Safety & Cleanliness at The Redwood Riverwalk Hotel in Fortuna CA – Always a Top Priority

The arrival of spring is a special time throughout the country, as we bid farewell to the last vestiges of winter. Did you know that, within our giant redwood forests, the dawn of the new season can be seen as early as January, when the Milkmaids present their pinkish-white petals? As the calendar morphs from January to February, the Redwood Sorrel, the Redwood Violet, Forget Me Nots and Buttercups arrive, among other plants-all of which thrive within the moist wooded environs beneath the shade of the redwoods.

Once it is safe to travel again, we can’t wait for you to experience all of this and more on your next visit to The Redwood Riverwalk Hotel.

Please know that your wellness and the well-being of our team is foremost in our thoughts and actions.

Our previous article highlighted the unique qualities of the Tersano Stabilized Aqueous Ozone sanitization system that The Redwood utilizes. Some procedures and policies we’ve instituted to further ensure everybody’s well-being:

COVID-19 Updates: Our staff is continually updated with the latest information from our local, state, and federal health authorities, and our procedures are modified constantly as a result of any health and safety recommendations from our regulatory agencies.

Staff and Guest Safety: We consistently reinforce to our staff that they should stay home if they show any signs of illness. While this has been a standard practice for our hotel, we remain vigilant in ensuring our team understands how vital this is for everyone’s safety -including our guests. Our hotel design allows our guest rooms to be generously spaced apart from each other.

Cleaning and Hygiene Procedures: Our already rigorous cleaning and sanitization procedures have been ramped up. In addition to our detailed room cleanings between guests, we clean more often, especially in common areas, sanitizing “hot spots” (door handles, counters and the like) much more frequently. Our on-site laundry and business center are also sterilized daily.

Policies and features we’ve always had in place:

  • Cancellation: You can cancel a reservation anytime – even as late as the day of check-in.
  • Deposit: No deposit ever!
  • Charges: Your credit/debit card will not be charged until checkout!
  • Pets: We are a dog-friendly hotel with an enclosed “dog park” where your family canine (and you!) can run around, off leash for daily exercise. Please see our pet policy for complete details.
  • FREE Wi-Fi!
  • Free parking in our private lot near all guest rooms!
  • Enjoy convenient in-room dining safely: You can purchase beer and wine from The Redwood, just ask us! We offer several Humboldt County beers, wines, gin and vodka from the Humboldt Distillery right here in Fortuna. Doordash is available for food delivery, as well as other local take-out options. We also feature a special pizza dinner package from our favorite local pizza parlor, Westside Pizza. In addition, our complimentary breakfast features over 12 breakfast items that you are free to enjoy in your room.
  • Helping you get the utmost out of your trip: We have partnered with our favorite local businesses to help you have the best Northern California experience, whether you are an outdoor activity enthusiast or prefer to explore on your own. Once we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions are lifted, you’ll be able to experience all that Fortuna and Humboldt County have to offer.

While all 280 California state parks are temporarily closed to vehicular traffic, some local parks within Humboldt County remain open for day use. Walking, hiking and biking are permitted in open areas or designated trails that allow for 6 feet of distancing. Please visit the parks and facilities webpage for the most up-to-date information. A simple reminder about social distancing: Just you, a few trees and maybe an Ewok.

The Redwood Riverwalk Hotel encourages you to continue to support your favorite businesses where you can. Our fervent hope is for all of us to get safely through this challenging time together. Our wish is that we continue to provide you with the best possible service, while supporting the livelihood of our staff, friends and local community.
