Atlanta (PRWEB) July 01, 2014
The world’s largest hotel owner’s organization has announced it will offer a free hotel stay to a U.S. serviceman recently denied accommodations because of his service dog. The Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) will offer Sergeant Robert Price a free stay at any AAHOA member hotel. Price was denied a room while vacationing in Daytona Beach, FL. The retired Army Sergeant uses a service dog to assist him since suffering post-traumatic stress disorder following combat tours in the Middle East.
“AAHOA has always supported and been especially passionate about efforts to support our service men and women,” said AAHOA board chairman Pratik Patel. “The fact that Sergeant Price was denied a hotel room is simply unacceptable. We at AAHOA not only support Sergeant Price, but offer him a free stay in any AAHOA member hotel in the nation.”
In recent years AAHOA members have given away tens of thousands of free hotel stays through an AAHOA-USO initiative, which allows members of the US military to stay in AAHOA member hotels upon leave or discharge from their tour of duty. AAHOA salutes Sergeant Price and all the men and women who have given our nation so much through their service.
AAHOA has more than 12,500 members who together own more than 40% of all U.S. hotels. AAHOA member employ almost 600,000 people and spending more than $31 billion annually on operating costs plus another $900 annually on capital improvements.
