Your Safety in Mind
Please know that our top priority remains the safety, care and wellbeing of our Fairmont Century Plaza guests. Welcoming, safeguarding and taking care of others is at the very heart of what we do and who we are. At this moment, this means keeping our guests and colleagues safe by preventing the spread of COVID-19 – partnering with top experts to implement new standards of safety and enhanced operational protocols and procedures which are among the most stringent in the hospitality industry.
The new operational standards being implemented at Fairmont Century Plaza and at Accor properties across North & Central America were developed and vetted by a team of expert advisors to ensure maximum efficacy in preventing the spread of all viruses and pathogens, including COVID-19, with oversight by Bureau Veritas, a world leader in testing, inspections and certification; Dr. Amesh Adalja, Senior Scholar at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security & fellow with the Infectious Diseases Society of America; and Ruth Petran, Ph.D., CFS, Senior Corporate Scientist, Food Safety and Public Health, for Ecolab, global leaders in cleaning and hygiene, and trusted advisors to the CDC.

Guests will see ALL Safe and Well signage and digital communications visible throughout the property encouraging social distancing, hand washing and use of sanitizer. Social distancing is encouraged with floor decals to assist in guiding guests to engage in best practices for the protection of themselves and others. Our public area attendants frequently clean high traffic areas and disinfect high touch points with recommended cleaning agents.
ROOMS & Suites
Our dedicated housekeeping team at Fairmont Century Plaza will go beyond the standards of rooms and suites preparation, deep cleaning surfaces with use of EPA-registered disinfectant chemicals proven effective in preventing the transmission of COVID-19.
Meetings & Events
Our meetings and event team will collaborate with planners to re-imagine their meetings with new meeting sets, food service protocols and entertainment/team building options that enable social distancing and reduce the number of guests touching surfaces and equipment. Heightened cleanliness standards will be in place within our meeting space and our colleagues will be cleaning areas more frequently during meeting sessions and event breaks. Our staff will be provided the appropriate personal protective equipment, such as masks to keep your attendees and our colleagues safe.
Colleague Training & Safety
Our colleagues will each receive COVID-19 related training and retooling with guidance and reminders to: Stay home if not well, wash hands repeatedly and thoroughly, wear masks while at work and follow all safety protocols for their particular responsibilities and guest interactions. All colleagues will participate in mandatory health screenings which include temperature checks upon entrance to the hotel. It’s important to us that both our guests and our colleagues are safe and well.
