Hyatt Place Twitter Contest

Hyatt Place is celebrating the opening of their 200th location and has been giving away 200 free nights in 200 hours (Aug 18-26).

The contest called See It Share It is on Twitter, Instagram and Foursquare. Contestants were asked to post a photo of their favorite Hyatt Place. If the photos are chosen, the winners will be awarded a free night certificate.

We've actually been to several Hyatt Places in the past few years, including Hyatt Places in Riverside (CA), Ontario (CA), Boise (ID)Riverhead (NY), and Mohegan Sun (CT). The beauty of the Hyatt Place brand is that every property is almost identically consistent. So you know exactly what you're getting - a very large comfortable room a flat screen tv, free wifi and free breakfast every morning at a reasonable price. It caters to frequent business travelers and families who just need a place to sleep at night when they're traveling. In fact, it's probably going to be the official corporate hotel of our friend's small business, Five Star Painting IL.

To be a winner in the contest, you need to submit a photo that is representative of the Hyatt Place brand and tag it with #HyattPlace and #HPEntry.

We actually didn't have that many photos from our Hyatt Place stays, but I found one decent one from our 13 night stay in Boise, Idaho that gave you a sense of how large the room is. In fact, the photo doesn't even show you the equally large "livingroom" area with the full couch, desk and mini fridge/sink area.

It's not a first come-first serve situation as they select winners based on the quality of your photo, so make sure you have a pretty decent submission. As you can see from our winning submission, you don't need to be Ansel Adams to win.
