SILVER SPRING, Md. // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Choice Hotels (NYSE: CHH) is pleased to announce a compelling new promotion that makes travel affordable and fun again this fall. Guests who stay at Choice Hotels this fall take home one free night for every 3 straight nights they stay at the same hotel. The free night can be redeemed at over 1,500 Choice Hotels properties.
From August 31 through November 19, 2009, guests who are members of the Choice Privileges rewards program and stay three consecutive nights at any of the 5,500-plus Choice brand hotels in the Choice Privileges program will earn enough rewards points to redeem for a free night on a future stay at over 1,500 hotels. Guests who aren't already members of Choice Privileges can join while reserving a room this fall through choicehotels.com or 800-4CHOICE. It's that simple.
"A tough economy has tightened budgets and made travel more challenging for business and leisure travelers alike," said Chris Malone, chief marketing officer for Choice Hotels. "Our 'Take Home A Free Night' promotion was designed with these guests in mind. By combining free nights with the free breakfast and free internet our guests receive at most of our hotels, we're making fall travel a better value than ever."
Guests can stay with any of ten Choice Hotels brands, which include Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion, Cambria Suites, MainStay Suites, Suburban Extended Stay Hotel, Econo Lodge and Rodeway Inn, plus Ascend Collection.
