In addition to offering up their rooms to local healthcare workers, some New York hotels are going the extra mile in gifting care packages to the guests.
Hotels including Room Mate Grace in Manhattan and Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn have partnered with ATLIST Travel to complete the project.
Together, the pair are providing refreshments and personal care items for their guests, even with limited resources and physical interaction with guests.
The care packages comprise products donated by brands like CORE Foods, S.W Basics, KEHO Foods, 88 Acres, SEED Phytonutrients, Cocofloss, and Love Corn.
Their donations include nutritious breakfast bars, healthy protein snacks, nourishing hand salve, lip balm, and other toiletry kit basics.
They are mostly distributed via a grab-and-go station in the lobby to minimize staff-customer contact.
Tiffany Lin, ATLIST founder and CEO, commented: “Making guests feel truly cared for is what motivates and drives our entire industry.
“Right now, those guests are doctors and nurses helping our city fight COVID-19.
“Our hotel partners want to do everything possible to make them feel cared for and comfortable, so that’s one of the things we are helping them do right now.”
