Extended Stay America is partnering with the American Cancer Society to provide 10,000 free nights and 10,000 discounted nights in its hotels to cancer patients who must travel to another city to receive treatment. The donation will expand the Society’s Guest Room program, which offers free and discounted rooms to patients and caregivers, offsetting costs associated with living away from home.

The hotel rooms will be available starting November 1 in Atlanta, Boston, and Houston, and will be rolled out to other cities beginning in early 2014. In all, Extended Stay America will offer 10,000 free rooms to cancer patients and another 10,000 rooms at a discounted rate of $12 per night at 684 locations in the US. Cancer patients and their caregivers can request rooms by calling the American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345.

“Extended Stay America is committed to giving back to the many communities in which we operate, and one important way to accomplish this is by taking care of those who seek a better future for themselves and their families,” said Jim Donald, chief executive officer at Extended Stay America. “With cancer impacting everyone’s life in some way, we’re proud to partner with the American Cancer Society to provide the key to hope for patients battling cancer so they can focus on their fight.”

According to Solt, Extended Stay America guest rooms will work especially well because they come equipped with a full kitchen and access to laundry facilities, making them more like home.
