This has been a troubling and turbulent time for everyone and we have struggled with how to address this unknown viral challenge as a family and also for our business--our customers and our employees. We were just days from ending our annual winter break (Dec-Mar) when the pandemic began. We hastily extended our break to watch our neighboring hotels to see how they were handling it and to take time to plan how to address the outbreak within our own business.
In late June 2020, NY/NJ/CT began to restrict visitors from high outbreak states to travel freely in our area. Due to the travel advisory and the quarantine restrictions, we apologize but the Roosevelt Inn will not be accepting reservations of visitors from outbreak states during this period, no matter the length of stay. The risk and cost of adding more precautions to our routine are too high for a small property such as ours. As each state comes off the list, accommodations will be available for those visitors once more.
If you are a local healthcare professional or first responder from our area and need a place to crash between shifts, we are open for you now. We have prepared a few rooms for those of you who need it. Call, (845)229-2443 or reserve online (Make sure you change # of persons to 1 in order to see special rate). These rooms are available now until the end of 2020. One person per room. * We are accepting donations to pay for first responder rooms (see gift card page).
The Roosevelt Inn is taking the following precautions and will continue until a vaccine is readily available:
Occupancy will be maintained at 50% capacity or less in order to maintain social distancing.
Guest room charges will be processed the day before arrival to streamline check-in.
Remote check-in will be encouraged through email and texting within 24 hours of check-in; key code will be provided in pre-arrival check-in email/text.
Length of stay will be limited to a maximum of 4-7 days.
housekeeping will not provide daily cleaning of occupied rooms
towels, toiletries, and sundries will be stocked in-room according to # of nights
laundry bags and drop-off stations for dirty towels
Coffee Shop/breakfast area will be closed and cont'l breakfast will not be offered.
Each room will be outfitted with a Keurig single-serve coffee maker and 4 k-cups per day. (Additional k-cups are available for purchase.) A breakfast snack/person will also be provided.
Upon guests' departure, we will
Make up the room and change all bed linens
Cleanse all surfaces and frequently touched areas such as doorknobs, surfaces, TV remotes, fixtures, and furniture twice with a strong virucide disinfectant
Each room will be left vacant for at least 24 hours between each guest's occupancy
As always, all laundry is done with commercial-grade machines with hot water and detergent. Drying laundry is heated to the highest temperature and tumbled dry for at least 45 minutes.
All employees will be trained following recommended procedures from our county's health department and American Hotel & Lodging Association (AH&LA) for cleaning and safety standards. We will require regular testing of staff to maintain a modicum of safety plus we are continually engaged with state and local health departments to confirm channels of communication and methods for dissemination of local outbreak information.
If you or anyone in your group would like more information or to discuss any concerns, please feel free to reach out to me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. For additional information about COVID-19, please read the latest report from the CDC at www.cdc.gov, or your local health department website.
Since this situation is still evolving and the health and safety of our guests are our top priorities, we are offering free cancellation to those with reservations in April. Reservations arriving after April 30, please follow your cancellation guidelines in your original confirmation. (Late cancellations from May onwards will be charged.)
We look forward to seeing you soon. Stay healthy!
