Welcoming you in a Post-COVID-19 Environment The health and safety of our Conrad New York Downtown guests and team members is our highest priority. We have developed this guide to provide transparency for our guests in an effort to ensure your comfort during your stay. This guide outlines how we have implemented new safety standards and procedures in conjunction with Hilton CleanStay. Hilton CleanStay, a program that has been executed across the world, will deliver an industry-defining standard of cleanliness and disinfection. Hilton has collaborated with RB, maker of Lysol and Dettol, to develop elevated processes and Team Member training to help guests enjoy an even cleaner and safer stay from check-in to check-out. As we move forward, we will continue to monitor guidelines from the New York State Department of Public Health, CDC and WHO, government policy and mandates, and other public health innovations to revise these procedures.
