As more shutdowns states ensue due to the increase of cases on COVID-19 in the United States, some hotels are helping out. For example, the American Hotel and Lodging Association put together a program called “Hotels for Hope” identifying 6500 hotels properties near healthcare facilities to assist their workers with temporary housing.
That’s just the beginning of how the hotel industry is supporting the community during this time of crisis. Many brands are also offering discounts or in some cases free nights, such as:
- Oyo Hotels offering free nights to first responders
- Domio offering free housing to Medical Professional and first responders in Miami, Nashville and Chicago.
- Red Roof discounting stays for students who cannot return to campus or home.
With the strong impact of COVID in hospitality, it’s refreshing to see how hotel are making an effort to support those who are in need and are in the front lines of fighting this pandemic.
We’re also here to help support hoteliers during this crisis. Transworld continues to operate and has secured inventory in Hospitality TV, PTACs and appliances. This gives us the ability to respond to our customer’s needs.
