All our team members have received extensive training on safety protocols, including proper use of personal protective equipment (PPE), proper social distancing, and proper procedures to follow should they feel symptoms or believe they have encountered someone that was infected.
Face coverings and proper social distancing practices are required for all team members at all times when in any public areas of the hotel, including both front and back of house. Gloves and other forms of personal protective equipment (PPE) may be required as appropriate, depending on the nature of the team member’s function.

Public areas are cleaned and sanitized on an increased frequency. Certain high contact touch points such as elevator buttons and door handles are cleaned hourly.
Hand sanitizer has been placed in convenient locations throughout the hotel’s public areas.

Food and Beverage
We are seeing with our own eyes that in a time of crisis, people naturally want to help and serve. We are playing witness to some of our own team members giving back to the communities where we are built as well as to our own associates. Chef Emily Hill of the Water Trough at Lone Star Court made over 100 meat & cheese sandwiches with other accompaniments to feed the homeless in downtown Austin after being inspired by her Pastor’s message.
