Hotel Engine Partner Spotlight: Wyndham Hotels & Resorts
With 9,300 hotels in more than 80 countries and six continents, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts is the world’s largest hotel chain. With its vast network, it’s likely you’ve stayed at one or more of its 20 hotel brands, including Super 8®, Days Inn®, Ramada®, Microtel Inn & Suites®, La Quinta®, Baymont®, Wingate®, AmericInn®, Hawthorn Suites®, The Trademark Collection®, and Wyndham®.
As a partner with Hotel Engine for the last three years, Wyndham provides comprehensive and competitive rates to Hotel Engine members. From standard group travel for companies and government agencies to extended stay discounts for traveling nurses or state emergency management departments, Wyndham caters to different workforce needs with speed and flexibility.
With current travel restrictions and limitations in some areas, Wyndham has paused the expiration of its Wyndham Rewards points to ensure that all Gold, Platinum and Diamond members will automatically have their Member Level extended through December 31. Additionally, with the Hotel Engine Hotel Loyalty program, Wyndham Rewards members can also simultaneously accrue points in both programs.
An industry standard for health and safety
Early on in the pandemic, Wyndham, working closely with other hotel chains and the American Hotel and Lodging Association, led the development of industry-wide health and safety guidelines, which have been implemented across all of its hotels in North America.
At its properties across the U.S. and Canada, Wyndham launched its Count on Us initiative to prioritize safety with enhanced cleanliness protocols and an expanded partnership with Ecolab Inc., a leading provider of EPA-approved disinfectants, to provide a consistent supply of cleaning and disinfecting solutions. Additionally, the hotel has provided helpful guidelines and safety information as well as additional training to thousands of independently owned and operated franchised hotels in its network.
For guests, Wyndham provides disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizers during their stay. The hotel also requires masks and has implemented enhanced social distancing measures in public spaces. Their cleaning teams also conduct frequent cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch areas.
