InterContinental Hotels or IHG, a British multinational hospitality company has expanded a statement of hope by lighting up many of its empty rooms with symbols of love as the world faces prospect of lockdown.
While many hotels around the world remained empty as the hospitality industry experiences the results of the COVID-19 outbreak, IHG put out a symbol of ‘love’ and ‘hope’ across many of its properties.
Locals in destinations such as Davos, Amsterdam and Berlin saw as heart symbols were created from guestroom lights in the windows of empty properties.
The display came after the hotel group, which has more than 5,900 hotels and approximately 884,000 guestrooms in its franchise, updated its cancellation policy in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic. The group has now waived cancellation fees for existing and new bookings at all IHG hotels globally for stays between March 9, 2020 and April 30, 2020.
