Portland hotel donates rooms for health care workers

Published on : Tuesday, April 7, 2020

A hotel in Portland, Clarion Hotel is setting aside 50 rooms per night where healthcare workers can stay for free. It is making them available for workers at Maine Medical Center and Mercy Hospital.

 

Under Govornor Janet Mills order suspending most lodging operations in the state, hotels are allowed to offer rooms for people doing essential jobs, like health care workers. There will be a separate entrance to the hotel for the health care workers. They will use a separate elevator, and the available rooms are on two designated floors.

 

 

All housekeeping will be left outside of the room, so hotel employees won’t enter the room as they would normally. The management company for the hotel said the goal is to cut down on commuting for health care workers and to provide a safe place for those who worry about possibly infecting their families.

 

 

Olympia Hotel Management President Sarah Masterson said that it their home. It is where their hearts are. These are their neighbours, community members and family members working on the front lines here. You could call it kindness.  The hotel plans to keep the rooms available through at least the end of April.
