As we all know non-essential travel has come to a stand-still due to COVID-19 restrictions, leaving countless rooms empty and closing the doors on many hotels.
Most hotel brands are being flexible, and accommodating the last minute and unplanned changes their guests are being forced to make, with no penalties and providing extra options for hanging on to points. Many of the brands are also trying to do their part in the crisis by providing support to their communities, and looking out for their member’s wellbeing at home.
Here’s what a handful Hotel brands have going on while their guests are staying safe at home:
