India-based OYO Hotels offers free rooms in the U.S. to health care providers fighting COVID-19

OYO Hotels, run by Delhi-based entrepreneur Ritesh Aggarwal, will offer free accommodation across its 300 locations in the U.S.

As the world comes together to fight the Novel Coronavirus pandemic, an India-based hotel venture has offered help to healthcare providers in the United States.

OYO Hotels & Homes run by India’s youngest self-made billionaire, Ritesh Agarwal, will be offering free stays to medical professionals across its 300 locations in the U.S.

“We are grateful for the bravery and sacrifices all medical personnel are making to save lives and stop the spread of COVID-19,” Agarwal said. “Our hearts go out to all those impacted by this terrible illness.”

He added, “OYO was founded on the principle that we all should Live the Good Life and whatever we can do to make the lives of these brave women and men a little better, OYO and our wonderful hotel partners want to do.  It is our responsibility to give back. To all the medical personnel fighting this disease on the front lines, we welcome you and we can’t be grateful enough.”

Beginning March 24th, doctors, nurses and other medical first responders will be receiving free accommodation at OYO hotels in the United States so that they can sleep, shower, relax and recharge themselves.

Many medical professionals working on the front lines of COVID-19 are staying away from their families in order to maintain isolation. The offer would help a large number of such tired professionals who may have been looking at alternate accommodations.

Oyo Hotels & Homes founded in 2013 in India is a relatively young start up but today it is the world’s leading chain of hotels and homes. It operates in 80 countries across the world.

How it works:

Those on  the  front  lines  in  the  medical  community  should  call  (+1) 628-213-7020 (code:OYO4FIRSTRESPONDERS) to get their reservation for the nearest OYO. With their valid active First Responder identification, OYO Hotels will cover all the costs.
