World’s sunniest hotel brand offers two Solar Sun-terns a shared $10,000 payday

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Feb. 21, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — The stars have aligned for thrill-seekers and solar eclipse enthusiasts. Days Inn® by Wyndham, the iconic economy hotel brand known for making days brighter, is seeking two adventurous BFFs to take on 2024’s hottest gig: the Solar Sun-ternship. One ‘sun and moon’ duo will embark on an unforgettable journey to witness the 2024 total solar eclipse from a private helicopter experience, giving an unparalleled vantage point of the path of totality. The twist? Capture their experience with photo and video content to share with Days Inn guests on social media. Best of all, the coveted job comes with a $5,000 payday for each Sun-tern.

“Since 2018, our Sun-ternship program has helped travel-obsessed photographers Seize the Days® with once-in-a-lifetime travel opportunities. This year, we’re elevating the job to new heights, giving not just one but two Sun-terns a front-row seat to capture and share the magic of the eclipse.”

–     John Henderson, President, Days Inn by Wyndham

The Sun, Moon, and Days Inn
Winding its way across 200-miles, traversing five North American time zones like a celestial ribbon, the path of totality – the area where the solar eclipse is most visible – crosses through major cities like San Antonio, Little Rock, Cleveland, and Montreal. A rare celestial spectacle, the April 8 event is a once in a generation occurrence, with the next total eclipse not anticipated until 2044.

While only two lucky individuals will claim the role of Sun-terns, between one and four million Americans are estimated to travel for the Eclipse. Thankfully, Days Inn and its sister-brands across the Wyndham family offer a combined 1,200+ hotels with unrivaled viewing spots across North America—meaning anyone who wants a chance to witness the cosmic marvel, has the chance to do so.  A list of top viewing locations is available at www.wyndhamhotels.com/eclipse.
