Hilton and American Express have partnered with Hilton’s ownership community to donate up to one million hotel room nights across the United States to frontline medical professionals leading the fight against COVID-19.
Starting next week, the two companies will make rooms available without charge to doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics and other frontline medical staff through the end of May.
McLean, VA-based Hilton is initially working with 10 associations that collectively represent more than one million healthcare workers to provide access to the program, designed to support individuals who would otherwise have to spend their own money on accommodations.
American Express, Hilton’s longstanding strategic partner, is investing alongside Hilton in donating the hotel rooms, which will be provided at or below cost by Hilton’s network of independent owners and franchisees.
Rooms will be available across a variety of Hilton brands, including Hampton by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn and DoubleTree by Hilton.
