The State Street Inn is now OPEN by advance reservation, and Delaware is open for visitors. If you have any questions, please contact us.
IMPORTANT - The following policy changes will be in effect until further notice:
- Face coverings are REQUIRED in all indoor common areas, due to state emergency order.
We must refuse entry to any adult not wearing a face covering. These can be purchased in advance, or you can make your own at home (click here for instructions). Face coverings are not required in your private guestroom. You may also enjoy our front porch or backyard without a face covering, if social distancing is maintained.
- Breakfast will be provided by room service.
You'll need to order breakfast the night before, and we'll leave it outside your door at a time you choose. As an alternative, we may be able to serve your breakfast on our front porch (depending on weather). Prefer to skip breakfast? We are now offering a lower rate that doesn't include breakfast.
- Mid-stay housekeeping service is not available.
Rooms will be thoroughly cleaned between guests. Extra towels and amenities will be provided by request.
- Our exercise room is closed.
What We're Doing
We are focused on maintaining a clean environment for our guests, and we are closely following all state regulations and industry guidelines.
We use disinfecting products to clean rooms after guests depart and before the next guest arrives, with particular attention paid to high-touch items, such as coffeemakers, light switches, and remote controls. All linens are machine-washed with bleach or chemical sanitizer between each guest, including blankets and covers. We have temporarily replaced glassware and ceramic coffee mugs with individually-wrapped paper cups. Items that can't be sanitized or replaced between guests have been removed.
We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in public spaces, including door handles and countertops.
Hand sanitizer is always available at our front desk.
You can help us by not shaking hands, always maintaining a six-foot distance from innkeepers and other guests, and washing or sanitizing your hands frequently. Thank you for your cooperation!
For everyone's safety, please cancel your reservation and stay home, if any of the following apply:
- you are feeling unwell; or are experiencing fever, sore throat, shortness of breath, or dry cough.
- you have tested positive for COVID-19 in the past 45 days.
- you have recently visited an area with a large cluster of coronavirus cases.
- you have had contact in the past month with anyone diagnosed with COVID-19.
