Hotels affected by COVID-19

If your hotel operates differently than normal due to the COVID-19 situation, update your Business Profile on Google to provide the most accurate information to your customers. You can change your hours of operation and adjust attributes to reflect your services, such as if your business offers special deals to COVID-19 responders. The updates will show on your Business Profile on Google Search and Maps.

Important: We may review your changes for quality before we publish them, so the changes may delay the updates on Google Search and Maps.

To make sure your customers have the latest information about your hotel:
