Wyndham Hotels and Resorts plans to set aside one out of every ten rooms as allergy-free zones by the end of next year.
In each designated room, a "medical-grade" air purification system will be installed.The walls, carpets, bedcovers, and fabrics in guest rooms will be treated with a long-lasting chemical bath to make them resistant to bacteria and viruses. Air-handling units and vents are given extra care, too.
This fall, guest rooms for allergy sufferers will be available by request at Wyndham locations in Cleveland, Galveston, Glen Allen, Va., and Oak Brook, Ill.

Here's hoping that other hoteliers turn this into a trend!
