Win a free stay at Hotel Max, Seattle

We have something very exciting to announce – Not only are we giving you all the detailed nuts and bolts of EXACTLY how we score tons of free travel all year long in our book, How To Travel For Free (or pretty damn near it!), but now we are also helping you to travel free by GIVING AWAY TRAVEL in great new contests!

That’s right, you can win free travel right here with us – along with saving tons of money on your own travel using our methods such as home exchanges, bartering, frequent flyer tricks and dozens of other ways that we travel for free, or next to nothing, extensively. Every month we will be featuring a new contest for travel giveaway to a different destination, right here on How To Travel For Free (or pretty damn near it!). So subscribe to our blog and check back frequently so you don’t miss any!

Our first Travel Giveaway Contest is for the hip, happening, beautiful city of Seattle. I (Shelley) wrote a guidebook to Seattle last year for Globe Pequot Press, called The Insiders Guide to Seattle. The book was recently published, and we will be giving away free autographed copies of the book to five lucky winners!

But that’s not even the best part. The Grand Prize winner will also win a FREE 2 NIGHT STAY at my favorite hotel in Seattle – the Hotel Max.

The Max is eclectic, artsy and fun. Set in the heart of downtown, it offers an artistic setting and provides a platform for both emerging and established Seattle artists and photographers. There are more than 350 original paintings and photographs found throughout the lobby, guest rooms and corridors.

Rooms are groovy, and the bar is one of the best in downtown Seattle. When I was living there, it was one of my favorite places. Intimate and understated, they serve great little light plates and killer cocktails.

So, how do you win? It’s simple – there are 4 ways to be entered into the giveaway:

  1. Buy How to Travel for Free. For every purchase of the book either as a pdf download, or softcover print version, you will be put into the contest with 10 Entries.
  2. Link to Us. Do you have a website or blog? Link to this post or our Home Page, and you’ll receive an entry. Be sure and notify us of your link!
  3. Make a Comment. Write a comment on this post (and future ones for this contest) and you’ll receive an entry.
  4. Share on Social Media. Tweet, Facebook or Digg this post or our Home Page, and you’ll receive an entry. Be sure to reference us so that we know you’ve linked to us – here’s how:

The contest will end at midnight, Monday February 28. Drawings will be done completely at random from the total entries at that time; the Grand Prize winner will receive a gift certificate for a free 2-night stay at Hotel Max (good for one year) and autographed copy of The Insiders Guide to Seattle; and four runners-up will also receive The Insiders Guide to Seattle.

Stay tuned for more posts about Seattle and this contest, including next week’s Seattle on a Shoestring – dozens of great attractions and activities in Seattle that are FREE or close to it.

Good luck

About Shelley Seale

I'm Shelley, a journeyer and learner of the world, freelance journalist and author, yoga chick and dog lover. I pound the keyboard from home barefoot every day, and while my boss is demanding she also occasionally lets me have the early afternoon cocktail. I think not going into an office or collecting corporate paychecks are very good ideas, though not always profitable. I have written for National Geographic, USA Today, The Guardian, Texas Monthly and CNN, among others. Neither the New York Times nor Johnny Depp have answered my letters yet. I love yoga, indie movies, wine, and books, though not necessarily in that order. I believe in karma. Mean people suck. If I could have any dream job I would like to be a superhero. I have performed a catch on the flying trapeze, boarded down a live volcano and was once robbed by a monkey in Nepal. But, I don't know how to whistle. My mantra is "travel with a purpose."

    Hmmm… I’ve never been to Seattle. And, if I won something like that, it would be the first trip in many years that had a partial plan to it. Interesting.

    What a cool site that I stumbled onto – excellent idea, fabulous pics, and well, a spectacular idea in today’s world. So much tension, economic instability, and unrest – the gifts that you get from global travel can change all of that. And free is always a good thing.

    Good luck and also neat contest!
