Windsor Court Hotel in New Orleans is proud to announce that it is among the first hotels in the world, including the very first in New Orleans and Louisiana, to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide. The comprehensive facility verification helps ensure that guests and travel planners can book with confidence at properties that have appropriate health safety procedures in place.
This verification comes with an easily identifiable “seal of approval” – the Sharecare VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide badge – based on a hotel’s compliance with expert-validated best practices that minimize the risk and impact of COVID-19, and potential future public health events.
“The Windsor Court Hotel has maintained the highest standards of cleanliness and disinfection since the pandemic started,” said General Manager Ralph Mahana. “Our team has made every adaptation necessary to provide the safest experience for our customers and associates, with a goal of enhancing the customer experience, rather than diminishing it. Achieving this certification by one of the most trusted authorities in luxury travel, in partnership with the preeminent leader in health security, should instill a superior level of confidence that the hotel is putting the health and safety of our guests and associates at the forefront as we continue to deliver on the level of service and overall customer experience the Windsor Court is known for.”
Developed by Forbes Travel Guide, the global authority on genuine Five-Star service, and digital health industry leader Sharecare, the comprehensive verification covers more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees. Hotels are required to verify their health protocols on an ongoing basis to ensure continued compliance with the most up-to-date global health standards.
“The pandemic has made it clear that hotels and resorts must, first and foremost, assure guests of their safety,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. "By becoming VERIFIED®, Windsor Court Hotel has demonstrated its commitment to creating a culture of accountability and following global best practices to heighten health security, certified by a third party.”
