AHLA celebrates the Hotel Heroes who continue to shine during these challenging times.

This week’s featured Hotel Hero: Alejandra Cuevas, Housekeeping Supervisor, Hyatt Regency Houston

During COIVD-19, Alejandra’s property was short staffed during Hurricane Laura. She independently returned 230 rooms back to inventory to provide accommodations for first responders. Alejandra checks on staff who have been furloughed and keeps the HR department updated on how her teammates are doing. Her attention to detail, caring demeanor, and dedication to her colleagues and community is evident in everything she does for those around her and makes her this week’s Hotel Hero.

We need bipartisanship in the Biden administration to ensure economic relief for the industries hardest-hit by COVID-19. “We’re all suffering,” said AHLA President & CEO Chip Rogers. “[Congress] has got to figure this out and stop pointing fingers.”

Leaders of the top lobbying groups for hotels and travel say the recent U.S. election presents signs of hopefulness, but there’s also work to be done convincing new lawmakers of the industry’s importance.

Congress can’t wait any longer on #COVIDrelief. 71% of hotels won’t make it another 6 months without further federal assistance given current and projected travel demand and 77% will be forced to lay off more workers.

Choice, wyndham CEO's say they are trying to help hotel industry .IN a sense they maybe correct. Then why dont they help fanchisees?P at is just doing this so he makes sure his invoices are paid and they can continuing mounting the money and there stocks. No one is in it for others . They are always in it for themselves. If he was trying to help franchisees and the hotels the way he says he is why is there no relief on royalties? Why is there no relief on temp breakfast? Mandated vendors? Its all a monopoly.

I stayed at Comfort Inn, Choice Hotel, Kent, Ohio for a week, when I made the reservation, they neglected to inform me I would have to clean my room, half the staff neglected to wear state required Masks and most of all they leave the side door and back doors open for anyone to enter the Pool area, where we had men coming in, stripping down to their boxer shorts, one getting in the Hot Tub with children, another sitting by the Pool and watching the children. When we informed the front desk, they explained the doors had to remain open for air circulation. BEWARE OF YOUR CHILDREN'S SAFETY. The water fountain the children used was full of dirt and rust and even when told about it, it was never cleaned.
