We know you love Photo Friday, but today we’re introducing a new game — and we’re raising the stakes with a fabulous prize.
Guess the maximum standard nightly rate of the hotel room pictured below. Enter your guess in the comments, and be sure to include a valid e-mail address (so we can contact you in case you win). With a nod to “The Price Is Right,” we’re adding this condition: whoever guesses closest to the price of the room — without going over — wins a free IndependentTraveler.com T-shirt. Here’s the room:
You want a hint? Okay, okay. Here are three juicy little leads to help you win that T-shirt:
1. This hotel is located in the city where the novel “Gone With the Wind” was penned.
2. This room has a jetted granite tub in addition to a glass shower enclosure.
3. This historic hotel was built in the late 19th century.
Remember, we’re looking for the most expensive standard nightly rate listed on the hotel’s Web site; it’s likely the price of the room on a weekend during high season (no package rates, coupon codes or special holiday prices count). Enter your answer by Monday night, May 30 at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time to win. We’ll contact the winner and reveal the answer on Tuesday.
