Boston Harbor Hotel Teams with Bureau Veritas to Ensure Hygiene Excellence at Five-Star Luxury Hotel

Bureau Veritas, a world leader in testing, inspection and certification services today announced its partnership with Boston Harbor Hotel on the SafeGuard™ Hygiene Excellence Program, a safety and hygiene program designed to support the operational restart activities of the hospitality industry. Boston Harbor Hotel is Boston's only waterfront Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond hotel with 232 guest rooms and a full-service 34-slip marina.

Hotels are operating in a new normal and facing ever-evolving safety and hygiene mandates. By partnering with Bureau Veritas—and earning the Bureau Veritas SafeGuard™ Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label—Boston Harbor Hotel can ensure that their hotel remains compliant, and the safety protocols have been audited by a trusted third party, while continually managing future risk.

Stephen Johnston, Managing Director and General Manager, Boston Harbor Hotel, commented:

"Boston Harbor Hotel's highest priority remains the health and safety of our associates, guests, neighbors, family and friends. Collaborating with Bureau Veritas, we have leveraged the SafeGuard™ Hygiene Excellence Label and established our Enhanced Health and Safety Guidelines that ensure we consistently meet the most stringent hygiene and safety standards across our property. We are excited to safely welcome our guests back to the Boston Harbor Hotel."

As an independent third-party partner to Boston Harbor Hotel, Bureau Veritas has:

  • Collaborated on detailed safety protocols to mitigate and prevent virus spread risk
  • Completed a hotel audit to ensure all hygiene protocols and operational requirements have been implemented 
  • Supported Boston Hotel with the voluntary application to earn Bureau Veritas' Safe Guard Hygiene Excellence and Safety Label which demonstrates that the Boston Hotel is in compliance with the recommended guidelines and protocols

Sherry Orel, President of Certification, Audit and Assurances for Bureau Veritas North America, commented:

"Safety is the new luxury for travelers and our partnership with the Boston Harbor Hotel marks an important milestone in the restart of the hospitality industry across the US. We are so proud that hospitality industry leaders like Boston Harbor Hotel are going above and beyond to protect their employees and guests, and turning to Bureau Veritas as a global authority on safety."
