"Many of our guests enjoy using Wyndham products during their stay and want to relive that experience at home or gift the experience to a friend or family member," said Kevin Rupert, Wyndham vice president of marketing and strategy. "Now they can bring the comfort, functionality and innovation from our guest rooms to their homes."

The site was relaunched to reflect a host of new products introduced to Wyndham hotels in the last two years, as part of the brand's reimaging campaign designed to enhance Wyndham guest room and public spaces with useful amenities and services.

The Wyndham Smart Chair, a combination lounge chair and workstation created exclusively for the brand by the Michael Graves Design Group of Princeton, N.J., is designed for work or play with a built-in power source, Internet port, pivoting tables and document storage space.

The eco-conscious lamps, also designed by Michael Graves, feature energy-saving light bulbs, flexible necks and built-in electrical outlets ideal for quick notebook plug-ins.

The Graves-designed ice bucket offers a slanted design that allows individual ice cubes to pour from the bucket. A double-wall design with a removable insulating liner slows ice melting and makes clean-up easy.

Created with a fragrance to appeal to both men and women, the True Blue Spa line at Wyndham hotels includes Best Tressed balancing shampoo and conditioner, Grin & Bare It™ skin-quenching body lotion and Better Lather than Never™ bubble bath and shower cream, packaged in easy-to-use squeeze tube bottles with flip-top lids for a no-fuss spa experience.

The Wyndham At Home retail program is promoted in all Wyndham guest rooms and on the brand's Web site. The site will be regularly updated will additional products and amenities.

The free Wyndham ByRequest® program offers complimentary benefits including a choice of welcome snack and beverage, preferred pillow type, high-speed Internet access, express check-in, guaranteed late check-out, local and long-distance calls, best available room upon arrival, photocopies, faxes and online receipts.

Wyndham ByRequest members also earn Wyndham Rewards® points, which can be redeemed for free hotel stays, airline tickets, name-brand merchandise and dining and shopping gift cards, among other options. In lieu of points, members may elect to earn airline or rail miles with a variety of partners.
