Baymont Inn & Suites Launches "Noteworthy Neighbors" Initiative

PARSIPPANY, NJ--(Marketwire - May 1, 2012) - To celebrate its hometown hospitality philosophy, the Baymont Inn & Suites® hotel brand today announced the launch of "Noteworthy Neighbors," a Facebook-based contest and sweepstakes designed to recognize the notable deeds of people who are a positive influence in their community.

Baymont Inn & Suites fans can nominate worthy members of their communities on the brand's Facebook page at www.facebook.com/baymontinns by demonstrating, in 100 words or less, the positive impact nominees have made in their hometowns. Three entrants and their nominees will be chosen by a panel of judges to receive $1,000 each. In addition, every week for eight weeks, an eligible entrant will be selected randomly to win 50,000 Wyndham Rewards® points, which can be redeemed for free nights, flights and gift cards. The contest runs through July 1, 2012.

"The Noteworthy Neighbors contest and sweepstakes is a great way for the Baymont brand to acknowledge the contributions of neighbors helping neighbors," said Patrick Breen, Baymont Inn & Suites brand senior vice president. "At a time when good deeds often go unnoticed, the Baymont family of hotels wish to say 'Thank you!' to those neighbors that embody the spirit of hometown hospitality."
