Seattle, WA (February 12, 2021) — LOTTE HOTEL SEATTLE is proud to announce that it is among the first hotels in the world as well as the first in Seattle 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.
“We are thrilled to announce our designation to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED® with Forbes Travel Guide as one of the first in the industry to do so,” said Victor Caguindagan, General Manager of LOTTE HOTEL SEATTLE. “Our dedicated team has worked diligently to put wellbeing at the forefront of all we do and deliver a safety-oriented experience for locals and visitors alike. We cannot wait to continue serving our guests and the Seattle community.”
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®, LOTTE HOTEL SEATTLE has demonstrated its commitment to creating a culture of accountability and following global best practices to heighten health security, certified by a third party.”
“Congratulations to LOTTE HOTEL SEATTLE for being the first hotel in Seattle to earn the Sharecare VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide badge,” Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide continued. “It’s impressive that the brand-new hotel made health security a priority and leads the market in hygiene and safety practices.”
