October 14, 2014 // Franchising.com // PARSIPPANY, N.J. – What's your dream destination? In celebration of 60 years of providing travelers with convenient and modern accommodations, the Ramada® hotel brand today announced the launch of the "Ramada's 60 Reasons Contest," offering consumers the chance to win one of six trips of a lifetime to one of 60 global destinations.
Started in 1954 as a small 60-room motel off of Route 66 in Flagstaff, Arizona, over the last 60 years, Ramada has grown to become one of the most well-known hotel chains in the world, with more than 820 locations throughout over 50 countries.
"Ours is a globally known brand with an outstanding footprint and heritage," said Caryl Porter, Ramada brand senior vice president. "What better way to celebrate this terrific milestone than by giving six loyal fans the chance to take the trip of a lifetime."
To enter for a chance to win, travelers should visit www.facebook.com/Ramada and click on the tab titled "60 Reasons." Once there, they must then pick the location of their dream getaway destination using an interactive map and provide a short, written reason for why they want to travel there. Brief contact information and a Wyndham Rewards® membership number are required to complete the entry. For those not already a member, Wyndham Rewards is free to join.
Upon conclusion of the contest, which ends November 16, 2014, a panel of judges will review all entries and select six winners to receive roundtrip airfare for two to any of 60 global destinations, six nights at the Ramada hotel of their choice and $2,000 U.S. in spending money, awarded in the form of a prepaid, Wyndham Rewards® Visa® Debit Card.
The Ramada's 60 Reasons Contest is open to all residents of the U.S. and Canada age 21 years or older. For more information, including official rules or to enter, visit
