Tell Hilton: Hotel Rooms Should be Cleaned Every Day

Hotel rooms should be cleaned every day. That’s what hotel guests have come to expect and love. But as tourism comes roaring back, Hilton wants to end this standard and eliminate housekeepers’ jobs.

Guests and health experts want more cleaning – not less – but Hilton recently announced the end of automatic daily housekeeping, a drastic cut to cleaning services when they have never been more important.

Ending daily housekeeping would eliminate up to an estimated 39% of all U.S. hotel housekeeping jobs – which are overwhelmingly held by women of color – while making housekeepers’ workloads more painful and forever changing the traveling experience for guests. Meanwhile, Hilton doubled the pay of CEO Chris Nassetta to $55 million in 2020.

But it’s not inevitable. Hotel guests and housekeepers worldwide are joining forces and taking action, telling Hilton that hotel rooms should be cleaned every day. Together, we can protect jobs and the traveling experience. Click here to add your name to the petition!
