From adding more upscale hotel offerings to its family of participating hotel brands to offering two, new co-branded credit cards, the award-winning loyalty program continues to expand member opportunities and benefits
ROCKVILLE, Md., September 26, 2023 - Choice Hotels International, Inc. (NYSE: CHH) announced that Choice Privileges now offers food ordering and delivery through a collaboration with Grubhub, a leading online and mobile food-ordering and delivery platform, to guests during stays at 500 participating Choice Hotels. As part of a continued reinvigoration of the award-winning loyalty program, Choice Privileges is expanding rewards and opportunities for guests during their travels.
Guests at participating midscale and extended stay Choice hotels brands, including Everhome Suites, Clarion Pointe, Comfort Inn, Mainstay Suites and Sleep Inn properties, will be able to access Grubhub's network of more than 365,000 restaurants and convenience offerings. To order, guests will be able to access a branded ordering and delivery experience within the Grubhub app while on the hotel's property and are able to receive two free months of Grubhub+, Grubhub's loyalty program that provides diners access to unlimited $0 delivery on orders of $12+.
"We are always looking to expand opportunities for Choice Privileges members, and we strive to focus on benefits that will add additional value for our members," said Julie Purser, vice president, loyalty strategy and membership rewards, Choice Hotels. "Offering $0 delivery fees with Grubhub enriches the guest experience at these participating hotels as it provides logistical and financial ease to guests seeking food delivery."
"Whether guests are traveling for work, relaxation or fun, we want to be their go-to delivery provider that keeps them fed no matter where they are," said Rob DelaCruz, vice president and general manager of Onsite Hospitality at Grubhub. "We're excited to offer a convenient and seamless ordering and delivery experience for Choice Hotel guests that allows them to explore the flavors of local communities across the country."
This expansion of Choice Privileges member benefits follows several other recent efforts to reinvigorate the loyalty program. Earlier this year, Choice launched two co-brand credit cards - the Choice Privileges Select Mastercard and Choice Privileges Mastercard - to offer travelers more ways to accelerate the amount of Choice Privileges points they earn while staying at participating Choice Hotels and on everyday spending like gas, groceries and home goods.
In July, Choice Hotels completed the successful integration of the Radisson Rewards Americas loyalty program into the Choice Privileges program. This enables the nearly 60 million Choice Privileges members to earn and redeem points at over 7,000 Choice-branded hotels across a diverse portfolio of brands.
The integration of Radisson Rewards Americas into Choice Privileges expanded member benefits to include complimentary breakfast for members with Diamond status at Radisson Blu, Radisson, Radisson RED, and Park Plaza hotels. Additional member benefits include:
