SINGAPORE – Hilton has reopened doors across all its hotels in mainland China.

The company is working with US-based Mayo Clinic and RB, the manufacturer of disinfectant produces Lysol and Dettol, to launch an “industry-defining standard of cleanliness and disinfection” across Hilton properties worldwide

“The safety and well-being of our guests and team members remain our highest priority and reopening all our hotels in the Chinese Mainland is the first step in a measured global recovery process,” said Chris Nassetta, president and CEO, Hilton.

The group currently has 255 hotels in operation in the Greater China region and more than 500 hotels in development.

“Following a challenging few months…we are seeing demand gradually return to China starting with domestic travel, and green shoots of recovery across the wider region as countries begin to ease restrictions,” noted Alan Watts, president, Asia Pacific, Hilton.

Safety and cleanliness is a key priority as the group resumes business. In April, Hilton unveiled a new health and safety initiative, Hilton CleanStay.

The company is working with US-based Mayo Clinic and RB, the manufacturer of disinfectant produces Lysol and Dettol, to launch an “industry-defining standard of cleanliness and disinfection” across Hilton properties worldwide.

The Hilton CleanStay initiative is expected to launch in June, and will be visible to guests throughout their stay to provide them with assurance and peace of mind at all of Hilton’s hotel brands.
