On June 5, Wyndham Rewards revealed a new loyalty partnership with Caesars Entertainment and its Total Rewards program. The partnership will allow members of each program to receive complimentary status matches, with more rewards to come later this summer, which is the first time any partner of Total Rewards has done status matches.

It will specifically allow Wyndham Rewards members to book Total Rewards destinations through the Wyndham Hotel Group, earn and redeem points at these Total Rewards locations in the U.S. and Canada, transfer points between Total Rewards and Wyndham Rewards, and bid on hotel, restaurant and entertainment experiences.

Both Wyndham Rewards and Caesars Entertainment's Total Rewards are thrilled about the partnership.

“For the last two years, we’ve been unrelenting in our efforts to build the world’s best rewards program, applying a laser-like focus to help our members experience travel where and how they want,” says Noah Brodsky, senior vice president of loyalty and engagement at Wyndham Hotel Group. “Whether it’s a hotel, a condo, a vacation home or now, a world-class resort like Caesars Palace, no other program offers their members the breadth, the simplicity or the generosity of Wyndham Rewards.”

Now, members of both programs can receive their complimentary status match by visiting www.wyndhamrewards.com/caesars. Members at different reward levels will be able to obtain the matching level in the other program, such as Platinum in Wyndham Rewards to Platinum in Total Rewards, Diamond in Wyndham Rewards to Diamond in Total Rewards. Finally, Total Rewards members at the Seven Stars level will match to Wyndham Rewards Diamond.

“Total Rewards continues to set the standard for loyalty within gaming and entertainment, and we’re always looking for likeminded partners to elevate member benefits,” says Michael Marino, senior vice president and chief experience officer, Caesars Entertainment. “With Wyndham Rewards, we’re giving our members access to an unparalleled portfolio of hotels, condos and homes and a fast track to elevated status with one of the world’s premier rewards programs.”

Remote working has become mainstream with the continued presence of COVID-19. While many people have welcomed the new normal of working from home, others miss the separation of spaces, as many corporate offices have remained closed since March. Without the daily obligation to go into the office, professionals have the ability to travel more freely. Hotels across the country are creating “work from hotel” deals–a play on “work from home”–so people can explore new places while still fitting in their 9 to 5.  

 

Choosing a career in the event industry is not for the faint of heart. Let’s face it: Event planning is stressful. The last-minute changes, demands from clients and surmounting urgency of a quickly approaching event can make it difficult to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

As a new mother, I’m right there with you and need just as much help developing a healthy work-life balance. In my experiences working in events, I’ve found the following to be helpful ways to care for my mental health, despite being in a stressful profession:

 

In light of COVID-19, a survey commissioned by the American Hotel and Lodging Association (AHLA) discovered that 44 percent of Americans are planning leisure trips or overnight travel before the end of 2020.
