McNeill Hotel Company's Hampton Inn Athens in Athens, Georgia Opens Doors and is "Ready for Guests"

New GM Evelyn Mdoumba Will Lead Property Reboot With "Hilton Cleanstay With Lysol Protection" Program

USA, Germantown, Tennessee. June 03, 2020

McNeill Hotel Company's 112-room Hampton Inn Athens in Athens, Georgia re-opened for guests on June 1. The property is located at 2220 W. Broad Street in the Athens medical district, and nearby the University of Georgia, the historic Morton Theater and the University of Georgia Performing Arts Center.

Leading the reopening of the property, which had closed in mid-March due to the pandemic, will be recently appointed General Manager Evelyn Mdoumba. Evelyn has been part of the hospitality industry for 17 years, starting as an Executive Housekeeper and eventually taking on the role of General Manager in 2010 at a Hampton Inn in Huntsville Alabama. She has since managed two other hotels.

"I want to welcome Evelyn to the McNeill Hotel Company family and extend my congratulations to her on her new role as GM of our popular Hampton Inn Athens property," said McNeill Hotel Company President & COO Mark Ricketts. "Athens is an outstanding college town and regional medical center and we are proud to belong to and contribute to this great community."

"In partnership with Hampton by Hilton," Ricketts continued, "Evelyn and the entire team at Hampton Inn Athens will remain committed to going ‘above and beyond' to insure that the hotel meets or exceeds all sanitation and cleanliness standards that have been established by Hilton."

The Hampton Inn Athens (GA) will also feature elevated processes and team member training to help Hilton guests enjoy an even cleaner and safer stay from check-in to checkout.

Developed in collaboration with RB, the maker of Lysol and Dettol, and in consultation with Mayo Clinic, this program includes the Hilton CleanStay Room Seal; "10 High-Touch, Deep Clean Areas," extra disinfection of the most frequently touched guests room areas - to include light switches, door handles, TV remotes, thermostats and more; and emphasis on Contactless Check-In, provided by Hilton's award-winning Digital Key technology, accessed on guest devices through the Hilton Honors mobile app.

This program will be integrated with McNeill Hotel Company's own enhanced cleaning protocol implemented at its 25 owned and managed properties.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Now More Than Ever

One theory about the pandemic states that future viruses are more likely to originate and flourish due to global warming. If true, the urgency to accelerate the adoption of eco-friendly practices is greater than ever. Of course, there are many other reasons to create a sustainable operation, including reduced utility costs, savings on operational costs, healthier and happier guests and employees, and positive publicity, marketing and community goodwill. Many hotels are introducing innovative programs into their operations - from recycling bins in guest rooms to starting a roof top garden. Other hotels are using eco-friendly cleaning products, reusing towels and sheets, sourcing locally grown food, supporting the use of electric vehicles, and permitting guests to refill their reusable water bottles with clean, filtered water. Finally, some hotels are encouraging guests to get involved by making it possible for them to participate in local community clean-up projects. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
