We are following government guidelines & industry best practices
To our guests, those planning a stay in Annapolis, and our friends:
We have been working hard to ensure the safety of our guests and ourselves. We would like to share what we are doing to keep you safe while visiting our property. We are a small, family owned business, we live on site and we have always been very meticulous about the cleaning and disinfecting of our home, guest rooms and common areas. You can read our guest comments in Trip Advisor & Google
We have received overwhelmingly positive reviews for over a year since we implemented new guidelines.
We consult many resources such as CDC, OSHA, Lodging & Restaurant association guidelines and best practices from other small lodging establishments. We are signatories of the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) “Safe Stay” guidelines. in addition we are closely monitoring and following national, state and local advisories.
On this page we are sharing many of our procedures so that, along with your own safe practices, we can continue to avoid the virus and have a restful and fun stay at the Flag House Inn, and around Annapolis.
We only use washable bedding, everything goes through the laundry in between every guest stay.
Plastic covers on remotes, Room “decluttered”, all high touch surfaces (doorknobs, light switches, table tops, blinds, lamps, keys, etc) wiped down every day. Digital guest communications and resources including our texting app.
Air purifiers in each room and larger units in common areas. These are advanced models, with 3 or 4 stage true HEPA filtration, the highest standard for air cleaning. They change the air 4-5x per hour. We run these continuously in guest rooms and the dining room. We open the windows as often as possible too! These efforts are intended to remove viruses, bacteria & allergens.
Rooms are locked after cleaning & disinfecting is completed
Disinfectant products used on hard surfaces
All fixtures (sink, shower, toilet, etc) cleaned and disinfected, all high touch surfaces wiped down
Wash your hands! Liquid soap at sink, Bar soap & pump dispensers for shower, disposable drinking cups. Consider bringing a refillable water bottle
We continue to personally prepare and serve our hot cooked breakfast for which we are well known. We continue to maintain distanced seating by group and optional early/late seatings. Further distant seating possible in our sitting room. To-go continental breakfast bags available also with advance notice (as always).
When we have 6 or more guests, we will have 2 seatings for breakfasts and will ask guests to choose 830a or 915a via our texting app.
We follow restaurant guidelines/best practices from authorities and industry.
We are regularly inspected by Anne Arundel County Dept of Health and we have been trained by National Restaurant Association “Serv-Safe” training
Guest hand washing immediately before and after seating is highly recommended.
We include our advisories and expectations in our guest communications (terms & conditions, reservation confirmations & reminders)
