The luxury Four Seasons Hotel in Manhattan will open its doors free of charge to exhausted medical workers in an effort to support the response to COVID-19.
The five-star hotel at 57 E. 57th Street will offer healthcare workers a place to rest between long shifts, as many have a long commute before they can return home, according to a Wednesday press release.
“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, owner of Four Seasons New York. “They need a place close to work where they can rest and regenerate.”
Warner made the decision after hearing Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s call to action in a press conference, he said.
