Hilton Tallinn Park hotel – CleanStay

The Hilton hotel chain created its Cleanstay programme in cooperation with RB, the producer of well-known cleaning brands such as Lysol and Dettol. All public surfaces are constantly disinfected in all Hilton hotels around the world. In addition, all rooms are disinfected twice – once with hospital-grade disinfectants and afterwards with RB products. After cleaning, a CleanStay seal is placed on the door to assure the room has been thoroughly disinfected and that nobody has entered the disinfected room before the guest.
