Stash Hotel Rewards, the nation’s largest points-based rewards program for independent hotels, today welcomed three new Pennsylvania partner hotels – Bear Creek Mountain Resort, The Priory Hotel and Shadyside Inn All Suites Hotel. As with all Stash partner hotels, each new property provides travelers with a one-of-a-kind experience unique to the local culture. With these new additions, the Stash Rewards footprint grows to nearly 200 partner hotels across the United States – including 7 partner hotels throughout the state of Pennsylvania.
Bear Creek Mountain Resort, located an hour North of Philadelphia in Macungie, is a year-round family-friendly resort, boasting 21 ski trails, 7 miles of hiking trails and a 5-acre lake. Guests choose from 6 different room types designed to accommodate any getaway - from a family ski trip to a corporate retreat or summer mountain escape. Bear Creek Mountain Resort is an ideal resort for any occasion.
“We’re looking to Stash to help us establish an incentive program that can foster the continued growth of our group and meeting business,” said Rebecca Day, Hotel Manager at Bear Creek Mountain Resort. “Competing with the incentive programs offered by the large hotel brands in our area has been a challenge – but Stash allows us to get an even footing against those hotels, while providing added value for our already loyal guests.”
The Priory Hotel, a family-owned 42-room historic hotel, once home to a Benedictine Monastery, provides travelers with instant access to some of Pittsburgh’s most popular landmarks. PNC Park, Heinz Field and the Downtown district are all within walking distance, making the hotel an ideal choice for visitors who want an up-close Steel City experience.
“Stash Hotel Rewards was a perfect fit for the type of loyalty program we were looking to build,” said John Graf, President and CEO of The Priory Hotel. “We wanted to be a part of a program that allowed us to reward our loyal guests, while also aligning ourselves with like-minded hotels. Stash appeals to travelers who value a truly unique hotel experience – which is a hallmark of The Priory.”
Pittsburgh travelers visiting the city’s University District will appreciate the family-oriented accommodations offered at Shadyside Inn All Suites Hotel, an extended-stay hotel located just minutes from the University of Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon, and Chatham University campuses. From the welcome goodie bag that guests receive upon check in to complementary bicycle access, Shadyside Inn is known for its exceptional service and hospitality.
“We want our guests to feel enveloped in comfort and care when they stay with us,” said Jonathan Plesset, CEO at Shadyside Inn. “We operate in a market that is dominated by large chain hotels, so we work hard to maintain a unique guest-centric culture to help differentiate us from the competition – and Stash fits that culture perfectly.”
