Desperate to get away, vacationers are turning to camping in order to avoid other people and the risk of catching the coronavirus. However, there are other options available for a luxury stay with all the comforts of home. With no face-to-face interaction required at these Virginia accommodations, guests can minimise the health risks and focus instead on their vacation getaway.
A new luxury boutique property in Fredericksburg, Virginia is leading the way in stress-free hotel stays, offering guests the comfort of a first-class experience combined with the ease of automated check-in and check-out. The Silver Collection Hotel is designed to offer travellers a unique experience that is more residential than hotel. The 24 all-suitesoffer a feeling of being in a full apartment rather than a simple hotel room. Every suite is self-contained with a fully equipped kitchen, living room, in-suite laundry facilities and a private balcony. SCH also offers luxury amenities, from daily complimentary continental breakfast to an adjacent 16,000 square-foot clubhouse. The cleaning and safety protocols are top-notch, utilising the OmniShield™ Surface Protection Program. SCH is conveniently located in the heart of Fredericksburg, with access to one of America’s most authentic, historic downtown districts.
The Townsman in Charlottesville also provides contactless comfort and safety. Referring to themselves as the unhotel, the four-room boutique property has no front desk and no staff onsite. Once booked, guests are provided with a personal code that grants access to the hotel and guest room. Located right on Charlottesville’s historic downtown walking mall, guests also have easy access to the many attractions the city offers.
Hilton Hotels, headquartered in Virginia, offer contactless accommodations through their new CleanStay program. The company has partnered with the makers of Lysol® & Dettol® to help ensure a safe environment for complete peace of mind. Contactless check-in is available through the Hilton Honors app, making your cell phone your ‘key’ to limited interaction during your stay, including at The Embassy Suites by Hilton Alexandria – Old Town and Hilton McLean Tysons Corner.
If travellers are looking for more secluded accommodations, Virginia offers numerous B&Bs and specialty lodging featuring contactless stays. Just west of Winchester, VA, Pembroke Springs is located on 175 acres of natural forest. Featuring two large Japanese baths (ofuros), the entire inn has a Japanese theme. To address coronavirus concerns, the property is taking only one group booking at a time and each stay includes all meals and a personal chef.
With a wealth of contactless accommodations, like those outlined above, a vacation to Virginia offers travellers everything they need for a worry-free getaway.
