Sanitation Practices

The Americas Cup Inn has developed sanitation protocols across the Inn & Suites, provided by local health authorities, the CDC, AHLA Safe Stay guidelines, and other governmental agencies.  The frequency of cleaning and disinfecting the Inn & Suites, with additional focus on high-touch surfaces such as the front desk, door handles, and public restrooms, has been increased to ensure a clean and safe environment for all.  These developed protocols extend to the processes within our guest rooms, dining areas, and common spaces.


Hygene & Hands, Facial Coverings

Proper and frequent hand washing remains one of the most important steps in preventing the spread of germs.  Our staff are required to properly wash their hands regularly and immediately after entering/exiting any guest rooms, common areas and other actions which would require them to do so. We have made hand sanitizer readily available throughout the Inn to assist with hand sanitation when a sink is not readily available.

Each of our employees are required to wear masks; due to governmental requirements, guests are also required to wear masks when in public spaces. Gloves will be worn by employees when preparing food or drinks; other employees throughout the Inn & Suites may also be required to wear gloves depending on duties and recommendations made by the CDC.

Health Checks

The Rhode Island Department of Health requires that we screen employees, customers, and visitors entering our establishment. People whose responses to screening questions indicate they are sick, or who show visible signs of illness must be denied entrance and instructed to isolate. Screening of customers and visitors may consist of self-screening as guided by posted signage.


Physical Distancing

Guests are advised to practice physical distancing and maintain a space of six feet apart from others, our employees will be doing the same.

The tables in our dining spaces will be configured to allow proper spacing between attendees and tables, with enhanced sanitation and social distancing protocols provided by enhanced sanitization protocols across the hotel, developed with guidance provided by local health authorities, the CDC, AHLA Safe Stay guidelines and other governmental agencies.

Guest Rooms & Suites

We have enhanced cleaning and sanitization protocols for our guest rooms to include the use of cleaning products and standards which meet recommended guidelines and are approved for use against viruses, bacteria and other airborne and blood borne pathogens and with particular attention to high-touch items and surfaces within the room.



The city, state, and federal health and safety measures we’ve adopted mean that some of the regular services and amenities we normally provide may differ from what you’ve experienced in the past or is communicated on our website.
