The health, safety and well-being of our staff, guests, owners and partners remains our top priority as the world goes through this unprecedented crisis. Accor has been prioritizing the safety of its guests on a daily basis for more than 50 years, thanks to our high standards of hygiene and cleanliness applied by all our brands around the world. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic and to ensure the safety of our clients and employees as hotels reopen, we have elevated those norms even further by launching a unique cleanliness and prevention label: ALLSAFE.”
