Hotel Results and Did You Win?

Written by Charlie

There was a lot more interest in the Hilton Gold status than I would have imagined! I appreciate all of you who entered and mentioned your favorite hotels.

One of the reasons I enjoy doing giveaways is for this reason – I learn quite a bit from everyone! There are some hotels on the list that I might never have even thought of and now you put them on my mind, thank you!

Favorite Hotel Results

Given the large amount of answers and different hotels, I thought it would be interesting to see what the results all ended as far as what hotels were the favorites.

There were quite a few hotels from smaller brands, which I liked as I was introduced to some new places and some great views from them! Here is a breakdown:

The Park Hyatt Tokyo
