As part of their response to the coronavirus pandemic, many hotel chains have offered first responders discounts that range from percentage off the hotel rate to complimentary rooms and meals. These offers have been made to police officers, firefighters, paramedics, as well as those on the frontlines battling this crisis – police officers, firefighters, paramedics, etc. Some have even created special accommodations for families and pets if applicable; those eligible must present credentials at check-in in order to qualify.
