In the hospitality industry, hotels and AirBnB’s are ready to reopen themselves for their guests but following all the coronavirus SOP’s issued by the WHO. Today, this lockdown has further clarified the importance of travelling. Everyone of us wants to visit the places we used to go. But for this, to keep their guests safe, all the hotels must follow the rules and regulations. Only after this the pandemic can be controlled and ended easily.
Hotels all over the world are cautiously reopening for the summer and autumn travel season. But nothing is the same as it was before the lockdown. AHLA (American Hotel & Lodging Association) has introduced its Safe Stay Guidelines for the hotels of the USA. it included advisors from all the big hotels in the country including Intercontinental, Marriott, Omni, and many more.
But what do you need to do before reopening?
Fast Check-in: If the guests are arriving by air, all the hotels must clean the area before and after that guest visit a place. This is just to make sure that he remains safe in the hotel and if hes infected, others remain safe from him too.
If the guests are arriving by a Car, there is no need to greet the guests with a whole valet team now. Instead use UKEy Smart that provides contact less fast check ins.
We know we all want to avoid the process of booking rooms and entering the hotels after proper check-ins. In this whole process, there are many chances to come in contact with people and many different things. Ukey helps in this situation by offering a hassle-free and fast check-in in the hotels. The effort less engagements at the hotels will help the users to move to their rooms safely and quickly.
Stepping into the lobby
Get ready to stop the guests at many points to just have a quick wellness screening and temperature check. Also make sure all the guests when outside their rooms, must wear a mask, have a hand sanitizer and maintain the six-foot social distancing policies. Place hand sanitizing stations at places that are easily accessible by the guests.
Checking into Your Room: To check in, there is a good chance you’ll avoid the front desk entirely. Many hotels like Marriott International and The Way finder Hotel have started to provide digital keys to their guests that allows them to check in and unlock the room doors via their mobile phones. This completely eliminates the need for magnetic key cards and standing in queues with other guests.

Walking through the hotel
Staff may no longer escort you to — or show you around — your room, and elevators are being limited to just the people in your party. On the way to the room, you’ll likely pass more cleaning staff than in the past — for good reason.
