Health and Safety
Hotel Trundle

As we re-open our doors and welcome you back to Hotel Trundle, the health and safety of everyone at our hotel is our focus.

During the pause in our operations we were working toward enhanced cleaning initiatives and protocols so that you feel confident our spaces are safe and clean when staying with us. We have amplified our sanitizing protocols based on the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) Stay Safe Guidelines, Center for Disease Control and other experts who are all working to combat and beat COVID-19.

We are looking forward to a bright and positive future for post COVID-19 travel and will continue to monitor the current state of the global pandemic. In addition, we will continue to grow and improve our solutions with everyone's health and safety as our top priority.

Welcome back!

Guest room

Our enhanced cleaning initiatives include procedures to thoroughly clean all surfaces with hospital-grade disinfectants. We have provided in-room sanitizing amenities for your use.

Public spaces

Our dedicated team is cleaning high-traffic areas and high-touch surfaces with increased frequency. They are using the CDC and AHLA recommended cleaning products. 

Social distancing

Partitions have been added to our check-in areas as an extra layer of safety for our guests and team members. We also have signage to serve as a reminder to maintain social distancing.

Keep clean stations

We have placed 'Keep Clean Stations' at high-touch areas that guests come into frequent contact with. These stations have sanitizing amenities for guests to use at their comfort level.

In accordance with Ordinance No. 2020-059 facial coverings or masks are required to be worn in public spaces while in Columbia to stop the spread of COVID-19. If you need a mask, we've got you! We have masks available for our guests who find themselves needing one in Hotel Trundle.

Washing Hands

Hand washing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and others from getting sick. Wet, lather, and scrub hands for at least 20 seconds. Need a timer? Sing the "ABC's" or "Happy Birthday" song beginning to end twice. Then rinse and dry hands on a clean towel.
