Quad City Hotels Offering Discounted Rooms To Front Line Workers
Hawkeye Hotels, a national hospitality firm, is providing discounted rooms at its hotels to healthcare workers and first responders, according to our news partner Local 4 News.
For local healthcare workers and first responders in the Quad Cities, these discounted or free rooms are available at the Hampton Inn in Clinton, Radisson Quad City Plaza in Davenport and Hampton Inn in Muscatine.
In a press release from Hilton, they said that Hilton-owned hotels which include the two Hampton Inns in Clinton and Muscatine,
"...will make rooms available without charge to doctors, nurses, EMTs, paramedics and other frontline medical staff who need a place to sleep, recharge or isolate from their families through the end of May."
Allison Ordman, a spokeswoman for Iowa-based Hawkeye Hotels, said in an email to Local 4 News, discounts are available through at least May 31 and will “vary based on brand, hotel, market and need.” Ordman continued saying,
“They are very significantly discounted and in many cases near cost for us. Our goal is to support the community’s efforts however we can.”
Local 4 News also reports that these discounts will also be available to people traveling due to the COVID-19 outbreak, specifically people traveling for funerals, visiting family, and emergency management personnel among others.
In the press release, Hilton says that rooms will be available across a variety of Hilton brands, including Hampton by Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, DoubleTree by Hilton and others. The organizations below will provide their networks and employees with further details about booking rooms through this program. Again, this is planned to cover stays from April 13th through May 31st.
