It’s fascinating to watch the development of in-room dining at hotels. A long time ago, for full-service hotels, the easy answer was always room service. For people like me, staying at a hotel, motel or Holiday Inn, it often consisted of looking in the phone book and finding a place to order a pizza or Chinese food. Hotels eventually wised up and started placing sponsored ads in the hotel rooms with local restaurants that delivered, making the phone book unnecessary.
Jump forward to today. Ordering food is just a few taps away on your phone. The number of food delivery services seems to be growing every day to the point where I can’t keep up. This shift is changing the landscape to where some hotels are even doing away with room service since guests are just ordering food to their rooms from local restaurants.

In May of 2018, Wyndham Worldwide acquired LaQuinta Holdings for 1.95 billion dollars and added 900 additional franchised hotels to their large portfolio, in what was one of the least publicized hotel mergers ever. While this merger was met with a collective yawn from the points and miles world, there is one date that you should pay attention to.
On April 3, 2019 the LaQuinta Rewards loyalty program will merge into the Wyndham Rewards program.
If you have any points in the LaQuinta Rewards program, you’ll want to transfer them to Wyndham Rewards by March 31st.
Why do you need to transfer your points by then? I’m glad you asked.
