Claridge’s hotel announced it has offered free accommodation to NHS workers as the coronavirus pandemic continues to unfold.
The five-star London hotel said it will open its doors to 40 doctors, nurses and other frontline staff from 3 April onwards.
The hotel will provide breakfast and dinner, and house workers in rooms that start from £650 a night.
Paddy McKillen, co-owner of the Maybourne Group, said: “Just as it has in the past world wars, Claridge’s has a duty to step up and support the people of London.
“Teams from all our hotels have volunteered to help and support the dedicated NHS workers at this critical time. We are forever in their debt.”
It comes after Claridge’s recently shut its doors for the first time in its 200-year history in light of the ongoing crisis.
The Mayfair hotel temporarily suspended its operations on 24 March in order to follow government advice and guidelines pertaining to the outbreak.
