Throughout the COVID pandemic, you’ve heard a lot about about our Stay Safe with Sonesta program. As we continue working to keep our guests and staff safe and increase our efforts as more people return to traveling, we are excited to share that we’ve joined a partnership that will allow our 250+ managed hotels in North America to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide.

Developed in response to the impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality industry, Sharecare health security verification with Forbes Travel Guide enables hotels to monitor their protocols and earn a VERIFIED™ health security badge. As of today we can share that we are in the process of earning those badges.

What does becoming Sharecare VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide mean entail?

Hotels earn the Sharecare VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide badge by completing – and maintaining – verification on more than 360 global health security standards. The comprehensive assessment covers:

  • Health and hygiene protocols
  • Cleaning products and procedures
  • Masks and PPE
  • Ventilation
  • Management accountability
  • Health safety communication with guests and employees
  • Health security verification gives you the peace of mind that each hotel is committed to expert-validated best practices for your safety and comfort. More hotels are becoming VERIFIED™ daily.

Watch this space for more information as we complete our verifications in time for the busy summer travel season. When our verifications are completed, Sonesta will be the first hotel company to receive the designation portfolio-wide.
