VRANCOR GROUP ANNOUNCES REOPENING OF HAMPTON INN BY HILTON SUDBURY
Sudbury, Ontario – June 10th, 2020
Today, Hampton Inn by Hilton Sudbury, which temporarily closed operations on March 20th, 2020, began welcoming guests back to the hotel.
In early March, over the course of a few short weeks, travel throughout the world reduced to a near halt. As owner and operator of two top hotels in Sudbury (Hampton Inn and Homewood Suites by Hilton Sudbury), Vrancor adjusted operations accordingly, which meant a reduction in hours, temporary leave for some team members and outright temporary closure to some facilities including Hampton Inn by Hilton Sudbury. Homewood Suites Sudbury has, and continues to remain, fully operational.
The hotel employs 35 associates including management and hourly team members. Staffing levels will increase as business levels improve. The timing will be guided by continued, phased lifting of travel and gathering restrictions by local Public Health and the Provincial Government.
“What’s happening inside our hotels is changing” said Peter Nyklchuk, General Manager. “In addition to existing social distancing practices that are carefully laid out in public areas and elevators, Hilton has developed a global program that will introduce a new standard of hotel cleanliness and disinfection to ensure guests enjoy a confident, clean and safe stay: Hilton CleanStay™ Experience with Lysol Protection”.
This industry-leading program impacts every aspect of the hotel experience and reinforces the commitment to the wellbeing of guests and team members. Heightened efforts build on already high standards of housekeeping and hygiene that will use Lysol disinfectants to effectively clean guestrooms, fitness and business centres, lobbies and meeting spaces. Extra attention is given to high touch areas including light switches, door handles, TV remote controls, elevator buttons, and faucets. Guests will have access to disinfecting wipes and sanitizer at entrances, high traffic areas and guestrooms. Technologies that provide contactless check-in and check-out with Hilton Digital Key were already in place prior to the virus outbreak, along with mobile chat abilities. As guests approach their room, they’ll see that it has been sealed by housekeeping after deep cleaning and disinfection. They will experience a room disinfected just for them. The hotel will continue to serve complimentary daily Grab & Go Breakfast offerings to minimize contact. Plexiglass has been installed at the Front Desk to offer guests additional separation while still providing for interaction and a warm welcome.
“We will never loose sight of being a hospitality business where a connection with our guests is central to providing a great guest experience” said Nyklchuk. “The whole team is excited to resume operations”.
