Just in time for summer, The Wigwam is open and welcoming guests back to its 440-acre historic Litchfield Park resort near Phoenix, Arizona. As a commitment to ensure guests' and associates' health and safety, the resort has introduced new cleanliness and social distancing guidelines under The Wigwam Cares Wellness policy. Guests can also expect the resort's new SWAT (Sanitation and Wellness Awareness Team) to be a friendly and helpful resource and provide a peace of mind during their stay. The Wigwam's reopening was enabled by the "Stay Healthy, Return Smarter, Return Safer" Executive Order from the Governor of Arizona and is aligned with Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA) guidelines to ensure the safest possible experience. To help plan the next great staycation or road trip adventure, The Wigwam's Summerscapes Package invites guest to enjoy a well-deserved getaway with desired amenities and services.

Summer Fun in the Sun

The Wigwam Bar in the resort's main lodge building is serving full menus for three meals a day with late-night cocktails available to brighten evenings, and the resort is looking forward to reopening signature restaurant Litchfield's later in June. All restaurants have been reconfigured to abide by the resort's new social distancing guideline.

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
