Choice Hotels International is reminding travelers that there's an easy way to plan and book hotel stays.
The "Badda Book, Badda Boom" campaign highlights the benefits of booking direct at ChoiceHotels.com. It features a character, Mr. B., who demonstrates the simplicity of the booking process, says Robert McDowell, chief commercial officer for Choice Hotels.
"The concept was introduced last year and proved successful as direct bookings to ChoiceHotels.com have increased and grown faster than other channels,” McDowell says in a release. “As a result, we're expanding our presence this year and leveraging Mr. B across digital assets for the first time, including social media, video and high impact banners, to connect with more consumers.”
Created by McCann New York, the campaign includes a range of media across national markets. Each spot brings humor to the forefront while reinforcing the message that consumers always receive the lowest price guaranteed when they book at ChoiceHotels.com. The campaign also includes ads that highlight seasonal promotions and individual hotel brand offerings.
The company's Choice Privileges loyalty rewards program is highlighted in the campaign. The free program has experienced a surge in new memberships and program engagement with the increase in direct bookings, according to the company. Members can earn and redeem points towards free nights at participating hotels.
