To our customers, guests and associates:
In preparation for the reopening of our Krystal® hotels and the brands we proudly operate among which we have Hilton, Hyatt and Marriott brands, we are doing everything necessary so that when you resume your business and pleasure trips, you can feel the highest confidence and trust in our very high Hygiene standards when choosing any of the hotels we manage.
We are proud to be the first Mexican hotel chain to announce a sanitary certification program under the name Stay Safe&Clean, based on compliance with strict hygiene and sanitization protocols, which will be audited and certified with the main objective for our guests to feel safe in our hotels.
Stay Safe&Clean is the result of a deep analysis of both national and international standards to define actions for cleaning and disinfecting of our hotels and all their facilities, which consists of:
- Protocols: Stay Safe&Clean, is supported by standards and methods recommended by Ecolab, a world leader in water, hygiene and energy products & services to ensure clean and safe environments efficiently and sustainably.
- Procedures: Through our partnership with Ecolab, we implemented additional cleaning and disinfection procedures before and during their operation of our properties. We will also carry out training required by local health authorities as well as include new procedures from the brands we work with.
- Certification: To certify our Stay Safe&Clean program and after comparing various certifying companies, we have chosen Cristal International Standards, who provide services based on world-class models such as the Codex Alimentarius, HACCP-Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point Certification, WHO European Commission Health & Food Safety, and for being an active member and part of the panel of experts for ABTA tourism sector standards design.
Our certification and procedures will be covered in all areas of our hotels and will be continuously improved. We will also be adapting our model to new trends and best practices. We will be focusing on the following:
Rooms: A special procedure is performed for areas that have many touchpoints. These include deep cleaning and continuous disinfection of door handles, furniture, light switches, remote controls, plugs, and all bathroom accessories and other touchpoints.
Food and Beverages: Continuous cleaning and disinfection of 100% of the furniture, dishes, glassware, plates, menus, supplies, etc., as well as kitchen equipment and utensils. Differentiated treatment to food contact surfaces, as well as deep cleaning and disinfection in kitchens, warehouses, as well as the rest of the back of the house.
Public areas: Continuous cleaning and disinfection of, motor lobby’s and all hotel access points, corridors, lobby’s, reception’s, gyms, swimming pools, meeting rooms, ballrooms, kids club’s, gym, ice machines, elevator cabins & buttons, handrails, luggage bells, business centers and warehouses among others among other areas.
Employees: Specialized training for our associates, as well as continuous cleaning and disinfection of dedicated areas for them such as offices, dining rooms and bathrooms, among others. Use of disinfectant gel, face masks, gloves and constant hand washing, among others be it front- or back-line associates.
We are preparing and reinventing ourselves through these actions that reflect our commitment to our clients, business partners and associates, with the determination to meet and satisfy new expectations and demands arising from these situations to make your next trips very pleasant and care free experiences.
I am honored to have an outstanding team who participated in the creation of the Stay Safe&Clean certification, which is an important new component in the responsibility we have towards our guests, shareholders, associates and general public.
