Giveaway: 4 Night Stay in Paris to a Blog Reader

Luxury Travel Diary, a high-end travel blog with great reviews based in the UK, has a bunch of travel auctions with real bargains.

They wanted to highlight some of these, and offered to help organize a giveaway of a 4 night hotel stay in Paris for readers of this blog. I suppose that folks who already know about these auctions don’t like this added attention, because frankly there aren’t enough bidders relative to the value of the offerings and some of these items go too cheap.

Prize: 4 nights in Paris at Hotel Eugene en Ville in a superior room with private terrace including buffet breakfast. The winner can redeem subject to availability between November 1, 2015 and March 31, 2016 (excluding December 31, January 19-24, February 14).

Hotel Eugene

While I haven’t stayed there I certainly would, it appears that three quarters of guests rate the property as very good or excellent on TripAdvisor and it would mean getting away from the chains and indulging in a more boutique contemporary experience for the City of Light.

I asked readers to leave a comment with their favorite item up for auction at Luxury Travel Diary, or why they would choose to stay at Hotel Eugene en Ville over other hotels in Paris.

The winning comment was drawn at random from those submitted prior to the cutoff time:

The winner is FlyFan who found his favorite auction deal:

Congratulations, FlyFan, and enjoy your stay at the Hotel Eugene en Ville. It looks like a phenomenal property in Paris!
