Q&A Hotel Introduces 5% Cash Back on Direct Bookings
Enhances Friends with Benefits Loyalty Program
(New York, NY) May 22, 2018 – Q&A Residential Hotel, an extended-stay hotel by renowned temporary housing provider Furnished Quarters, today announced the addition of a 5% cash back incentive for guests who stay at the Lower Manhattan hotel and book direct. This exciting new incentive adds to Q&A’s already robust Friends with Benefits loyalty program, which includes a free room upgrade, late check-out, a complimentary welcome amenity and access to exclusive offers from local restaurants and attractions.
“Independent hotels need to do more to gain loyalty from guests and compete with big brands,” said Steve Brown, CEO of Q&A Hotel and Furnished Quarters. “In addition to offering huge, stylish suites and full-sized kitchens, we can now provide even more reasons for business travelers to stay with us when choosing accommodations.”
Powering the 5% cash back initiative is The Guestbook, the world’s largest rewards program for independent and boutique hotel brands. The Guestbook has quickly grown to become a popular loyalty tool for over 600 hotels looking to sway travelers to choose them and keep coming back. Guests can earn 5% cash back on their reservation total through PayPal, a gift card or a charitable donation. Members may also double their reward to 10% if they choose to redeem towards future stays at Guestbook hotels in other destinations.
“The Guestbook’s rewards platform was designed to celebrate the independent spirit in hospitality by augmenting the unique loyalty initiatives of our lodging partners,” said James Gancos, CEO and Founder of The Guestbook. “We are excited to add The Guestbook’s instant cash back rewards as an additional layer of value to Q&A’s innovative Friends with Benefits program.”
During an initial test phase, conversions increased by 25% whenever the reward program was visible to prospective guests. Due to the promising results, Q&A Hotel has rolled the program out to all guests who book direct.
