Our Commitment to Cleanliness:

We focus on developing the next level of global cleanliness standards, hospitality norms and behaviors regarding housekeeping, food safety, associate wellbeing, infectious disease and sanitation.

We take our high standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously and are taking additional steps to ensure the safety of our guests and associates. On a daily basis, we ensure that we meet the latest guidance on hygiene and cleaning. Our hotels’ health and safety measures are designed to address a broad spectrum of viruses, including COVID-19, and include everything from hand washing hygiene and cleaning product specifications to guest room and common area cleaning procedures. Specific steps the A|S Boutique Residence is taking include:

Hotel associates – and their own health, safety and knowledge – are essential to an effective cleaning program. Therefore we follow a strict housekeeping and hygiene protocol.
Here are some ways we’re supporting them:
Hand Hygiene: Proper and frequent hand washing is vital to help combat the spread of viruses. In our daily meetings, our staff members are reminded that cleanliness starts with this simple act. It’s important for their health and that of our guests.

Cleaning Products and Protocols:

A|S Boutique Residence uses cleaning products and protocols which are effective against viruses, including COVID-19:
Guest Rooms: We use cleaning and disinfecting protocols to clean rooms after guests depart and before the next guest arrives, with particular attention paid to high-touch items.
Public Spaces: We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in public spaces, with a focus on the tables, chairs, stairs, door handles, public bathrooms and even room keys and room amenities (nespresso machine, safety box, etc).
Back of House: In the spaces where associates work “behind the scenes,” hotels are increasing the frequency of cleaning and focusing on high-touch areas like associate entrances, kitchen, coffee bar and laundry rooms.

Social Distancing:

The A|S Boutique Residence is a large mansion with a limited of amount of guest rooms and guests. Therefore the hotel has more then enough space available to be able to keep the 2 meter distance from the other guests and the staff. At HAV Coffee & Art, which is the breakfast location at the ground floor of the mansion, we have now included our spacious HAV Art Gallery as an additional space to the breakfast place, which results in a very spacious breakfast area with more then enough space for social distancing.
