The Irving-based midprice hotel chain has created a ring tone to match the
catchy "La La La" music from its ads and eight customizable wake-up calls that

Both are free, but standard messaging and air time fees may be assessed by
mobile phone companies.

and being the bright spot at the end of the traveler's tunnel."
