Another big win for the Choice Privileges loyalty program from Choice Hotels. For the second straight year, USA Today's 10Best Readers' Choice Awards has named Choice Privileges the "Best Hotel Loyalty Program." A panel of USA Today travel experts and 10Best editors developed the list of nominees. Readers voted to determine the rankings.
"It has been an exciting year for the Choice Privileges program. This recognition validates what matters to us most: that our members are benefitting from our new perks and program enhancements," said Jamie Russo, vice president of loyalty programs and customer engagement for Choice Hotels. "It is quite an honor to be recognized by industry experts and our membership base. We also want to thank our 33 million members for voting to name Choice Privileges the best hotel loyalty program."
Earlier this year, the Choice Privileges program was also honored with the prestigious Freddie 210 Award for Europe and received recognition from Loyalty 360.
