ABERDEEN, S.D. (May, 18, 2020) – In continuation of the brand’s ongoing initiative to provide its guests with the safest and cleanest lodging experience possible, My Place Hotels of America is pleased to announce it will take its hotel cleanliness efforts a step further by instituting an enhanced range of hotel cleanliness processes and procedures alongside its operators, franchising partners, Ecolab, and the American Hotel & Lodging Association.
Today My Place Hotels announced the development of its new initiative, ALWAYS CLEAN, a program designed to exceed the evolving demands of today’s travelers. While guests have experienced a variety of enhancements made in accordance with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines, the company is rolling out additional measures at all 55 My Place Hotel locations.
As a new chain founded on the timeless principles of delivering a clean, comfortable, and friendly experience, the company is well-equipped to support owners and operators as consumer expectations evolve. In preparing each hotel for an educated recovery, the enhanced measures are part of a multi-faceted plan to ensure they are appropriately positioned for the road ahead.
My Place Hotels President and CEO Ryan Rivett believes the new program is a principled demonstration of the company’s founding values applied.
“Grounded in the fundamentals of hospitality, My Place has maintained a remarkable sense of comfort and consistency through rigorous quality and cleanliness standards,” said Rivett. “With 100% of the chain operating in 55 communities across the United States, it remains our highest priority to ensure hotel associates and guests are exceedingly confident in the safety and security standards and practices at each hotel. Through our Always Clean initiative, we hope to instill an even greater sense of comfort and confidence in our brand as we navigate the road ahead.”

“I am pleased to represent our owners and operators while serving as the united voice of the My Place family on the AHLA Safe Stay Advisory Council,” said Dinger. “While safety and security have long served as the basis for the important decisions we make at My Place, there has never been a more important time to unite with our fellow industry leaders as we work to inform change and ensure travelers around the world feel safe enough to return to hotels for their future adventures.”
