Hotel Monteleone Announces Its First Getaway Giveaway Vacation Winner
Trip to New Orleans Includes Airfare and 2-Night Stay at Hotel Monteleone

New Orleans, LA (June 23, 2011) – The Hotel Monteleone, located in the heart of the New Orleans French Quarter, named Upland, Calif. resident Mary Mazurette as the winner of the Life, Literature & the Hotel Monteleone social media-based vacation giveaway.

The giveaway includes round-trip airfare to New Orleans, a two-night stay in one of the Hotel’s literary suites, a signed copy of the Hotel Monteleone’s history book, two monogrammed Hotel robes and Hotel Monteleone brand coffee. Mazurette, an employee in the automotive industry, plans to bring her mother on the trip.

“I’ve never been to New Orleans or the Hotel Monteleone, so I was thrilled when I found out that I won the contest,” said Mazurette. “I can’t wait to experience the culture, food and music, and want to thank the Monteleone for the chance to stay in such a historic hotel. This will be the trip of a lifetime for me and my mother.”

The giveaway was the first of two social media contests that the Hotel is hosting this year as part of its 125th anniversary celebration to highlight its rich culture. The themes of the two contests are literature and traditions respectively. The first contest, Life, Literature & the Hotel Monteleone, launched on February 1 and ran through April 25. Contestants entered the sweepstakes simply by “liking” the Hotel Monteleone on Facebook and entering their contact information on the sweepstakes entry form. Trip dates are flexible based on Hotel availability. The second contest will launch in the fall and will celebrate the Hotel’s history and traditions surrounding the holiday season.

“The two-part contest is a great opportunity for Hotel Monteleone to engage with our audience via social media,” said Andrea Thornton, director of sales and marketing at the Hotel Monteleone. “The Hotel appreciates the excitement and passion that visitors have for our city and is happy to bring someone here to experience New Orleans.”

For more information on the Hotel Monteleone or its social media contests including Life, Literature & the Hotel Monteleone, please visit www.hotelmonteleone.com or become a fan of Hotel Monteleone on Facebook.

Since 1886, the Hotel Monteleone, www.hotelmonteleone.com, has proudly stood as one of the first landmarks in the famous French Quarter. The hotel is the Quarter’s largest full-service hotel, featuring 600 comfortable, luxurious guestrooms and suites. Hotel Monteleone is within walking-distance of some of New Orleans most famous attractions and is conveniently located 11 miles from the Louis Armstrong International Airport. Hotel Monteleone is a member of the Preferred Hotels® & Resorts, a consecutive AAA Four Diamond award-winner, and has won the J.D. Power and Associates Upscale Hotel Award for “An Outstanding Guest Experience.” The Hotel Monteleone is celebrating its 125th anniversary in 2011.
