Fortune Hotels, a member of ITC’s hotel group, has launched ‘Safe Stays at Fortune Hotels’, a holistic health and safety programme for guests and associates.

The brand has partnered with TQS Global Management System, a leading food safety and research firm, for CORE 19 (Covid Secure) safe practices for its properties pan India.

In the coming months, all Fortune hotels will undergo a phase-wise implementation, training and certification exercise.

The ‘Safe Stays at Fortune Hotels’ programme is set on ten key pillars — deep cleaned and sanitised rooms, safe public spaces, social distancing for hospitality, F&B hygiene and safe handling procedures, safe meetings, hygiene check stations, trained and sensitised staff members, hygiene code of conduct, emergency response protocol, no contact payments and bill settlements.

Samir MC, managing director, Fortune Park Hotels said, “The world is undergoing a vast change in the way we travel, stay and socialise. We realize that the Covid-19 outbreak will change the nature of holidaying and doing business altogether.

“This hygiene programme and certification are thus important steps forward towards re-defining our spaces and experiences thereby creating a safe, hygienic and stress-free environment for our guests.”
