The safety of our guests, homeowners, and staff is our number one concern. Our well-trained staff specializing in the disciplines of hospitality, housekeeping, maintenance, lodging operations, and employee wellness are closely monitoring the CDC guidelines to ensure that we are relying on the most up-to-date expert knowledge.
As a new property built to the latest environmental codes, The Lion has installed a bi-polar ionization system in all common areas of the building including the lobby, hallways, game room, fitness room, and indoor pool areas. Sanitation stations are provided at all major entry points as well as each elevator and throughout common areas.
Additionally, each residence has its own air handling system. This means the air circulated in each residence is independent of other residences and common areas of the building.

Our Approach to Cleanliness
Our in-house, professionally trained housekeeping teams are well versed in the highest standards of cleaning. Our housekeeping organization monitors industry best practices and provides ongoing training in the latest techniques to ensure the highest standard of cleanliness with products and processes that are safe.
Contactless Checkin: Guests receive a property map, unit number, codes, and other relevant information prior to arrival. This allows a seamless arrival without having to spend time at the front desk.
24-Hour Hold Between Guest Reservations: We have implemented a 24-hour hold between each guest reservation to ensure that our staff has adequate time to sanitize the residence.
Ski Valet is Operating with Enhanced Protocol: The “toboggan” skier shuttle is still providing rides to and from the base area with only one family or party at a time.
Products Effectiveness and Safety: When cleaning both common areas and residences, our housekeepers use hospital-grade cleaning products and procedures ensuring both effectiveness and safety.
Surface Areas: High-touch surfaces are being cleaned with increased frequency. These include elevator buttons and panels, door handles, remote controls or touch screens, countertops, and shared lobby spaces.
Common Areas: Sanitization stations are provided at all major entry points as well as each elevator and throughout common areas of the building. Bi-polar ionization systems have been placed in all common areas of the building. These areas include hallways, the lobby, game room, fitness, and pool areas. Our team is rearranging furniture in gathering spaces to promote social distancing between groups of travelers. Aesthetic items in our lobbies, such as decorative pillows on furniture may have gone away in favor of a cleaner environment.
Individual Units: Each residence has its own air handling system. This means that the air circulated in each residence is independent of other residences and common areas of the building. Each residence undergoes our rigorous multi-point inspection process to ensure consistency in the procedure. In our residences, you may see that throw-pillows and accent pillows have been removed. We have changed to either triple sheet or new, all-white duvet covers which will be removed and washed between each stay.
