Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) - May 29, 2012 - Major Canadian hospitality chain Days Inns - Canada is proudly promoting the launch of its new Facebook page – - with a contest that will award the Grand Prize winner a weeklong trip for two to one of five major Canadian cities.

“Our new Facebook page enables us to connect with travellers and help them rediscover the friendly service, reliable value, and freshened standards of Days Inn,” says Melissa Kenney, senior director of marketing, Realstar Hospitality, which holds the master franchise rights for the Days Inn brand in Canada. “It’s such an effective platform for providing our guests with relevant travel information – for example, how they can travel more and spend less with our ‘Book Direct & Save’ discount program. Just as importantly, it also allows us to directly engage Canadians in discussions about their expectations and experiences. We view this page as an important tool for building and maintaining lasting relationships.”

Visitors who ‘like’ the new Days Inn Canada Facebook page will have access to Canadian-specific travel tips, discounts, and contests like the current “I Love Canada” promotion created by Clearview Digital Marketing. In addition to the Grand Prize of a 7-night trip for two to either Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, Montreal or Halifax (including hotel, airfare and $500 in spending money), the contest will also award four weekly prizes and 30 daily prizes to participants who correctly answer fun Canadian-oriented multiple choice trivia questions.

“Canadians are proud of our great country, so naturally we wanted to challenge them with a contest that draws upon their national pride and knowledge,” says Kenney. “This is a fun way to interact with our guests, and we’re looking forward to awarding 35 exciting getaway packages.”

The “I Love Canada” contest, runs until June 21, 2012, with the Grand Prize winner being announced on June 25, 2012. Full rules and regulations are provided on the Facebook page.
