Staycations to enjoy one’s own region have always been popular, and as more businesses are slowly reopening, the desire for a change of scenery has probably never been stronger. Woodinville’s Willows Lodge is now open for guests, with a Road to Relaxation package and other promotions designed to fit with its new operational model focused on the health of both guests and staff — all the while maintaining its commitment to showcasing the surrounding beauty of the Northwest.
The Spa at Willows Lodge is open with some temporary suspensions on shared spaces such as the sauna, pool, and fitness area, but personal services and in-spa massages are available.
The Barking Frog’s dining area is still closed for service, but the Mobile Kitchen will be serving food and mixed beverages for guests to enjoy on their patios or outdoor seating areas with distanced tables. The Fireside Lounge is planned to reopen in late June with reduced capacity seating.
Complimentary bicycles are available to hotel guests to enjoy the nearby Burke Gilman Trail.
During its temporary shutdown, Willows Lodge has been educating its staff on additional hygiene and physical distancing procedures, as well as having the entire hotel undergo a thorough cleaning using Electrostatic Disinfecting Services, the same service that medical care facilities use to disinfect its environments. Each guest room will be cleaned in the same manner after each stay, sanitation stations are set up throughout the property, and personal protective equipment will be available for guests upon request. A detailed outline of the health and safety procedures can be found online.
