Johnathan Kennedy, area GM of The Ashton in Fort Worth, Texas: "While we have always maintained very high cleanliness and sanitation standards, we have elevated efforts by increasing the frequency of disinfecting in public spaces and focus on areas of high touchpoints in guestrooms. We've re-evaluated all services and offerings and value-engineered items that were not seen as a pillar of the hotel image or reputation. Staffing and purchasing decisions are made daily and controls enhanced. Transient leisure demand is the first to return, so the digital marketing is extremely critical. We're requiring all staff to maintain the updated (PPE) standards at all times."
Program includes enhanced cleaning procedures and revised employee training programs
DALLAS (May 4, 2020) - Remington Hotels, a leading third-party management company that operates 87 hotels in 26 states across the United States, is rolling out new guidelines for all properties that include enhanced cleaning protocols and updated training systems, in addition to collaborating on best practices with multiple brand partners including Marriott and Hilton, to protect the wellbeing of guests and associates in response to COVID-19.
The industry, said Remington Hotels President and CEO Sloan Dean, is dealing with three types of customers: Those who want lots of visible evidence of sanitary standards, those who are annoyed by any evidence of adhering to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines—and those who fall somewhere in between these two extremes.Show More
One of the ways in which hotels are adapting to the pandemic is reassessing how they interact with you, the guest. "Daily housekeeping included in the room rate will be a thing of the past," says Sloan Dean, CEO and president of Remington Hotels. "Many hotels are already only providing a deep COVID-19 clean prior to arrival and post checkout. Mobile and contactless check-in will be the new norm. Mobile key adoption has been on the rise exponentially over the last few months."Show More

"It's a lot more palatable to say you're going to cut 30% of your travel, versus lay off more people," said Sloan Dean, chief executive of Remington Hotels, which operates nearly 90 properties for brands that include Marriott, Hilton and Hyatt. Though some of Mr. Dean's properties are seeing business travel by government and health-care workers, hotels in cities such as Chicago, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere that rely on business guests are largely empty, he said. "I think there will definitely be companies where they never reinstate their travel."Show More
"I wish I owned a cleaning supply company," says Sloan Dean, CEO and president, Remington Hotels. "Look at what happened to the price of hand sanitizer." Hoteliers are going to be spending more - a lot more - on cleaning supplies and housekeeping to keep up with new brand standards on hygiene and guest safety.Show More
"Destination markets you can drive to are the hottest—those will come back the quickest. Any beachfront markets, we think there is pent-up demand," said Stan Kennedy, chief operating officer for Remington Hotels, which manages more than 87 properties that include several beachside hotels.
When beaches in Florida reopened a few weeks ago, "we saw an almost instantaneous demand right away on the weekends, and that's continued to grow every week," he added.Show More

"I tend to think that's a reaction to having limited opportunities in this current environment," said Stan Kennedy, chief operating officer for Remington Hotels, which manages more than 87 properties including both Hilton and Marriott franchises. "I think their short-term stays are going to be impacted in a large way, and when you start to get into long term rentals, it starts to compete with a whole different industry than hotels."Show More
