Hilton has joined forces with its long-standing strategic partner, American Express and Hilton’s ownership community to donate up to 1 million hotel room nights across the United States to frontline medical professionals leading the fight against COVID-19.
Doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics and other frontline medical staff who are leading the fight against COVID-19 will be given a place to sleep, recharge or isolate from their families through the end of May beginning next week.
Hilton is initially working with 10 associations who collectively represent over 1 million healthcare workers to provide access to the programme so that these individuals would not have to spend their own money on accommodations.
Rooms will be available across a variety of Hilton brands, including Hampton by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, DoubleTree by Hilton and others. Hotels will be staffed by Team Members who have received additional training on relevant health and safety measures to safeguard their own and their guests’ well-being. Hotel rooms and common areas will continue to be sanitised using industrial grade cleaners and updated cleaning protocols. In some high-demand locations, room availability may be limited at times.
