A Silver Lake Hotel Stay: Technology, deep cleaning and no mini-bar

For those venturing out for a holiday, some elements of an overnight stay will seem the same – but other aspects will be noticeable, says Kirsten Leigh Pratt of boutique hotel Silver Lake Pool & Inn.

Overall, technology has played a big role in the new rollout. Touch tablets in rooms take the place of all necessary room information and transactions, such as ordering mini-bar beverages and snacks.

Housekeepers use the Protexus electrostatic spraying system that uses an EPA-approved product effective against COVID-19 in 1 minute; the process also makes sanitizing quicker for staff. Guests can ask for additional treatments during their stay as daily housekeeping is by request only.
