Four Seasons Hotel to provide free stay for doctors, nurses
The Four Seasons Hotel in Manhattan will provide free rooms to doctors, nurses and other medical personnel.
The luxury hotel, where rooms typically top $1,000 a night, has closed itself to other guests and is not taking new bookings through April 15, according to its website.
“Many of those working in New York City have to travel long distances to and from their homes after putting in 18-hour days,” said Ty Warner, the founder and chairman of Ty Warner Hotels and Resorts, which owns the property. “They need a place close to work where they can rest and regenerate.”
Governor Andrew Cuomo announced the Four Seasons plan in a tweet on Wednesday.
