Every Friday, we’ll feature a photo of an unidentified hotel here, on our blog, and we want you to guess how much it costs to stay there. Leave your guess in the comments below and you could win a prize. Get the answer in your inbox by subscribing to our blog.
Can you guess the cost of a night in a historic Midwestern mansion? 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). The first person to guess closest to the price of the room without going over wins an IndependentTraveler.com T-shirt. Here’s the room:
And, as always, here are some hints to help you win:
-This room, which has two working fireplaces, a whirlpool tub and a private deck with rocking chairs, was originally the formal parlor and dining room in a 19th-century mansion.
-This historic property is located in a Midwestern former mining town where President Ulysses S. Grant once lived.
-A full breakfast, popcorn and cookies are included in the rates.
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 Monday night, October 10, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time to win. We’ll contact the winner and reveal the answer on Tuesday.
