Choice Hotels Brand Update

The Commitment to Clean Captain training deadline is two months passed. Please make every effort to have a member of your staff who will be responsible for overseeing your property’s cleanliness efforts complete this training and certification as quickly as possible to avoid potential penalties or fines.

Choice Hotels has been actively promoting this Commitment to Clean status to both the general public and its array of corporate business sales, much of which benefits our Econo Lodge brand. Please ensure that your property is taking the necessary steps to comply with this critical program, as the message is going over very favorably with guests and potential guests.

Please follow this link to the Choice Commitment to Clean Hub to access the training module. You must have an active Choice University student account, and be logged in to that account, to access and complete the training module.

Please continue to visit Choice Central and elfa.org for regular updates and access to industry resources.

The Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA), the largest hotel advocacy group in the US, is providing resources and information to assist all hoteliers, whether you are a member of AAHOA or not.

Please visit the AAHOA Covid-19 Resource Center for industry updates and access to live and ongoing webcasts and other resources.

AAHOA has helpful industry webcasts scheduled almost daily. Please visit their Resource Page for registration links to upcoming Webcasts and for access to view past webcasts.

ELFA has worked closely with AAHOA on industry and franchise issues throughout the years, and we will continue to work closely with and rely on them for their knowledge and expertise as we head further into uncharted waters, and share resources with our members as they become available.
