Wingate by Wyndham Makes Getting Around Easier


Hotel Brand Delivers Special Uber Offer to NYC Conference Goers

PARSIPPANY, N.J. – Fighting for a cab in an unfamiliar, bustling city can often be daunting. Wingate by Wyndham® is making that job easier for those attending the 35th Annual New York University (NYU) International Hospitality Investment Conference in New York City next week with a $20 discount on their first ride with on-demand car service provider Uber.

Uber provides a simple, efficient car service experience by allowing anyone to request a ride anytime in major cities via the company’s iPhone and Android apps, text message or the web. Licensed, insured drivers arrive to the customer’s specified pick-up location within minutes of the order; furthermore, customers can track the arrival status of their ride right from their mobile device.

Beginning June 2, 2013, through June 4, conference participants can request the Wingate by Wyndham discounted Uber ride by signing up online at, downloading the app or visiting on their mobile devices and using a promotional code. Attendees can then sit back, grab a coffee or continue conducting business, as they will receive a text message when drivers arrive curbside. After arrival, Uber will automatically charge the credit card on file, apply the discount and send a receipt via email.

“Helping people get around town easily allows us to offer a little something extra to hardworking conference goers,” said Bill Hall, brand senior vice president for Wingate by Wyndham. “The Wingate by Wyndham brand is all about making sure business travelers have everything they need while on the road – plus a few extras – for one simple, affordable rate. We’re excited to extend this philosophy to those visiting New York City to help them conduct their conference business with more ease and less stress.”

Attendees can get more information, including the Wingate by Wyndham Uber promotional code and a map of the city highlighting key destinations, by visiting the Wyndham Hotel Group table or hospitality suite during the conference. The offer is valid June 2 through June 4 for new riders only.
