinfecting wipes in each room for guests’ personal use.
• Guest Contact: The CDC and WHO warn about direct, person-to-person contact as the primary way
COVID-19 is spread. To help alleviate the risk of transmission this way, the company will be using signage
in its lobbies to remind guests to maintain social distancing protocols and removing or re-arranging
furniture to allow more space for distancing. Marriott is also evaluating adding partitions at front desks to
provide an extra level of precaution for our guests and associates and is working with supply chain
partners to make masks and gloves available to associates. The company is installing more hand sanitizing
stations at the entrances to its hotels, near the front desk, elevator banks and fitness and meeting spaces.
In addition, in over 3,200 of Marriott’s hotels, guests can choose to use their phones to check in, access
their rooms, make special requests and order room service that will be specially packaged and delivered
right to the door without contact.
• Food Safety: Marriott’s food safety program includes enhanced sanitation guidelines and training videos
for all operational associates that includes hygiene and disinfecting practices. At Marriott, all food
handlers and supervisors are trained on safe food preparation and service practices. Marriott’s food and
beverage operations are required to conduct self-inspection using the company’s food safety standards as
guidelines, and compliance is validated by independent audits. In addition, the company is modifying its
operational practices for in-room dining and designing new approaches to buffets.
