"The COVID-19 pandemic has heightened people's awareness of the spread of germs and the need for increased sanitization," said Alison Casler, chief human resources officer of Drury Hotels. "Our Travel Happy® Again, Clean + Safe initiatives, solidified by our partnership with Ecolab, have allowed us to confidently deliver a higher level of cleanliness and safety for our guests and team members."

In addition to partnering with Ecolab, Drury has updated its check-in procedure to reduce contact, implemented visual cues for social distancing and modified the service for its free hot breakfast and evening reception. Drury has continued to serve the communities where the company has hotels by keeping all of its hotels open to provide lodging to traditional guests as well as to first responders and essential frontline workers.

"For more than 45 years, Drury Hotels has focused on providing clean rooms and exceptional service," said Chuck Drury, president and CEO of Drury Hotels. "This is particularly important today as we adjust to living with COVID-19. The enhancements being made throughout our hotels will help ensure a clean, safe environment, so our guests can feel comfortable and confident while staying with us."
