The hotel supplies blankets for the Saudi Arabian and Kuwaiti governments have arrived at the Phoenix hotel in Phoenix, Arizona, according to a hotel spokeswoman.
The blankets are available for a one-time fee of $35 per guest, and guests will have to pay the $35 for the hotel to be credited for the supplies, which are used for the winter months, the spokeswoman said.
The blankets will be delivered in the next few days.
The hotels’ blankets are a big step in helping to keep the temperature in the region under control, said Sarah Hickey, a spokesperson for the Salt Lake County Health Department.
The first shipment of the supplies arrived at Phoenix airport on Saturday.
The second shipment arrived Tuesday at the Marriott hotel.
The third shipment arrived on Wednesday, and the fourth shipment arrived Thursday.
The hospitals are all sending blankets to Saudi Arabia and Kuwait to help reduce the number of hospital stays during the winter, said John O’Keefe, director of the Utah Department of Health Services.
