SHERATON GRAND RIO – MEASURES AGAINST COVID 19

HAVAS ON SITE
(by Candida Aquistapace)

Today I was at Gran Sheraton Rio de Janeiro to check about the hygiene protocols adopted for the reopening.

The hotel is one of the most traditional in Rio de Janeiro and the only hotel in the city with direct access to the beach, almost an urban resort. 

The hotel is an excellent option for families, it has a great leisure area.

It is excellent for Incentive groups because it has good parking area and a great number of rooms with sea view, besides being ideal for Congresses and Events as it has excellent infrastructure.

As soon as I arrived, I could notice that the beautiful decoration of the lobby and reception remain the same, but now I noted signs about the use of masks and social distance everywhere.

At the entrance of the hotel we saw a totem for hand sanitizing with alcohol gel, in addition to the carpet sanitizer.

The check in and concierge desks now have acrylic barriers and employees are wearing masks.

The reception has a machine that sanitizes the keys and pens for signing the check in.

Although it has 6 elevators, only 2 people or 1 family are allowed at each time.

All the elevators have alcohol gel available.

The rooms remain spacious and with sea view. An important detail is that all rooms have balcony , so it is possible keep the them fresh without using air conditioning. What no longer exist are the items at desk like stationery or books and items in the minibar. If necessary , such items must be requested by QR Code, as well as room service.

The only items that remain are the coffee machine items that are now recyclable, the bathroom items are changed at each lodging and the remote control is enveloped.

Now,  breakfast is at Casarão restaurant that increased the number of its outdoor tables. Nothing better than to start the day looking at the sea and the green area.

The buffet remains the same, but now the hotel employees serve the food.

The pool area is open but with reduced  number of chair lounges in order to create social distance between guests.

The gym center has also reopened as well as the SPA with scheduling and with all spacing control, sanitizing towels or alcohol gel.

Whether for leisure or for business, our clients will have a safe time at the Sheraton Gran Resort Rio de Janeiro.
