At a time when business travelers can use all the help they can get, the Wingate® by Wyndham hotel brand this summer is soliciting tips from “road warriors” in return for the chance to win a trip to New York City to see a Yankees baseball game, concert or comedy show and star in a radio commercial.

Three New York trips will be awarded for the best tips of the month submitted for June, July and August. Second-place winners for each month will receive XM Pioneer Inno® portable satellite radios including a one-year subscription to XM Satellite Radio service. Third-place winners for each month will receive a TomTom® global positioning system.

First-place winners may be featured in 30-second Wingate by Wyndham radio commercials to air nationally on the XM network and will receive a two-night stay at the Wingate by Wyndham Manhattan hotel or equivalent; two tickets to the Yankees game or concert or comedy show; and $2,500 for airfare, other transportation and meals.

Travelers are invited to submit their tips online at, where they will be asked to complete a form requesting their names, e-mail address and mailing address and a description of their travel tip up to 500 characters. The contest continues until Aug. 31. Entrants are encouraged to review rules posted on the site.

Travel tips will be judged by the Wingate by Wyndham marketing staff, who will consider each tip’s cleverness and appropriateness for business travel.

Visitors to the contest site also may register for a sweepstakes that will award a $50 gas card to one lucky winner each week through Aug. 31. To register, visitors should click on the “$50 Gas Card” graphic shown in the attaché case.

“We’re rallying our guests to help each other by sharing tips that can make travel less of a hassle,” said Bill Hall, Wingate by Wyndham brand senior vice president. “There are no greater experts than Wingate by Wyndham guests, with their millions of miles and decades of travel experience.”

Wingate by Wyndham hotels, members of the Wyndham Worldwide family of hotel brands (NYSE: WYN), cater to business travelers by offering the services and amenities they expect at no additional charge, including a hot breakfast with freshly made Belgian waffles, copying and printing in 24-hour business centers, wired and wireless Internet service, meeting space and exercise facilities and whirlpools.
