BALTIMORE — Three hotel chains have agreed to join a program that provides free rooms to wounded U.S. troops and their families.
Sen. Ben Cardin and U.S. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, the Maryland Democrats who created the program, will make an appearance at the Marriott Waterfront hotel in Baltimore on Friday to announce their first partners. National hotel chains Marriott and Wyndham and a smaller chain called AmericInn have agreed to participate in the “Hotels for Heroes” program.
The program will allow Americans to donate their hotel reward points to wounded veterans and their relatives.
Cardin and Ruppersberger will be calling on the rest of the hotel industry to join the program by Memorial Day.
A nice gesture, but the HOTELS really aren’t giving the rooms away, their patrons will be giving them to Wounded Veterans. Kudos should to the patrons NOT the hotels. Nice publicity for themselves tho, don’t you think?
