As some aspects of our pre-pandemic life resume – including travel – hotels, inns and resorts across the country have been exploring the best way to reopen confidently, not only for their guests but also their staff.
After closing at the end of March, the Green Granite Inn in North Conway, New Hampshire spent three months working on their reopening plan. Working within state and CDC guidelines and training staff on new protocols, the Inn reopened this summer. Their ultimate goal was to always remember that guests visiting the Inn seek a relaxing and comfortable experience during these most challenging days, and to make sure staff was comfortable returning to work.
Alongside providing hand sanitizer, installing plexiglass at check-in, and providing personal protective equipment for all staff, the Green Granite Inn has added Celios G200 Advanced Air Purifiers to guest rooms. The Celios G200 Advanced Air Purifier is effective at capturing the SARS-CoV-2 virus.(1) According to Jennifer, the general manager, their goal was to ensure that guests feel comfortable from the moment they arrive in the parking lot through the duration of their stay.
A key benefit of the G200 Advanced Air Purifiers is allowing the Inn to clean not only the surfaces in the rooms, but also the air in the space. This allows Jennifer and her team to confidently welcome their guests into a clean environment, from the doorknobs and floor to the air they breathe.
Hear more about the Green Granite Inn’s decision to add the Celios G200 Advanced Air Purifiers and what they are doing to meet guest expectations in the video below.
