Additional business, personal use hotel discount now available for Purdue employees
Purdue has negotiated discounted room rates for employees with Drury Inn and Suites.
As a result, Drury Inn and Suites provides a chainwide 12% discount on rates. This discount is available for business and personal use. Some of the hotel’s amenities include free breakfast, free Wi-Fi and a loyalty rewards program.
The Lafayette location’s discounted rate starts at $99 + tax.
“We are excited to provide this opportunity for Purdue employees,” says Jessica Robertson, senior director of procurement. “It’s another example of how committed our procurement team is to reducing costs for the University and providing more opportunities for the campus community.”
More information about the Drury Inn and Suites discount can be found on the Purdue Travel website. Additional information about all business and personal use Purdue travel discounts for airfare, airport parking and car rentals is also available online.
For business travel, employees or their travel delegates are encouraged to book arrangements through Concur or Anthony Travel, Purdue’s partnering travel agent service, at 765-496-8747 or email@example.com. Discounted rates are automatically applied when booking through these two methods.
As a reminder, travel guidelines remain in effect for faculty, staff and students who are traveling for work or in connection with a course or student activity. More information about these guidelines can be found on the Protect Purdue website.
Additionally, Purdue Travel is centralizing the creation of expense reports in phases beginning Aug. 30. Departments should continue creating expense reports for business travel via Concur until their phase is implemented.
