What’s the best way to show the world that you’re a veteran traveler? Sport a fashionable IndependentTraveler.com T-shirt, of course! Play our perennially popular How Much Is This Hotel? game, and you could win said T-shirt, which looks great with jeans and a Cruise Critic fanny pack (that’s our sister site, in case you haven’t heard).

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’ve added 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:

Here are three hints to help you win that T-shirt:

-This room is part of a restored Victorian home that dates back to the 1860’s.

-This hotel is located in the largest city in the only U.S. state whose name has just one syllable.

-A hot breakfast is included in the rate.

We’re looking for the maximum nightly price for two people as listed on the property’s Web site, excluding holidays, coupon codes or package rates. Enter your answer by Sunday night, June 19, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time to win. We’ll contact the winner and reveal the answer on Monday.
