Did you know hotels keep statistics and know how many of their employees are vaccinated? Until recently it never even occurred to me a hotel would know this, but of course it makes sense they would.
Hotels, usually the Human Resources Department, ask employees to do a self-attestation process for their vaccination status.
When we look at hotels and compare one against another to see where we’d prefer staying, we use certain criteria. We compare price, location, services, amenities, and then make our choice. Recently, I’ve started adding another criteria. I’m wondering if my newest criteria would make a difference when YOU make a hotel choice.
I’ve been asking hotels what percentage of their employees are vaccinated, and my inquiries are leading to some rather interesting answers.
I’ve also discovered that when hotels send reports to their corporate headquarters, these reports include statistics about how many employees are vaccinated.
Knowing hotels do indeed keep this statistic, for the past few weeks I’ve been asking hotel management at hotels I’m considering (both in the US and overseas) to share this information with me.
Here’s what I’m finding.
When hotels have a high rate of vaccination they are willing and proud to share this information. I like this transparency.
Yet there are hotels, such as the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine in San Diego, that just won’t give me an answer. Both the General Manager and HR Director assert that they won’t disclose the information because employees are not required to be vaccinated. I was also told by the HR Director that they don’t have the percentage of how many employees are vaccinated because over the past few months they have a lot of new employees.
We know employees are not required to be vaccinated. That’s not the point.
Replies like this one from the Hyatt Regency La Jolla compared to the easily obtained statistic from other hotels make me suspicious and have me thinking there’s something to hide.
I’m not asking for names or any personal information. Just a simple statistic that I KNOW they know!
After all, hotels want us to feel safe and well-cared for. They’ve demonstrated this over the past few years with their cleanliness and safe COVID protocol policies. For many, knowing how many employees at a hotel are vaccinated might add to feeling safer.
Would you care to know the percentage of employees vaccinated when you make your hotel choice?
We’ve all noticed these days that hotels are charging more and offering less, which means we need to think more carefully about which properties get our business. I’m adding knowing whether the hotel’s employees are vaccinated or not when I choose one hotel over another. If knowing employee vaccination rates at a hotel is something you’d be interested in finding out, just ASK! .

our staff are fully vaccinated
I work at a hotel but almost everyone lies about their vaccination status… maybe only 2 of us are vaccinated and none wear masks except in front of customers.
Newest data from Denmark and UK this week – shows the vaccinated are 4.5x MORE likely to get Covid now.
This is truly a pandemic of the VACCINATED.
I am so glad I never got the shot, and I never ever will.
I can’t imagine how many people will die, and have died, due to rushed vaccinations :/
The vaccinated (but unboosted) are more likely to get Omicron than they were to get Delta. The vaccinated are still less likely than unvaccinated to get Omicron, they’re significantly less likely to be hospitalized than the unvaccinated, and the vaccinated are *much* less likely to be admitted to ICU.
This is a pandemic of people who don’t understand statistics.
The vaccinated, due to their greater risk of spreading the virus, should be mandated to quarantine for at least a few hours whenever they travel between buildings. Also they should face higher penalties if they are not wearing a mask correctly over their mouth.
Some company should figure out how to create a way to unvaccinate people.
You’re just making crap up. The vaccinated are significantly less likely to spread virus than the unvaccinated, because they’re less likely to get sick.
The vaccines dont work, and most certainly are not effective against Omicron. Soooooo. what?
Keep subscribing to that crap Steve, idiottttttt
They do work if you’re boosted. The problem is that the virus is “smarter” than a substantial portion of the US population, and can change to adapt to changed circumstances. The average Republican isn’t capable of doing the same.
Fully vaccinated is an outdated term. Based on current knowledge, those who received boosters may have immunity. The efficacy is decent but not anywhere near 90%. The efficacy against hospitalizations is better.
Those called fully vaccinated have little coverage. Based on the Emergency Use Authorization criteria, the vaccines would have failed and not receive EUA if omicron was the initial virus strain tested. Those fully vaccinated have a reported 50% or so efficacy against hospitalization.
Politicians often cite an “percentage that received at least one dose”. That is a joke statistic and misleading. One dose gives almost no coverage against omicron except in a rare person.
You’re exactly right, @Derek. COVID is proving to require multiple doses. Just like the vaccinations that all public school (and most private school) students in the US receive (which includes 5 different vaccinations with 3 or more doses before 18 months).
living in fear over a virus that can be easily treated is a horrible way to live life.
What’s next – you gonna allow the govt to chip you for your safety?
@John L – 820,000 people have died of this disease in the US, the vast majority of whom were unvaccinated. It wasn’t so easy to treat for them.
everyone should be vaccinated against COVID 19
