COVID-19 PRECAUTIONS
Nothing is more important to us than the health and safety of our communities. We are monitoring the situation very closely, and we would like to share the additional precautions that have been recently added. All amenities at this property have been closed. We have increased our cleaning standards, specifically as it relates to cleaning and disinfecting surfaces. This is all very necessary for the safety of guests, and we must do our part to keep this community safe.

At Frontdesk, a core value is to be a good neighbor. We extend this 5-star stay to you, our guests, as well as our property partners. This means we have a zero-tolerance policy for parties or gatherings. To ensure this in the most comfortable and least intrusive way possible, we use a noise sensor to detect the noise level inside of the suite. The number of people inside the suite may not exceed the reserved guest amount at any time. While we do not anticipate the need, following multiple warnings, we will utilize local law enforcement to ensure compliance. If removal is required, it will be done at the guest's expense. Thank you for respecting the community and our commitment to be a good neighbor.

House Rules:
Help us be a good neighbor by respecting and following our house rules.
Please be aware that while rare, violation of house rules is grounds for removal at the guest’s expense. If you have questions about our house rules, do not hesitate to reach out by tapping the Scout button on the right.

Quiet Hours
9pm-7am, daily. As with most communities, please keep music, movies, or other noise to a conversational level during the quiet hours.

Noise Monitoring
To ensure we’re being good neighbors, this suite is equipped with a noise sensor that measures decibels. There is no recording of audio, the device is active 24/7 and is located in the living area. If the noise exceeds a reasonable level, our Trust and Safety team will receive a notification and message you. To comply with community regulations, if the noise sensor becomes disconnected we will notify you if we need access to your stay to reconnect it.

We’re here for you
Please do not contact building staff. While our property partners know you’re staying with us, they will be unable to help with questions or concerns. For anything at all, tap the pink icon in the bottom right to talk to a live Frontdesk specialist.

Parties are Not Allowed
Disturbing other residents in this building will not be tolerated. While a rare occurrence, following warnings from your host triggered by the noise sensor or a complaint from a neighbor, you may be asked to leave at your own expense. Local law enforcement will be utilized if necessary.
