Hotel Engine Creates National Network of 22,500 Hotels to Provide Immediate Lodging Assistance for Healthcare Professionals and Support Personnel

Hotel Engine announced today a partnership with several national hotel chains to provide further discounted hotel rates at 22,500 hotels for healthcare professionals and support personnel assisting with combating the COVID-19 pandemic. While most individuals are encouraged to quarantine and stay within their homes – there are brave and selfless individuals, groups, and organizations who must travel. These doctors, researchers, health care professionals, patient care specialists, and more are in need of lodging as they help battle the Coronavirus outbreak.

Hotel Engine already delivers an average of 26% off room rates. Graciously, Wyndham, Best Western, Red Lion, Drury, OYO, Red Roof, Motel 6, Studio 6, Choice, Extended Stay America, and others have agreed to partner by providing further discounts off currently offered rates. Most of these hotels are offering an additional 15% off stays under 30 days and 20% for stays over 30 days on the Hotel Engine platform. More hotels have expressed interest and are expected to join the partnership in the future.

“In these unprecedented times, we’re fortunate to be able to partner with some incredible hotel brands to help those who are putting themselves in harm’s way to assist those in need,” said Elia Wallen, founder, and CEO of Hotel Engine. “This is brand new to all of us, and we’re all learning more about the pandemic each day. We’re proud to help in whatever way we can.”

Statements from some of our partners:

“All of us at OYO are grateful for the bravery and sacrifices these medical personnel are making to save lives and stop the spread of the Coronavirus,” said Ritesh Agarwal, Founder and Group CEO, OYO Hotels and Homes. “Our hearts go out to all those impacted by this terrible disease.”
