Shelli’s 100th Post & Amazon eGift Card Giveaway

Update: The $10 Amazon eGift Card winners are announced here.

Time flies when you’re having fun! It’s amazing to me that yesterday’s blog post was my 100th. When I starting writing here at TWG, Grant’s only instruction to me was to write what you’d like to read about. I have very broad interests, so 100 posts later, I sure have written about all kinds of different topics related to travel, miles and points.

To celebrate my 100th post, I am giving away 5 $10 Amazon eGift Cards.  All you have to do is leave a comment telling me which of my 100 blog posts was your favorite.  You have until Thursday, August 17 at 11:59pm PT to leave a comment.  I will pick 5 winners on Friday morning and Grant will send the winners a $10 Amazon eGift Card.

Simple enough?  Thank you for reading and here’s to another 100 blog posts!

Amazing Stay at DoubleTree Arctic Club Hotel in Seattle (Historic Building Built in 1917)

Good afternoon everyone.  Two weekends ago, my girlfriend and I had the pleasure to stay the beautiful and historic DoubleTree Arctic Club Hotel in Seattle, WA.  According to the hotel’s bio, the Arctic Club is a “AAA 4-Diamond Award-winning hotel in Seattle, WA. This tastefully decorated hotel in Seattle, WA offers a unique experience, echoing the post-Klondike gold rush days of the early 1900s.” According to Wikipedia, the Arctic Club was built for the Arctic Club in 1917 for the successful veterans of the Klondike Gold Rush and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.  Needless to say, this is not your average DoubleTree hotel (but they did have chocolate chip cookies on demand at the front desk).  I spoke with the front desk agents a few times during my stay and they were very helpful and friendly.  As we were checking out, the front desk agent told me that the hotel would most likely transition into a Conrad Hotel in the near future.  In this post, I will share my experience staying in the hotel.  I hope you enjoy the hotel review.
