From Adele Powers

From Adele Powers desk

Late last year, Adele Powers, General Manager at Beach View Hotel, kicked off our meet the staff series. The response was overwhelmingly positive. So we thought you’d like to hear more from her during the Coronavirus pandemic. (Beach View Hotel is temporarily closed until May 15th, 2020.)

More from Adele Powers…

Personally Speaking

How are you and your loved ones doing during this time?
AP: We are coping very well.  We are staying in touch with friends and family via phone and FaceTime, etc.  And, sad to say, snacking too much!

At Beach View Hotel

How long is your hotel closed?
AP: We are scheduled to reopen May 15th.  That date, of course, is subject to change based on the coronavirus and the Delaware State Governor’s orders.

Are you still on sight and if so, what are your hours?
AP: All hotel locations are closed at this time.

Which staff are still working?
AP: The entire administrative team is working remotely and tirelessly to keep the hotel running smoothly. The General Managers are working from home, answering emails and phone calls, making and changing reservations and, with the admin team, staying in touch with our staff.

What extra safety and cleanliness precautions have you take there?
AP: We are putting together our reopening plan. Included in this list is sanitizing and disinfecting the entire hotel. Also, establishing continued care and distancing to protect everyone.  We will be ready and well prepared to take good care of our Beach View family, when they arrive.

Rehoboth Beach

What is it like in Rehoboth Beach right now?
AP: Except for the Coronavirus, Rehoboth Beach reminds me of a time when I was much younger. A time when there was a definite distinction between the seasons. When side streets were empty. And a somewhat desolate Rehoboth Avenue awaited the arrival of summer tourists roaming the streets and boardwalk. Happy families crowding the beaches, the smell of french fries and cheese steaks in the air, and businesses in full bloom. It will be again!

Beating COVID-19

What is your best advice for staying positive during this challenging time?
AP: I’m sure there are many who are nervous and fearful of the virus and the “what ifs”. Beside adhering to the advice from your president, governor, surgeon general and doctor, be patient and pray!

From what you have witnessed, what do you wish people would do more of to help this pandemic come to a quick end?
AP: Stay home if you don’t have to be out.


Who would you like to commend during this pandemic?
AP: Health care workers, police, grocery store clerks, trash removal personnel, mail carriers and workers, truck drivers, our very own Seaboard Hotels administration team and the President of the U.S.
