‘Hotel Impossible’ Host Anthony Melchiorri’s Travel Tips for COVID – Newsweek

The last year has been full of change: face masks, hand sanitizer and staying feet away from strangers have become common practice. As society has shifted to respect the coronavirus boundaries, so has the travel industry. But unfortunately, the ever-present danger meant many canceled vacations, work-from-home routines and a simple decision to stay home.

The travel industry certainly isn’t dead, though. Some friends and family have chosen to safely gather for Christmas, while others are already planning post-COVID vacations. And hotels, airports and more travel necessities have already added COVID-friendly practices to their daily routines. If you choose to travel now, or after coronavirus, there’s reason to trust the businesses you patron are taking care of your health, as well as their own.

Former Hotel Impossible host and hospitality expert Anthony Melchiorri revealed some of the hotel industry changes that have come to life in 2020, and what can be expected as the world returns to normal.
