Candlewood Suites®, one of IHG’s (InterContinental Hotels Group) [LON: IHG, NYSE: IHG (ADRs)] brands catering to extended stay travelers, today announces its second annual “Candlewood Canines” Facebook contest. As a pet-friendly hotel brand, Candlewood Suites knows that travelers love their furry family members and appreciate taking them along on the road. In celebration of these canine companions, the “Candlewood Canines” contest honors our pet guests and the owners who love them.
“Our guests really consider us home when they are on the road,” said Robert Radomski, vice president, Brand Management, Staybridge Suites® and Candlewood Suites®. “For many, it takes having your pet with you to make a hotel suite more like home – and we encourage that. As a pet owner, I know that a good, long walk and a friendly greeting at the front door can make my day, and many of our guests feel that same way.”
Through September 30, fans of the Candlewood Suites brand page on Facebook are invited to upload and caption an image of their dog or dogs to the “Candlewood Canines” application tab. One lucky winner, whose photo is selected as fan favorite through online voting, will win a $10,000 donation to an animal-focused nonprofit organization of their choice.
Contest participation is available to residents of the U.S. and Canada only. For full terms and conditions, visit the contest page. For more information about the “Candlewood Canines” contest, or to enter a pet photo, visit the Candlewood Suites brand on Facebook at www.facebook.com/CandlewoodSuites.
