We will be announcing our Stupid Tourist Story Contest winners soon.  There is some internal disagreements of which story is the best.  If you did not get a chance to enter, don’t worry.  Hampton Hotels has just announced the Hampton Chain of Friends Sweepstakes.

Imagine this… Win one weekend for you and 100 of your friend at a Hampton Hotel. That’s practically the entire hotel for you!  The sweepstake is open to residents of the 50 US, DC, Canada (excluding Quebec), UK and Mexico.  You don’t have to be Hilton Honors members or have previously stayed at a Hampton. Plus, there is no purchase necessary.  Not enough? Well, Hampton Hotels will throw in $5,000 to cover the taxes for the weekend.

My hotel of choice would be the Niagara Falls Hampton Inn.   We’d spend the day at the Niagara Falls Waterpark, and all of the Falls Avenue attractions such as Adventure City, the Hershey Chocolate shop, and Clifton Hill. At night we’d watch the Niagara Falls fireworks and spend the rest of the night at the Casino, which is conveniently located directly across the street from the hotel. If I win I’d definitely invite all my friends and a few readers who comment on this post (hint, hint).  But if you win, please put me on your guest list?

Contest Ends:  9/4/2010
