This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hampton Hotels. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hampton Hotels are holding a giveaway in which you could win an entire hotel for a weekend!  That’s 100 rooms for 2 nights!  Why all the extra rooms?  Because you get to invite friends to fill them up!

The giveaway is called the  Hampton Chain of Friends Sweepstakes. The whole hotel for a weekend isn’t the only prize they are offering.  They are also giving away free 2 night stays for you and 3 friends.  They will give away (1) free 2 night stay every day for the next 100 days.  That’s a ton of chances to win a small FREE vacation.

To get a chance:
Simply go here and fill out the information to enter. You can enter daily for the “you and 3 friends” prize so go for it!!

I’m not sure where I would go if I won.  We live an hour and half from both mountains and the beach.  So I’m torn…  go to the Hampton Inn at the Historic District in Charleston or Hampton Inn at the Biltmore Square.  I have so little free time to just hang out with friends that this would be awesome!  We all need time away with friends (esp. us stay at home moms).  You wanna come if I win the whole hotel?

What area of the country would you pick if you won a whole hotel for a weekend??

    • Jared

      Colorado or Santa Fe, New Mexico

    • Benjamin

      Biltmore sounds great! :D

    • Peggy

      Boone, NC area

    • Holt_heather

      I would pick either the Biltmore Hampton or the Hampton Inn and Suites in Mount Plesant at the IOP connector.

      • Susan

        I LOVE that Hampton Inn at the IOP connector, too. My first choice!

    • Emily

      Anywhere near the beach! Us working mothers are in desperate need of time away with friends, too!!!!!

    • katclyde

      I would also have to say the Hampton Inn at the Historic District in Charleston. My friend is getting married at the Visitor's Center in October (& I'm a bridesmaid). It would be great to stay almost right across the street from all the festivities!

    • Ann

      I would choose Myrtle Beach, SC because my daughter is constantly begging us to take her to the beach for the first time. I went there every summer when I was a child and loved it.

    • Adhollan

      NYC would be my first choice and then Savannah, GA

    • JulieB

      I would choose Hilton Head Island, SC!

    • griffins00

      Yes, please invite me if you win!! :) I don't care where…I just need to get away!

    • Melody M

      We are in Tampa. Beach weekend for sure!

    • Yanina

      Boston, MA

    • Missthemister

      You should choose the Historic Charleston one. I stayed there twice for a training class and it's very nice.

    • Christina

      Absolutely anywhere in Charleston, SC! My favorite place to go! We already live in the mountains, I would need to see some ocean!

    • Holdgate04

      Definately the Biltmore. I live in Charleston :)

    • Laurie

      OOOoooooooo either one sounds great! If I had to choose I guess I'd go for Charleston
      first. Last November we finally had a chance to stay a night in Charleston on our way
      from south GA to NC to visit with family at Thanksgiving. I loved it and would love to
      spend more time there. Thanks for thinking of us!!

    • Emlolatigg

      I live in Charleston, so a nice weekend getaway for me would be the mountains! :)

    • irmolees

      I would pick Colorado .. torn between Denver and Colorado Springs .. but so much to do and so many places to see and such a wonderful climate (GREAT getaway for us in the south who SWELTER in humidity and heat for so many months)! So fun!

    • Jennifer

      I would pick TN, because my sister-in-law is getting married there & that would allow all guests to be able to attend the wedding there without hotel expense.

    • Cindy

      I would pick Historic District in Charleston. There is so much to see, plus there are several beaches.

    • Kaminer317

      i would be happy anywhere…just to get away for a weekend would be wonderful! :)

    • Leah_in_SC

      I would pick Charleston. It's one of my favorite places to travel, even though I'm only a few hours away. It's also fairly close for most of the people I would invite. I would love to go if you win…and if I win, I will save a room for you and your family! =)

    • Sherilturner

      The beach, the beach!!!!

    • renee006

      I'd pick Charleston, hands down! Not only do they have the beach, but I could just spend hours walking around downtown (King Street)!! I actually stayed at the Hampton in in Charleston a couple of years ago for my birthday, but there was a tornado!!!

    • Marsh5462

      I would choose the mountains because my husband and I didn't get to go on a honeymoon and we have always wanted to go there! :)

    • Kamnsc

      Hard to choose, but probably the mountains. We love the mountains of NC!

    • Beth Arp

      Definitely the ocean, hopefully not full of oil!

    • Eerporter

      Definitely Washington DC

    • Dingram4

      I would pick the beach….Any beach…

    • kristin

      I'd be happy to stay right in town if it meant I got to sleep in on a Saturday morning!

    • Anne

      oooh yes! I would love to come! Thanks for asking!!

    • Lisa

      The beach for sure!! i am lucky enough to live in the beautiful nc mountains!! i need to feel the sand between my toes!! My 30th bday is this year, it would be so awesome to take all my family/friends to the beach to celebrate with me!!! fingers crossed!! lol

    • Sweetk3346

      I would take everyone in my family- everyone at work- and all of my closest fiends to the BEACH!!!!

    • Courtneyjoella

      We live near the beach in Florida so that's old news…but the whole family LOVES Savannah, Georgia. It would be a blast to have everyone together in that lovely, charming neck of the woods!

    • Jennifer

      Biltmore Estates! Hands Down! Love that place….I live in Greenville and go often…P.S. Send me some wine when you go ;)

    • earlydawn

      Anywhere on the Atlantic coast. My two little girls have never seen the ocean (or a beach for that matter!)

    • Bethmgriffith

      I wonder if they would allow the winner to pocket 200 nights to use at leisure rather than book 100 rooms for 2 nights? Now that would be a real prize! I wouldn't have to pay for a hotel room again for decades!

    • Robin3girls

      We would go to a southern beach

    • Paige

      From their website:

      PrizeS: One (1) Grand Prize: two hundred (200) Be My Guest Certificates. Each certificate is valid for a one-night stay at a Hampton Inn hotel worldwide. Certificate valid for room rate and corresponding room rate taxes only on a standard room (double occupancy) and does not apply to incidental charges or gratuities. Approximate Retail Value (“ARV”) is US$22,600.

      So it looks like 200 certificates. Hmmm, That means if you win, you could do the beach with 50 friends for 2 mights and then a trip to the mountains too with 50 friends for 2 nights, I have never been to Charleston and would vote to go their from all of the wonderful things I've heard, but I love the beach too!

    • Jpark99

      My whole family at the beach!!

    • Eadonham21

      anywhere but here

    • meme

      If the comment below is true and they offer anywhere in the world, then here we go to France. The whole family for a reunion with my daughter's family we haven't seen in four years. I have also entered the Jose Ole Party Prize for $20,000 so that we could have our family reunion in France. Wouldn't that be wonderful!

    • Chantel31

      I'd go somewhere near the beach. We live in Las Vegas and would love to play in the waves of any beach!!

    • Jdconte

      Oh Yeah, I'd love to go!!

    • Ssskeater

      I would go to New Orleans. I love that city and I'm sure with all that is going on down there they could use the business. I'm afraid with the PR people aren't going even though the spill won't change your visit there.

    • Nichole

      I'll definitely join you if you go to Charleston! I live in Asheville, though, so if you decide on coming here I'll just meet you for dinner. :)

    • Renep22

      I would plan my destination wedding and then “pay” for everyones hotel for the weekend!

    • madpaulmom

      Any beach would work for me. I absolutely love Charleston and that would be a wonderful place, but with 2 kids, I think the IOP Hampton Inn is the one to go to. And it is close to Red's Ice House :)

    • Amber

      To either Hilton Head, GA or Orlando, FL. My husband and I would love to go to Savannah for our anniversary, but the kids would LOVE to go to Disney, LOL.

    • Jhzoo

      I would go to the Phillips Place Hampton Inn, went there in February during the freak snow storm and still had a great time with my husband. We walked to the movies in the snow and Dean and Delucca is right around the corner and Southpark mall is across the street. I definetly reccomend it.

    • Robin

      I guess since we can't afford the beach this year it would be a beachy location. I'd love to come if you won and of course I'd invite you if I did. Our twins could play together (I have 5 yr old boys)!

    • Andreajenkins22

      Without a doubt, I would go to NYC. Hotels are so expensive in NYC, so this would be a great way to get the most out of free nights.

    • Psimmons5565

      We just got back from the Hampton in Philly,PA It was a great location near the historic district. They offer a warm breakfast.

    • Letitia

      I would find one on Hilton Head Island, SC I live near there and we love visiting it. And we do trips for our kids birthdays now because we got tired of the head ache of parties and my oldest is 2 weeks over due for her birthday trip!

    • Valerie

      A beach!!!!!! Give me the sand and ocean breeze any day of the week :)

    • Tamara

      i would go to st. simons!!

    • Katie

      I would plan a family reunion at the Hampton Inn in Rockland/Thomaston Maine. We have taken a couple of windjammer cruises up there and love it!

    • Kimberly

      Would it be terrible to pick a whole hotel and only have a few friends go? The peace and quiet would be great, granted the hotel staff would probably be annoyed only seeing 6 or 8 people for a whole weekend. Granted this could also be a good strategy for someone's honeymoon. Ha ha!

    • Mbuchner

      I would go to Myrtle Beach and take my granddaughers. We keep them for my daughter to work and my husband and I are retired so money is tight. This would be a great way to treat them this summer!
