Post Ranch Signature Disinfection and Hygiene Solution

Rather than use bleach or other toxic chemicals to disinfect, Post Ranch set out to find a disinfection and cleaning solution that stayed true to our environmental ethos. After a comprehensive search, Post Ranch has implemented a two-step disinfection program that works to purify the air and renders surfaces self-disinfecting in a non-toxic, sustainable and healthful manner. The solution meets CDC and EPA guidelines, is Green Seal-certified and provides an odorless, non-toxic, hospital-grade disinfecting and cleaning system. 

  • The solution purifies the air and renders surfaces self-disinfecting in a non-toxic, sustainable and healthful manner.

  • The program utilizes the non-toxic, EPA-approved ECA Water* to disinfect and will be used in all guestrooms and public spaces frequently throughout the day. It will also be administered in our vehicles.

We want to provide our guests with the highest level of personalized service and attention, while also respecting personal space. To that end, we will be integrating some of the services that are traditionally carried out during evening turndown service into the daily service, potentially eliminating one of the steps where staff needs to enter the room. Additional services are always available for guests upon request. To accommodate personal preferences, we are offering various options:

  • Daily Service: Our team will access your room once daily to provide room make-up service and to restock your complimentary mini-bar and firewood.

  • Requested Service Only: We understand some guests may prefer complete guestroom privacy. Prior to arrival, we will stock your room for the entire stay, and discuss options for the delivery of extra linens, bathroom amenities, mini-bar items, and firewood deliveries.

Certain items throughout the guestroom, including the mini-bar and coffee makers, will be completely replaced prior to guests entering the room. We have also eliminated all magazines and collateral material, and have thoroughly disinfected all items in the room.

Meals and Dining Options

  • Monterey County is now permitting indoor dining. As such, Sierra Mar is welcoming guests to dine in the dining room, albeit with a reduced seating capacity, or outdoors on the deck. As an alternative, guests may enjoy their meals in the comfort of the guestroom.

  • We have taken unprecedented steps, working with some of the country’s foremost experts in indoor air quality, to ensure that Sierra Mar has been set up as safely as possible. Some of these steps include installing a state-of-the-art ventilation system, ultra-efficient air purifiers have been placed throughout the dining room, tabletop air purifiers sit on each table, real-time air quality monitors allow us to adjust and optimize air quality as needed, plexiglass partitions have been placed between each table and more.
