September 12, 2013 // Franchising.com // PHOENIX, Ariz. – Taking the time to coordinate transportation from one location to another can get in the way of the true work at hand.
Those attending the 19th Annual Lodging Conference in Phoenix, Ariz., next week won’t have to spend that extra time looking for rides around town thanks to Wingate by Wyndham®, which is giving conference goers access to an exclusive $20 discount on their first ride with on-demand car service provider Uber.
Uber provides a simple, efficient car service experience by allowing anyone to request a ride anytime in major cities via the company’s iPhone and Android apps, text message or the web. Licensed, insured drivers arrive to the customer’s specified pick-up location within minutes of the order; furthermore, customers can track the arrival status of their ride right from their mobile devices.
Beginning Sept. 17, 2013, conference participants can request the Wingate by Wyndham discounted Uber ride by signing up online at uber.com/go/WingatePHX2013 or by downloading the Uber app on their mobile devices and entering special promotional code “WingatePHX2013.” Attendees can then relax or finish conducting business, as they will receive a text message when their driver arrives curbside. After arrival, Uber will automatically charge the credit card on file, apply the discount and send a receipt via email.
“By helping people get around easily and in style, we can offer something extra to busy, hardworking conference goers,” said Bill Hall, brand senior vice president for Wingate by Wyndham. “The Wingate by Wyndham brand is all about making sure business travelers have everything they need while on the road – plus a few extras – for one simple, affordable rate. We’re happy to extend this philosophy here in Phoenix to help people conduct business with more convenience and less stress.”
Attendees can get more information by visiting the Wyndham Hotel Group booth or speaking with a Wyndham Hotel Group representative during the conference. The offer is valid nationwide for 60 days for new riders only.
