You get free perks at the Smyth Tribeca with Want Me Get Me
A new hotel booking site called Want Me Get Me, launched today, perhaps trying to get inside the ring with sites like SniqueAway and Jetsetter.com in a battle to see who offers the best bang for the luxury travel buck.
The free, members-only hotel booking site, promises to give travelers “exclusive access to perks and amenities usually reserved for celebrities, rock stars, and platinum rewards status priority guests at the world’s best hotels,” according to today’s news release. It’s co- founded by Melanie Brandman, who owns a public-relations firm that represents some of the hotels on the list and has an advisory board that includes Kellie Pelletier, former director of communications at Jetsetter.com, Roberta Seiler, former director of partnership development at Jetsetter.com, and Brad Wilson, president of Ace Hotel.
The idea is that travelers who pay standard room rates at the 200 select luxury and boutique hotels on Want Me Get Me’s list will get VIP treatment and free perks. So far, we’re told these may be room upgrades, free WiFi, free valet parking, and even champagne upon arrival. Nice, but not quite as “exclusive” as it sounds. However, apparently those who book a hotel through Want Me Get Me get placed on the hotel GM’s VIP List, and those perks supposedly can be “quite lavish” and left up to the GMs discretion. Sounds super secretive!
