  • For the safety of our guests and staff, and in order to reduce direct exposure, The Ruby Hotel staff are currently only entering and cleaning unoccupied, vacant rooms. Housekeeping will only enter rooms after guests have checked out and if there is a maintenance issue during the stay, staff will assist guests with the appropriate relocation, if necessary.

  • Housekeeping staff are provided with protective gear, cleaning and disinfecting products, and tools to clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces in the rooms (a detailed checklist is followed for each room). Freshly washed & disinfected cleaning tools and cloths are used in each room. Cleaning cloths are washed daily after each use at the highest heat setting recommended by the manufacturer.
  • All rooms are ventilated for at least 20 minutes prior to housekeeping entering by opening all outside doors.
  • Staff wash their hands thoroughly before and after cleaning each room.
  • All linens are washed at the highest heat setting recommended by the manufacturer and replaced after every guest departure.

Additional linens and in-room amenities are available to guests upon request and can be delivered to your door during front desk hours of operation.
