Hotels are lighting up empty rooms in heart shapes to show support for workers during their lonely commute.

Hotel chain, InterContinental, is showing their support for the community with a sweet gesture that they’re calling #LightsOfLove. While the hotels are currently closed on account of the pandemic, the empty rooms are being used to create glowing hearts around the city.

Both locations, in Nob Hill and SoMa, are lighting up daily, giving workers returning home from their long shifts, or going into work to fight the daily battle against the virus, a small bit of encouragement.


On Reddit, a healthcare worker shared her view of the lights while driving down Mission. The post received an overwhelming response in the comments with kind words of appreciation, uplifting songs and tons of heart emojis.
