Hotels & Resorts Going Above and Beyond

Lodging Safely

From new check-in procedures to super-thorough sanitation protocols, St. Pete/Clearwater's hotels and resorts are stepping up their game. 

Wyndham Grand

Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach

This beautiful property located on one of the best stretches of beach in America is doing things right to keep guests and staff safe. Here's what you can expect: 

 

  • All staff members will take part in COVID-19 safety/sanitation protocol training, and they'll follow personal protective equipment (PPE) recommendations from the CDC.
  • Staff members will be busy cleaning and disinfecting public spaces at the resort multiple times per day, with special emphasis on high-touch/high-traffic areas such as elevator buttons/panels.
  • Yes, you can order a delicious meal from room service - but expect new, no-contact delivery.
  • You can still relax poolside, just with more space around you (six feet, to be exact, between groups of guests).
  • You'll find hand sanitizers at key guest and employee entrances and contact areas, including lobby and reception areas, pools, exercise areas, restaurant entrances and more.

The Bilmar Hotel

Bilmar Beach Resort

Visitors love The Bilmar on Treasure Island for its white sand beachfront and friendly staff. Pair that with the resort's new safety protocols, and it's a winning combination for travel in the time of COVID-19. Here's what to expect: 

 

  • Lots of disinfecting - especially hard surfaces in public spaces, such as elevator buttons, door handles, stair banisters, pens and credit card processors. Add to that pool loungers, recreational equipment and room keys. 
  • Housekeeping will be limited to towel replacement and trash removal to reduce staff time in guests' rooms, but room amenities can be replenished upon your request.
  • Guest rooms will undergo deep cleaning between stays, including disinfection of all high-touch areas.
  • Behind the scenes at the Bilmar (known as the "heart of the house" in hotel employees' lingo), deep cleaning will be taking place as well, to reduce risk to team members and ultimately, to guests.

But now, there’s even more reason to choose them for your next stay - they’ve put together an incredibly thorough safety program. Here are the highlights:
