Airbnb said 25 listings in the city that received complaints or violated policies on events were suspended or removed from the platform. The suspensions were a direct result of calls to Airbnb’s 24/7 neighborhood support hotline, where neighbors can report concerns.
The company also issued suspensions in Columbus and Cincinnati on Thursday.
“We all have a role to play in reducing the number of parties and large gatherings during the pandemic,” said Alex Dagg, Northeast public policy director for Airbnb, in a news release. “We hope to raise greater awareness of our 24/7 neighbor support line, which helps us strengthen the enforcement of our ban on parties in Cleveland and across Ohio.”
Airbnb announced a ban on party houses and expanded its screening system for “high-risk” reservations last year.
