Recover Hospitality FAQ
Does someone have to be in recovery to book a Recover Hospitality Experience lodging package?
No, you don't have to be in recovery, as our lodging packages are meant for anyone looking for a travel experience that is less alcohol focused. Anyone can book a Recover Hospitality Experience provided they're not actively engaged in addictive behavior.
I'm not in recovery from alcohol, will the hotel's restaurant stop me from drinking?
No. A Recover Hospitality Experience is only designed to offer a more supportive lodging & dining environment. The hotel & restaurant staff will not stop a guest from consuming alcohol.

A wellness concierge is an individual with in-depth knowledge of the community where you will be traveling. The knowledge base includes what local restaurants and activity vendors offer environments supportive of mental health & wellness.
Will the staff at the hotel know my recovery status?

The staff at our partnered hotels have been trained on how best to provide a more supportive environment regardless of why a guest chooses to book a Recover Hospitality Experience.
