To enable seamless, remote check-ins, touchless check-ins would be facilitated via an app, in which, all information would already be pre-registered. Post the checkout, the same room would be allocated 24 hours later, after being thoroughly disinfected. Roseate Hotels & Resorts would also follow an alternate room occupancy policy to maintain social distancing, and the housekeeping staff would wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). Delivery and clearance of Room Service orders would be done outside the hotel room entrance itself. To ensure touchless usage of elevators, a staff member in PPE would be present to operate the lift with no more than three members at a time.

The app even gives the guests a live view of the food being prepared in the kitchen. The bill will also be sent via the app, which the guests will be allowed to pay by credit cards.
