Online food delivery platform DoorDash recently announced that it was partnering with Wyndham Hotels and Resorts to offer hotel guests at more than 3,700 U.S. hotels free delivery. Among its many properties, Wyndham Hotels owns Baymont Inn & Suites, Days Inn, Howard Johnson’s, Super 8, Travelodge, and Hawthorn Suites. DoorDash currently operates in more than 4,000 cities in the United States and Canada. This collaboration furthers DoorDash’s commitment to meeting customers wherever they are.
To kick off the program, at select Super 8, La Quinta, Days Inn, and other Wyndham properties, DoorDash customers will receive $5 off their first order and free delivery (before taxes and gratuity) when they use a promo code. Additionally, customers will receive 250 bonus points toward their next stay through Wyndham’s guest loyalty program, Wyndham Rewards.
Recently the battle for market share in the roughly $17 billion food delivery industry has been heating up. Uber Eats, Grubhub, and DoorDashEach are vying to create new partnerships as a way of expanding their companies’ reach. Earlier this year, DoorDash collaborated with GM’s Cruise to pilot food and grocery delivery using driverless cars in in the Bay Area. During the first four months of 2019, Postmates expanded to 1,000 new cities. This spring Uber Eats began accepting Apple Pay. Customers now expect restaurants to have several different convenient methods of ordering available. Is your restaurant being left behind?
