Stay It Forward

Love for Our First Responders & Essential Workers

Together, let's show some love to those that work to keep us safe. For every night you book at Hotel Emblem, the hotel will donate a complimentary night to a first responder or essential worker. Because you deserve an escape. And no one is more worthy of a break than the can't-stop-won't-stop workers in healthcare, fire, police, public utilities, government, food and grocery, education and other essential services. Find additional information about the Stay It Forward program in the FAQ section below.

The Urban Amenity Fee is waived on the complimentary night; however, guests will still be able to enjoy all the benefits.
