HONOURING THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR VALUED GUESTS AND TEAM MEMBERS
As a means of honoring the recommended practice of social distancing throughout your stay; we at Premiere Suites, have temporarily suspended our in-stay, bi-weekly housekeeping services.
Please note that the entirety of your suite and its contents has been professionally cleaned and sanitized, prior to your arrival.
Due to the confirmed findings of a recent study conducted by the New England Journal of Medicine surrounding the surface stability of coronavirus (COVID-19), our cleaning and sanitation team will not be entering previously occupied suites until a period of 96-hours* (4 days) has expired from the time of the guest departure.
After the period of 96-hours* has elapsed our professional teams will enter the suite to conduct their complete cleaning and sanitization process. This process ensures both the health and safety of our valued team members, and those of our incoming guests.
Should your preferred suite not meet the 96-hour* time requirement at the time of your arrival, we will ask that you reside temporarily in an approved sanitized suite, until that time that your desired suite is deemed effectively cleaned and sanitized.
We do apologize for any inconvenience these temporary measures may impose and thank you sincerely for your support of the health of our guests, and team members throughout this uncertain time.
*Please note that the indicated duration may evolve in response to new and verified information.
REDUCED ACCESS TO BUILDING AMENITIES
As our building communities look to honour the health and safety or their residents, you may find limited access or a temporary cessation of access to common building areas such as; gyms, pools, saunas, games rooms, shared workspaces, party rooms, etc. These decisions are being made by the respective building management teams and condo boards.
