Marriott and Hyatt Were First with Mask Policies
The other day, Marriott announced that masks would be required in all Marriott properties in the United States. Hyatt was *right behind* and probably had the announcement already planned when Marriott announced. Hyatt announced mask requirements in the US and Canada.
I speculated that Hilton and IHG would likely be close behind. When the airlines started mask policies, they were like dominos.
IHG’s Face Mask Policy Will Be Effective from July 27th
In the United States and Canada, you’ll need to wear a face covering while indoors and outside of your room at any IHG property.
For those less familiar with the IHG brand portfolio, it includes Intercontinental, Holiday Inn, Kimpton, Indigo, Crowne Plaza, Candlewood Suites and Springhill Suites.
Hilton Will Require Face Coverings from July 28th in the United States
If you really don’t want to wear a mask to protect yourself and others from the Coronavirus, you’ll have one extra day before the policy is in effect at Hilton properties,
Hilton’s brand portfolio includes Hilton, Conrad, Waldorf Astoria, Hilton Garden Inn, Hampton Inn, Double Tree and many more.
If you arrive at a Hilton brand hotel without a face covering, one will be provided to you at no charge.

Over 1,100 people died in he US yesterday alone from COVID-19, with the total US death toll over a mind blowing 146,000. These are precisely the kind of actions that we need to help finally turn a corner on this virus and slow the spread. That’s simply what it will take to control this until we have a vaccine.
