Hospitality Helps

Hotel rooms for people in need

Organized by hospitality industry veterans, #HospitalityHelps was created with a single goal: to provide temporary hotel accommodations to Ukrainian residents who were forced to leave their homes as a result of the war. The organization connected families on the run with hotels across Europe that wanted to provide free stays.
As a way to offer practical and immediate assistance, we at Design Hotels actively encouraged our hotel community to partake in #HospitalityHelps. We also offered support to our hotels who acted independently to assist refugees through initiatives that include providing free rooms, fundraising, working with local consulates, and more. #HospitalityHelps is no longer accepting new bookings, but continues to honor existing reservations made for the 2022 year.
