Forbes Travel Guide


EVERETT, MA (February 16, 2021) – Encore Boston Harbor is proud to announce that it is among the first hotels in the world to become Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide.


This comprehensive facility verification helps ensure guests can book with confidence at a resort that has consistent and robust health safety procedures in place.


“We enlisted a team of top-rated medical and health professionals from Georgetown and John Hopkins Universities to help us develop our health and safety programs; now considered the gold standard in our industry,” said Brian Gullbrants, president of Encore Boston Harbor. 


“Being Sharecare Health Security VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide is a testament to our continued effort to offer our guests the latest health safety advancements in addition to our five-star resort experience.” 


The Sharecare Health Security verification comes with an easily identifiable "seal of approval" – the Sharecare VERIFIED™ with Forbes Travel Guide badge – based on a hotel's compliance with expert-validated best practices that minimize the risk and impact of COVID-19 and potential future public health events. 


Developed by Forbes Travel Guide, the global authority on hospitality excellence, and digital health industry leader Sharecare, the comprehensive verification covers more than 360 standards across health and hygiene protocols, cleaning products and procedures, ventilation, physical distancing, the guest experience, and health safety communication with guests and employees. Hotels are required to verify their health protocols on an ongoing basis to ensure continued compliance with the most up-to-date global health standards.


“The pandemic has made it clear that hotels and resorts must, first and foremost, assure guests of their safety,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. "By becoming VERIFIED®, Encore Boston Harbor has demonstrated its commitment to creating a culture of accountability and following global best practices to heighten health security, certified by a third party.”
