Check-in: Getting into a Clean, Fast and Smart world of hotels

Hotel room

The time to travel freely within Asia might come sooner than we think. From bilateral air travel bubbles between Singapore and Hong Kong to exemption of 14-day quarantine restrictions for all business travellers into Japan, the recent spate of positive developments from government bodies in Asia bodes well for the business travel engine.

We believe it’s imperative to help corporate travellers to get back on the road faster. And we are committed to doing this with our partners without compromising the health and safety of individual travellers.

Unsurprisingly, hygiene and sanitation will be top priority for travellers in the new normal. That is why we insist on working with partners like Hilton who can move swiftly and support our customers in getting them safely back on the road. This 101-year old legacy brand has ticked all the boxes in delivering an industry-defining standard of cleanliness & disinfection through the Hilton CleanStay Programme. The goal? To provide guests with assurance and complete peace of mind, as Duty of Care remains as the top priority to all our customers.  

Now we can finally make use of our mobiles to do room check-ins instead of just using it to call our loved ones.

Some like it Hot, but many like it Clean

With travel looking a little different these days, Hilton understands the need to meet evolving consumer expectations during the Covid-19 pandemic. 

Introduced in June, Hilton CleanStay is a rigorous system created in partnership with RB (maker of Lysol & Dettol) and Mayo Clinic. The programme incorporates RB’s trusted know-how and scientific approach to cleaning practices and product offerings with Mayo Clinic’s expertise on cleaning and disinfection protocols.

Implemented throughout Hilton’s 6,200 properties worldwide, the Hilton CleanStay programme is built upon the brand’s existing high standards of housekeeping and hygiene, where hospital-grade cleaning products and upgraded protocols are currently in use. 

Maybe it’s time to learn a trick or two from these masters in cleaning and sanitation.

Have Gold, Will Fast Track

Hotel loyalty programmes are popular among business travellers pre or post-pandemic, with many of them admitting that benefits, recognition and the belonging to a community are important criteria when deciding which hotel to book for business travel.

Now that air travel bubbles are slowly emerging, business travellers will be looking forward to accelerating that growth in status in the fastest way possible after a long hiatus in travel mobility. FCM and Hilton Honors Fast Track programme allows guests to achieve gold status only after eight nights within 90 days of registration in any of Hilton’s 6,200 properties worldwide.  

Special bonus for FCM Travellers from now until 31 December 2020
