To celebrate their 200th location, Hyatt Place is giving away “200 nights in 200 hours” via contest on social media. I know, I know, I roll my eyes at some contests too, but I actually entered this one since it was quick and painless. From August 18th – August 26th if you share a photo of or at a Hyatt Place via Twitter, Instagram, or Foursquare/Swarm then you can win a free Hyatt Place night if you are one of the selected daily or grand prize winners. It sounds like 24 winners are selected each day for eight days and there are also eight grand prize winners, all of which receive a free Hyatt Place night.
This isn’t a random contest, but instead winners are selected based on: creativity of photo (50%) & extent to which photo captures Hyatt Place brand (50%). Limit 1 use of same photo per contest. You need to tag your photos with #HyattPlace” and “#HPEntry”.
I have much better photos at all Hyatt brands other than Hyatt Place, but I used what I had since you can’t win if you don’t play. If you happen to have a stay at a Hyatt Place in the next week or so then maybe you can snap a picture and try to win a free night. I actually have won a free night via a similar photo contest once already this year, so I have a little renewed faith in throwing my hat into the contest ring every now and then.
I like free hotel nights, and would be thrilled to get a night at a Hyatt Place somewhere like Honolulu, Austin, Washington DC, South Bend, or New York City.
Here are some of the official rules, but head here for full details.
(1) Take a Photograph. First, take a Photograph. Any Photograph you submit in this Promotion must be taken by you. Your Photograph should emphasize the Hyatt Place brand. This could be accomplished by including images of buildings or articles bearing the HYATT PLACE trademark, images capturing distinctive Hyatt Place trade dress, or images taken in an identifiable location within a Hyatt Place hotel. How you elect to capture the Hyatt Place brand is up to you. However, if you enter your Photograph into a Contest, your Photograph will be judged, in part, by the extent to which you capture the Hyatt Place brand, as detailed below in the “Winner Selection” section.
(2) Post your Photograph as part of an Entry Post on Twitter or Instagram or as part of an Entry Check-In on Foursquare. You may enter each Contest in any or all of three ways: through Twitter, through Instagram, or through Foursquare.
(a) Twitter & Instagram. To enter any Contest using Instagram or Twitter, during the applicable Contest Period, post a tweet from your Twitter account or a post from your Instagram account that includes (i) your Photograph and (ii) the Required Hashtags “#HyattPlace” and “#HPEntry” (in either case, an “Entry Post”). Your Entry Post will appear on your Twitter or Instagram feed, as applicable.
