With so many people flying home this holiday season, flight delays and cancellations are inevitable, leaving down-on-their-luck travelers looking for hotels in unfamiliar cities.

Well, Wyndham Hotels & Resorts has teamed up with Lowes to offer a free stay in a room decked-out with holiday cheer and coziness that can soothe even the most frustrated of flyers.
