VISIT Milwaukee has launched a website to highlight area hotels who are offering discounts to first responders and essential personnel on the front lines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The website is available at: https://www.visitmilwaukee.org/coronavirus/resources/special-hotel-rates/
“Our top priority is public safety and maintaining the health and well-being of all Milwaukeeans,” said Peggy Williams-Smith, president & CEO of VISIT Milwaukee. “We are unbelievably grateful to the police, fire, EMS, health care workers, sanitation workers, municipal employees, and all the essential workers who are reporting to work every day to keep our community going. Our hope is that this website provides resources for them to find a safe place to sleep without the risk of bringing the virus home to their loved ones. A sincere thank you to our hotel community for meeting this need.”
Rates and hotel locations vary.
“We continue to urge everyone who can stay home to please stay home. The more we observe strict social distancing, the sooner we can stop the spread of the virus and get back to business in Milwaukee,” said Williams-Smith.
