Hilton and American Express come together to offer free rooms to 1 million medical professionals fighting COVID-19 in the US

Renowned hotel chain Hilton has partnered with the American Express to express gratitude to healthcare workers by offering them rooms for free. The brands have promised to offer free services to as many as 1 million healthcare professionals, who are working day and night to save people from the deadly Coronavirus.

Hilton released a press release, stating that starting next week, Hilton and American Express “will make rooms available without charge to doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics and the other frontline medical staff who need a place to sleep, recharge or isolate from their families through the end of May”.

The two groups have partnered for an initiative to give nearly hotel rooms to doctors, nurses, paramedics, where they can sleep and rest or self-isolate. This will start from April 13 and go on till May end. The payment for the room will either be taken care of by Hilton and American Express, or via money donated by individual hotel owners.

As of now, the companies have partnered with 10 medical associations, representing more than one million medical workers across the US. The medical staff can stay at several Hilton hotels, including Hilton Garden Inn, DoubleTree by Hilton and Hampton by Hilton, to name a few.

Praising the efforts of the medical professionals, the American Express Chairman and CEO, Stephen J. Squeri said, “Our medical workers who are courageously and selflessly serving on the frontlines in the coronavirus crisis represent the best of who we are”.

He further added that they are honoured to support this initiative with Hilton in order to offer the heroes a place to rest and recharge and “help keep their loved ones safe during this time”.
