Sheraton Austin Georgetown Hotel & Conference Center receives the AAA Inspector’s Best of Housekeeping award for its cleanliness and condition, which ranked in the top 25 percent of the 27,000 AAA inspected properties.

“We are honored to receive the AAA Best of Housekeeping award,” says Rita Healy, general manager at Sheraton Austin Georgetown. “Delivering exceptional quality and service to our guests is the number one priority. The commitment and hard work of the housekeeping team at the Sheraton Austin Georgetown Hotel, under the leadership of Wes Benson, director of housekeeping, is truly commendable.”

The Best of Housekeeping award honors properties in which they see outstanding commitment from the hotel staff. AAA believes the diligence required of hotel staff to keep the property ready for AAA’s inspectors strengthens the AAA goal of driving more business to the hotel.

“This award is an acknowledgement of our dedication to quality” says Wes Benson, director of housekeeping. “We just don’t compromise our standards and make a focused effort on getting eyes into every room after is has been cleaned ensuring quality control. Our staff has the information and tools they need to keep our property immaculate on a daily basis.”

Benson has been with the Sheraton Austin Georgetown Hotel & Conference Center since its opening three years ago.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.
