The hotel technology enterprise Cloudbeds has developed an impressive creative concept, which utilizes empty hotel rooms to full capacity. The initiative HospitalityHelps offers an online platform which provides rooms for Covid-19 patients, as well as their family members or caregivers.
The founders of Cloudbeds campaigned to avoid a major shortage of available beds for sick people and people in health professions who are fighting the coronavirus. This counteracts both the potential closing of hotels and the resulting loss of sales in the accommodation sector.

Cloudbeds has already received 82 million dollars in financing to further develop the HospitalityHelps concept.
Help for hotels
Hotels which provide accommodations will be paid for their services, the amount depending on the scope. In this regard, the company decides on a case by case basis.
