  1. Well, it has to be the Raleigh-Durham Airport location, what a cool place to stay, relax, and visit with friends. Great Management, great location, and price always help when choosing the hotel.

  2. I would love to stay at the Cambria Suites in Raleigh, NC. I am a huge hockey fan and the NHL All-Star game is to be held in Raleigh this year. Their website shows it is within ten minutes to the RBC center where the Canes play and the All-Star Game will be held! Sounds so exciting! I would be thrilled to win this! I love the amenities the Cambria Suites offer!

  3. I’d have to choose among several places too — Savannah if I could use during one of the music festivals where my friends play, Indianapolis because I have good friends in Bloomington, not that far away, Minneapolis because I’ve been invited to visit there, Roanoke because it is a place I’d like to see. and there are more… it is an interesting collection of cities they have. have you stayed with them?

  4. Taking a chance and interested in the Akron-Canton, OH location. It would be lovely to take advantage of this during my high school class reunion later this year.

  5. You always have such fun giveaways!! Congrats to the two who won so far for the January giveaway. I still have my most prized book on the Dupont homes sitting on my coffee table- it is a book no one can pass up flipping through as they are sitting in my living room!!! (THANKS!!!)

  6. What a fun giveaway. I would have to decide between 3 places. I could stay in Denver and see my husband’s family in Colorado. I could go to the one in VA and see my family in VA whom I haven’t seen in years (unfortunately we usually only get together for sad events such as funerals, it would be good to just see them), or I could go to Baton Rouge to see a really lovely writer friend who’s asked me to visit many times. Tough choices!

  7. @Donna => Boise has a Cambria, and I have stayed there. Very posh, and conveniently near the airport and the freeway. On the downside, it is not near downtown or the attractions of Boise. -r

  8. i think i was totally clueless bc i had a really hard time finding a list of their locations. that said, i DID find one near minneapolis (bloomington) and we LOVE LOVE LOVE to go there. it’s one of my favorite places in the world, and i’d love to go back!

    congrats to the winners of those wonderful books!
