  • Established Protocols: consider staying at places that have remained open during the pandemic, as these lodging companies have established protocols that work. Extended Stay America has remained 100% open during the pandemic.
  • Travel Flexibility: you never know when your travel plans may change to due travel restrictions and health issues, so it’s best to book lodging that can be cancelled if needed.
