Here's how one Welcome Rewards™ member spent their free night. Makes you wonder how you'd spend yours, doesn't it?
Our loyalty program, Welcome Rewards®, is for guests aged 18+ who signed up with a valid email address. When you book and stay 10 nights at eligible hotels, you’ll get 1 night free to redeem at another. We work out the average value of all the 10 nights you’ve collected and give it back to you as a free night. You just pay taxes and fees. And if you choose a room that costs more, you pay the difference. You can’t collect or redeem nights when you pay using a discount coupon or if you’re making a package booking. Read full terms and conditions.

The prize is awarded as ten (10) Welcome Rewards credits that will be added to the winner’s account within ten (10) business days. The prize is subject to the Welcome Rewards Terms and Conditions and does not cover hotel taxes or fees. If the night costs more than $200 USD/$200 CAD, the winner will be responsible for paying the difference. If the night costs less than $200 USD/$200 CAD, the winner will not be credited or refunded the difference. A winner is responsible for paying any applicable income taxes and any and all other costs and expenses not listed above. There is a limit of one (1) prize per person.

6. For Canadian Residents Only: In order to win a prize, a potential winner who is a resident of Canada must correctly answer (unaided) a mathematical skill testing question. If a potential winner does not correctly answer the question on the first attempt within three (3) business days of notification, he/she will forfeit the prize and Sponsor may select an alternate potential winner in his/her place in a random drawing of all remaining Welcome Rewards members. Only three (3) alternate entrants will be contacted.
7. General Conditions: In the event that the operation, security, or administration of the Sweepstakes is impaired in any way, Sponsor may, in its sole discretion, either: (a) suspend the Sweepstakes to address the impairment and then resume the Sweepstakes; or (b) award the prizes at random from among the eligible entries received up to the time of the impairment. Sponsor reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to disqualify and seek damages from any individual who tampers with the operation of the Sweepstakes, violates these Official Rules, or acts in a disruptive or unsportsmanlike manner. Sponsor’s failure to enforce any term of these Official Rules shall not constitute a waiver of that provision. Proof of sending any communication to Sponsor by mail shall not be deemed proof of receipt of that communication. The Sweepstakes is subject to federal, state, provincial, and local laws and regulations and is void where prohibited.
8. Release and Limitations of Liability: By participating in the Sweepstakes, you agree to release and hold harmless Sponsor, its parent, subsidiaries, affiliates, and each of their respective officers, directors, employees, and agents (the “Released Parties”) from and against any claim or cause of action arising out of participation in the Sweepstakes or receipt or use of any prize, including, but not limited to: (a) unauthorized human intervention in the Sweepstakes; (b) technical errors; (c) printing errors; (d) lost, late, postage-due, misdirected, or undeliverable mail; or (e) errors in the administration of the Sweepstakes or the processing of entries. You further agree that in any cause of action, the Released Parties’ liability will be limited to the cost of entering and participating in the Sweepstakes, and in no event shall the Released Parties be liable for attorney’s fees.

All issues and questions concerning the construction, validity, interpretation and enforceability of these Official Rules, your rights and obligations, or the rights and obligations of Sponsor in connection with the Sweepstakes, shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law rules (whether of the State of Texas or any other jurisdiction), which would cause the application of the laws of any jurisdiction other than the State of Texas.
