Following its recent acquisition of the La Quinta hotel brand, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts revealed new benefits for members of its Wyndham Rewards loyalty program and members of La Quinta Returns, specifically 1:1 point transfer between the two programs and complimentary status match.

Available immediately, the move enables members of both programs—more than 56 million in Wyndham Rewards and more than 13 million in La Quinta Returns—to take advantage of a wide range of benefits at a combined portfolio of nearly 9,000 hotels around the world as Wyndham works to integrate La Quinta and its La Quinta Returns members into the Wyndham Rewards program by the second quarter of 2019.

“The addition of a brand like La Quinta carries tremendous benefit for all Wyndham Rewards members, not the least of which is expanded access to approximately 900 high-quality, midscale hotels across the globe,” Eliot Hamlisch, VP of worldwide loyalty and partnerships at Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, said in a statement. “As our teams work diligently to ensure a smooth integration of the brand into the Wyndham Rewards program, we felt it critically important to enable members of both programs to feel the benefits of the acquisition right away. That starts today with 1:1 point transfer and status match, and in the coming months, will continue as members start seeing La Quinta hotels in their search results on WyndhamRewards.com.”
