“Aligning with VOILÀ is a result of our desire to develop the best all-around experience for our guests,” said Steven Senft, Principal of CRU Property Management, the management company of the Parkway Plaza Hotel. “Parkway Plaza Rewards is launching at an exciting time as we are finishing the first phase of our renovation and in the industry there’s a marked increase in hotel stays. We are confident that with VOILÀ’s customer service capabilities and robust CRM we will exceed our guests’ expectations and help us to build a strong, direct relationships.”
The recently renovated Parkway Plaza perfectly captures the spirit of Wyoming. The spacious hotel is located on over 21 acres along the North Platte River in Casper, the second-largest city in Wyoming. The hotel’s 301 elegantly appointed renovated rooms, including 30 suites, boasts triple sheet luxurious linens and duvet, flat-screen HDTV’s, ergonomic desk chairs, granite bathroom countertops and kitchenettes with microwaves and refrigerators and complimentary upgraded Wi-Fi. Additionally, the Parkway Plaza offers over 43,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space including the 6,984 sq. ft. Grand Ballroom and the newly renovated 7,140 sq. ft. Grand Exhibit Hall. On-site dining options include the Parkway Café or the All That Jazz lounge and room service. Other amenities include a heated swimming pool, spa, sauna, 18-hole miniature golf course and airport shuttle.
“Loyalty programs have become one of the most significant deciding factors when guests select a hotel,” said Peter Gorla, managing director of VOILÀ Hotel Rewards. “Travelers are also willing to pay higher rates for hotels that reward them with points for their business. Without a loyalty program like VOILÀ, independent hotels are forced to rely heavily on OTAs and travel agents whose commissions cut heavily into their profit margins.”
Depending on the season, outdoor enthusiasts will find fly fishing, hunting, hiking, biking, rock climbing, rodeos, white water rafting, kayaking, golfing, skiing, snowboarding or snowmobiling nearby. Those seeking culture will enjoy Casper’s more than 20 museums featuring everything from history to geology to the arts. The region also boasts an award-winning symphony orchestra and numerous community theatre groups, outdoor music festivals and shopping opportunities.
“We are delighted to have created a co-branded reward program for Parkway Plaza,” continued Gorla. “Parkway Plaza Rewards has been tailored to make guests feel welcome so they can earn and redeem awards whenever they visit and experience the impressive sights of Wyoming and Parkway Plaza’s warm hospitality.”
VOILÀ, the world’s number one loyalty program for independent hotels, lets members enjoy rewards and earning opportunities at independent hotels and resorts around the globe. Instead of limiting earnings to one brand, members can travel to countless locations, stay at any participating VOILÀ hotel worldwide, and still earn points. VOILÀ points can be redeemed with a wide range of partners and for free hotel stays.
