Ramada Hotels are on the lower priced end of the hotel spectrum in the United States. With so many businesses feeling the crunch of higher fuel prices and an economy that is…in the toilet, your employer may be looking to save a buck on business travel expenses. The good thing about Ramada hotels is that they are inexpensive and they are everywhere. For frequent travelers, Ramada offers Wyndham Rewards. If you’ve been a member of the hotel’s TripRewards for ages, never fear. The change is in name only and will not affect any points balances you have accrued. Wyndham Rewards boasts being the largest hotel rewards program going. That’s easy to argue, as you can earn points at Wyndham, Ramada, Super 8, Days Inn, Wingate, Baymont Inn, Ho Jo, TraveLodge, Knight’s Inn and AmeriHost Inn.
