A Message from Sewanee Inn

During these unprecedented times, we recognize the need to do all we can to ensure the health and safety of our guests and associates. We will continue to closely monitor and follow guidelines from the CDC and local health departments. 

We are also taking standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously and are adding additional steps to surpass the standards set forth for our industry. We will continue to monitor and adjust our services and offerings based on industry and regulatory directives.

Below are specific areas we are addressing throughout the guest experience within our hotel:

Arrival/Front Desk

  • Upon arrival, all guests will have their temperature taken with an infrared digital thermometer. Any guests registering a temperature in excess of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit will not be allowed to enter The Sewanee Inn.
  • Staff is sanitizing all check in items including room keycard, pens, and credit card terminal.
  • Front Desk will be wiped hourly after and after each guest interaction.
  • Staff will inform guests of local dining options due to reduction in operating hours.
  • Guest chairs have been separated from the front desk to maintain social distancing.
  • Registration cards will  be suspended until further noticed to eliminate the need for guests using pens at the desk, which have also been removed.
  • Guests will be asked to slide their own credit cards in the card reader. 
  • Key cards will be made and placed in envelopes prior to guest arrival. An envelope will be ready upon guest arrival.

Lobby & Corridors
