As we have always been guided by the provision of high-level hospi-tality services, with our guests as our focal point, we have moved on to the initiation of robust protocols, which will allow us to offer our visitors the highest feeling of safety. These guidelines are completely in tune with in-structions from governmental bodies, as well as Accor’s policy.
