Choice Privileges “Triple Points” promotion for budget hotel travel with stays at Mainstay Suites, Suburban, Econolodge and Rodeway Inn. 

Promotion registration is not required; simply be sure to provide Choice Privileges membership number upon check-in.

Promotion Dates: September 1, 2008 – November 30, 2008

Terms:

·         Choice Privileges number must be provided upon check-in for stay eligibility.

·         Triple Points applies only to stays at Mainstay Suites, Suburban, Econolodge, and Rodeway Inn hotel brands for reservations made through ChoiceHotels.com or via Choice Hotels phone reservations at 1-800-4Choice and beginning with the 2nd stay. 

·         Mainstay Suites, Suburban, Econolodge, and Rodeway Inn regularly earn 5 points/$1 eligible hotel spending.  Triple points means 15 points/$1 during promotion. 

·         For stays booked through other channels, Choice Privileges members will earn double points (10 points/$1) beginning with the 2nd eligible stay.  All other terms are the same. 

[Loyalty Traveler note:  This is an anomaly for hotel loyalty programs which generally do not reward any points for stays booked outside the hotel corporation’s own reservations system.]

·         Promotion valid for stays in USA or Canada for the hotel brands Mainstay Suites, Suburban, Econolodge, and Rodeway Inn.

·         Promotion limited to Choice Privileges members with a USA address (or USA territories).

Choice Hotels is comprised of ten hotel brands: Cambria Suites, Clarion, Quality Inn, Comfort Suites, Comfort Inn, Sleep Inn, Mainstay Suites, Suburban, Econolodge and Rodeway Inn.   See my Choice Hotels blog post from June for an overview of the Choice Hotels brands and hotel loyalty program.

Earning Choice Privileges points is based on a two-tier system.  Mainstay Suites, Suburban, Econolodge, and Rodeway Inn earn 5 points/$1 eligible hotel spending and the other hotel brands earn 10 points/$1.  Average daily rates from the past year show the hotel brands of Mainstay Suites, Suburban, Econolodge, and Rodeway Inn are the least expensive hotel brands in the Choice Hotels system.

2007 average rates in USA for the Triple Points eligible Choice Privileges hotel brands:

Suburban Extended Stay $40.13/night  (54 hotels in USA)

Rodeway Inn $53.24  (276 hotels in USA)

Econolodge $54.40  (825 hotels in USA)
