Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

We always recommend you follow local guidelines, health officials, and stay-at-home or other travel restrictions. Within these parameters, it is worth noting that our guests stay an average of 90 days. This means that where a hotel is seeing constant traffic of different people entering and exiting a room, our apartments see one guest for a long period of time. After a guest leaves, we then leave additional time to clean and thoroughly sanitize the entire space well before the next guest is scheduled to arrive.

Hyatus apartments have always received stellar reviews for our stringent cleaning standards. While we continue to maintain the highest standards, including a detailed check-list with more than 100 cleaning routines and guidelines, we have further supplemented this routing with protocols that not only follow CDC guidelines for limiting the transmission of coronavirus, but go above and beyond with a hospital-grade sanitization routine.
