To create the new initiative, Hilton has teamed up with RB, the maker of Lysol and Dettol, as well as having a consultation with the Mayo Clinic “to develop elevated processes”.
The new programme is called “Hilton Clean Stay with Lysol protection” in North America will begin in June 2020, but is yet to have a date for rolling out to the rest of the world. Hilton Clean Stay will be “a rigorous system that incorporates RB’s trusted know-how and scientific approach to cleaning practices and product offerings. Experts from Mayo Clinic’s Infection Prevention and Control team will advise and assist in enhancing Hilton’s cleaning and disinfection protocols”.
Hilton says the goal of the new programme is “to provide guests with assurance and peace of mind when they stay at any of Hilton’s more than 6,100 properties representing 18 brands. The initiative will create a focus on cleanliness that will be visible to guests throughout their entire stay – in their guest rooms, restaurants, fitness rooms and in other public spaces.”
