The Winner of The Favorite Hotel Accessories Giveaway (and great answers)

This past weekend, I ran a giveaway for one of my favorite hotel accessories. To sum up, my favorite hotel accessories are my mini router and my Chromecast. However, I asked readers what their favorite travel accessories were and got some really great answers.

Believe it or not, I have not used packing cubes before. I always just nicely pack my carry-on and (for trips over two weeks) use compression bags for my clothes in my suitcase. But, given how many of you consider your packing cubes to be your favorite travel accessory, I definitely will be getting some to try!

Not only that, but there were many other great ideas given and I really appreciate the input. We had many readers chime in on the contest page and others over on Twitter – thanks to all of you for participating!

But, there is only one winner and the randomly selected winner was – reader Lois who said that her favorite travel accessory is her iPhone.

Definitely a must-have!

That is definitely a great travel accessory and I never go anywhere without mine! Congrats, Lois, and thank you! I will be in touch to find out which item you want, the router or the Chromecast.

Thank you to everyone else and please head on over to the contest page to see some of the great comments!
