Stay Twice and Earn a Free Night

27th Jan 2004

Choice Hotels will reward its guests with an extraordinary offer this spring - a free night`s lodging after every two stays at any Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion or MainStay Suites brand hotel in the U.S.
To participate in this promotion, guests must be members of the Choice Privileges rewards program. Members who stay on two separate occasions at any Choice Hotels` midscale brand hotel will receive a minimum of 5,000 bonus points. Along with the points earned from the original two qualifying stays, the bonus will give the member enough points to redeem for a free night on a future stay at most Choice brand hotels throughout the U.S. There is no limit on the number of times travelers can earn free nights during the promotion, which launches February 1 and ends April 30.
“On its own, our `Stay Twice, Earn a Free Night` promotion is an incredibly compelling value proposition for business and leisure travelers,” said Wayne Wielgus, senior vice president, marketing for Choice Hotels. “By setting no limits on the number of times travelers can earn free nights, we`re making it almost impossible for value-conscious travelers to stay anywhere but at Choice Hotels` brands this spring.”
Travelers who prefer to collect airline miles/credits may opt for a different bonus. Between February 12 and April 30, guests who provide their airline frequent flier number at checkin will receive double miles/credits, or 500 miles/ 1 credit per stay instead of the standard 250 miles/ .5 credits. Participating airline programs include the America West Airlines(R) FlightFund(R), American Airlines(R) AAdvantage(R) program, Continental Airlines(R) OnePass(R), Delta SkyMiles(R), Northwest Airlines(R) WorldPerks(R), Southwest Airlines(R) Rapid Rewards(R), United(R) Mileage Plus(R) or US Airways(R) Dividend Miles(R). This offer cannot be combined with the Stay Twice, Earn a Free Night promotion.
In addition to redeeming points for room nights, Choice Privileges members may use their points toward gift certificates from more than 100 national and 400 regional retailers and restaurants. The Choice Privileges program also offers members special benefits such as express reservations, express check-in, complimentary room upgrade (upon availability), free local phone calls and incoming faxes, complimentary newspaper and extended check-out.
Travelers may learn more about the advantages and join the Choice Privileges rewards program by visiting, calling 888.770.6800 or by inquiring at the front desk of any Comfort Inn, Comfort Suites, Quality, Sleep Inn, Clarion or MainStay Suites brand hotel in the U.S.
Ads publicizing the “Stay Twice. Earn a Free Night.” promotion will run in national print and broadcast media, including USA TODAY, CNN, and other major media outlets.
