The American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) develops the Safe Stay Checklist

AHLA Releases Top 5 Requirements to Travel Safely

The American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) developed the Safe Stay Initiative earlier this year, introducing a comprehensive set of enhanced industry-wide hotel cleaning standards to ensure greater transparency and confidence throughout the hotel experience for travelers across all properties.

As a part of the Safe Stay program, the AHLA released the Safe Stay Guest Checklist late this summer for travelers to use as a guide on how to travel safely while also creating a standardized safety experience nationwide.

The checklist includes:

  1. Require face coverings in all indoor public spaces and practice social distancing in all common areas.
  2. Choose contactless options, where available, including online reservations, check-ins, and payments.
  3. Consider daily room cleaning, only if necessary. Ask the hotel about your options.
  4. Request contactless room service delivery.
  5. Refrain from traveling if you have, or recently had, any symptoms of COVID-19 or contact with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19.

Adhering to these guidelines will be key to staying safe while on the road.
