SPRINGFIELD, MO.—John Q. Hammons Hotels & Resorts (JQH) announced that as a part of the company’s commitment to innovation and an enhanced guest experience, it is collaborating with PURE Solutions to help create some of the freshest sleeping environments in the hospitality industry. Initially, JQH is launching PURE guestrooms in six of the award-winning company’s hotels spanning five states, including Arkansas, Colorado, New Mexico, Tennessee and Texas.
With the PURE allergy-friendly hotel rooms, in-room filtration systems remove air particles, while surfaces are treated to minimize growth of bacteria. These hypoallergenic hotel accommodations are nearly 99.9 percent allergen-free. A PURE room is a room with dramatically improved air quality and a significant reduction in irritants for all sensitive travelers, especially those suffering from allergies and asthma. PURE rooms undergo an extensive multi-step conversion and maintenance process with all products used considered environmentally friendly. Also, PURE guestrooms make it nearly impossible for bacteria viruses to survive due to a bacteriostatic barrier, which repels microorganisms. PURE’s system is proven to kill 98 percent to 100 percent of bacteria and viruses.
“At JQH, we are continually deploying new technologies and sustainable practices that align with our commitment to deliver an exceptional guest experience for meeting the diverse needs of travelers,” said Joe Morrissey, JQH’s Senior Vice President of Operations. “We are pleased to be able to offer PURE guestrooms to help ensure an even healthier room environment, including improved air quality.”

The roll out of PURE guestrooms in several JQH hotels is underway and currently spans Embassy Suites by Hilton and Courtyard by Marriott branded properties. Travelers can request a PURE room when booking a hotel stay. Six JQH hotels recently completed the conversion process to provide select inventory as PURE allergy-friendly hotel guestrooms:
- Courtyard by Marriott Fort Smith Downtown in Fort Smith, Arkansas;
- Embassy Suites by Hilton Northwest Arkansas—Hotel, Spa & Convention Center in Rogers, Arkansas;
- Embassy Suites by Hilton Loveland—Hotel, Conference Center & Spa in Loveland, Colorado;

- Embassy Suites by Hilton Dallas Frisco—Hotel, Convention Center & Spa in Frisco, Texas.
“Staying away from home can be challenging for some people that suffer from allergies and asthma, and allergen control is a growing demand for travelers,” said Haley Payne, PURE’s Director of Strategic Initiatives. “PURE rooms allow guests to rest comfortably, sleep better and wake refreshed, resulting in an enhanced guest stay. We are excited to be working with JQH to help provide guests with a healthy, hypoallergenic alternative.”
