Hotel Monteleone Announces Final 125th Anniversary Trip Giveaway
“History, Holidays and the Hotel Monteleone” includes round-trip airfare to New Orleans and two-night stay

New Orleans, LA (September 7, 2011) On September 7 at 10:00 a.m. (CST), the Hotel Monteleone launched its second and final social media-based trip giveaway that ties in with the 125th Anniversary themes of tradition and holidays. The contest, “History, Holidays and the Hotel Monteleone,” will end on November 4 at 11:59 p.m. (CST).

The grand prize includes two round-trip tickets to New Orleans from any location in the continental United States, a two-night stay* of the winner’s choice in a suite at the Hotel Monteleone, a signed copy of the Hotel’s 125th Anniversary history book, Hotel Monteleone: More Than a Landmark, The Heart of New Orleans Since 1886, and a set of limited edition 125th Anniversary Mignon Faget cocktail glasses.

“Our first contest, Life, Literature & the Hotel Monteleone, was a huge success and really focused on the literary history of the Hotel,” said Andrea Thornton, director of sales and marking for the Hotel Monteleone. “The Hotel Monteleone is the oldest family-owned hotel in New Orleans, so we wanted to highlight traditions and family during our last anniversary contest. We couldn’t think of a better time to do this than right before the holidays – the time of the year when traditions are family are so important.”

It’s easy to enter. First, anyone interested should visit the Hotel Monteleone’s Facebook Page at and click “Like” if they are not already a fan. Next, click contest on the Left sidebar. Then, contestants must enter their first and last names, state and email address. That’s it. The Hotel Monteleone will randomly select a winner at the end of the contest period on November 4 and will announce the winner on November 9 through Facebook.

Contestants must be at least 21 years old at the time of entry and must be a legal resident of the continental United States. The prize is valid through 2012, but the winner must book the trip before December 31, 2011. *Room dates are based on availability and exclude holidays. Additional details and contest rules are available on the Hotel Monteleone’s Facebook page.
