It’s the most wonderful—and disorderly—time of the year.

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.

On one of the busiest travel days of the year, the evening before Thanksgiving, Wyndham has set-aside 50 free stays for travelers in need, hoping to evoke “home for the holidays” for stranded passengers in five of the biggest airports in the U.S.

File this information in your baggage, in case you find yourself stranded on the night of Wednesday, Nov. 23rd in one of these five airports: La Guardia in New York, LAX in Los Angeles, O’Hare in Chicago, DFW in Dallas, and Miami Int’l Airport.

Lowe’s will decorate the rooms to be winter wonderlands “to channel the magic of the holiday season”. Ten rooms will be available at each of the 5 major airports.

“We know that there are few things more frustrating than being stuck in an unfamiliar city during the holidays, away from the creature comforts of home, family and friends,” said Lowe’s marketing exec Jen Wilson. “We’re thrilled to have the chance to provide select travelers with a memorable holiday experience.”
