Palladium Hotel Group Responds to New CDC Travel Guidelines by Providing On-Site Covid-19 Tests for US and Canadian Travelers

Palladium Hotel Group Offers Free Antigen Covid-19 Rapid Test for US Travelers

Spain, Madrid . January 20, 2021

In an effort to comply with newly-implemented CDC travel guidelines, Palladium Hotel Group is now providing on-property COVID-19 tests for all guests traveling to the United States and Canada. Antigen COVID-19 rapid testing is available free of charge for guests traveling back to the United States (until April 4, 2021), and PCR COVID-19 testing is available for guests traveling to Canada.

COVID-19 testing is available at all Palladium Hotel Group properties in Mexico, the Dominican Republic and Jamaica, including its Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts and TRS Hotels brands. Testing is available in the mornings, before noon, at the resorts' on-site medical centers with results available by the evening if taken on a weekday or results available on Monday if taken during the weekend.

It is recommended that guests schedule appointments to test upon arrival on property. Resort staff will coordinate with guests to accommodate the appointments. Guests must take into consideration their home country's specific requirements; in the case of the United States and Canada, for instance, the airlines require COVID-19 tests to be taken no more than 72 hours prior to the traveler's scheduled departure.

The PCR COVID-19 test is available to guests traveling to Canada with costs ranging between $177-$443 CAD.

"Palladium Hotel Group is proud to add on-site testing to the list of the industry-leading initiatives developed to help combat the spread of COVID-19 as well as efforts made to boost travel confidence," said Pilar Arizmendi-Stewart, VP of Sales and Marketing for the Americas at Palladium Hotel Group. "Our properties across the Caribbean and Mexico continue to attract guests looking for the perfect luxury getaway, and we look forward to providing them with the ultimate Palladium experience while placing health and safety as the top priority," she added.

In addition to testing, Palladium Hotel Group continues to ensure a worry-free and safe travel experience for all guests with the complimentary medical insurance, Stay Safe Plus, which protects guests against any unforeseen circumstances as a result of the current health emergency. Palladium Hotel Group's health and safety protocols are certified by SGS, the world's leading inspection, verification, testing, and certification services company.

Revenue Management: Monetizing All Offerings


Of all the departments within hotel operations, Revenue Management may have been the hardest hit, due to the pandemic. The logic goes - no revenue, no need for revenue managers - so many industry professionals were furloughed. If business rebounds in 2021, as expected, then hotel management will have to determine when prevailing occupancy levels justify bringing back their revenue management team. Also, the pandemic seems to have exposed some weaknesses in the traditional RevPAR models. There is a growing understanding that it is no longer sufficient to use a "revenue per available room" model; instead, hotels are adopting a TRevPAR model (total revenue per available room). This model recognizes that revenue streams from other departments are just as important as the revenue gained from rooms. As a result, hotels are looking at ways to monetize any and all hotel offerings - from dining outlets and spas to outdoor function spaces and local partnerships. The October issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine these developments and report on how some leading hotels are executing their revenue management strategies.
