WACO -- Those who have loved ones in the hospital or other treatment centers don't have to miss out this Thanksgiving. Owners of a local hotel chain have a program that makes it affordable to see family this holiday season.
The Residence Inn and Fairfield Inn in Waco are two hotels that are offering free rooms to people who are here to visit loved ones in the hospital on the holidays.
Sales director of The Residence Inn, Carlena Wlazlinski, says some customers are in tears when they hear about the program. "During the holidays finances are more tight for everybody. So, to know that they can save that money, to be able to be here with their loved ones during the holidays, family and being together is what it's all about," said Wlazlinski.
More than 220 hotels are offering the free rooms for the holidays. Click here to find out where.
