One of the hardest-hit industries is travel and hospitality. And amid all of this, some hotels around the world are still lighting up hope. Here’s how they are doing it. By Kumar Shree

Let’s face it, the travel and hospitality industry has been hit hard because of the travel bans and lockdowns around the world. While many of them are closing shops, some others are holding their heads high in these testing times. Not only that, but they are also trying to send out a message of love and hope. These hotels are doing so by lighting up their windows in the shape of a heart. It might be a small gesture, but the message is transcending boundaries and telling their guests that their favourite hotels await their arrival and that of better times.
