Hilton CleanStay

We’ve taken additional measures beyond our industry-leading cleaning standards by partnering with Reckitt, maker of Lysol & Dettol, to develop our Hilton CleanStay program. This innovative program builds upon our already rigorous cleaning standards by providing enhanced training for Team Members and increased cleaning of public areas to ensure you enjoy a worry-free stay.

Public Areas & Amenities

We’re committed to protecting your wellbeing while using our public spaces. Guests will find disinfecting stations with wipes available at many properties. Additionally, both public and Team Member areas are cleaned with approved commercial-grade products at scheduled intervals, including high-touch areas like elevators and bathrooms.
