Four Season's Hotel To Provide Free Housing For Nurses & Doctors During COVID-19 Outbreak
With the growing cases of COVID-19 in New York City, nurses and medical personnel will be able to call the Four Seasons in Manhattan on Billionaire Row “home” - for free - during the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor, Andrew Cuomo, announced in a press release on Wednesday that the 5-star hotel is the first of many to offer housing free of charge for those on the frontlines.
"Many of those working in New York City have to travel long distances to and from their homes after putting in 18-hour days. They need a place close to work where they can rest and regenerate. I heard Governor Cuomo’s call to action during one of his press conferences, and there was no other option for us but to do whatever we could to help,” said Ty Warner, who is Chairman for the company that owns the Four Seasons.
The hotel is located within 30 blocks of several NYC hospitals including,
- Bellevue Hospital
- Weill Cornell Medical Center
- NYU Langone
- Mt. Sinai
The Four Seasons in NYC will not be taking reservations until after April 15, 2020.
