The Hyatt Place Washington D.C./U.S. Capitol is continuing their annual tradition of serving as a Toys for Tots drop-off site. This year, they are offering to go toy shopping for their guests and locals who wish to give, but don’t have the time to shop.

Guests can also give funds to the cause by having a donation added to their account upon check-in. The hotel will accept toys between now and Dec. 7.

“We understand that our guests are busy but still want to give to help kids in our community so we are going toy shopping for them,” says Ryan Cimei, hotel general manager. “Our guests are so kind and giving. Last year we collected over three large bins of toys, as many as a hotel triple our size would traditional collect.”

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
