DALLAS, Feb. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Starting today, Hotels.com® is giving travelers a chance to have some fun in the sun during the chilly winter days by giving away seven hotel stays to seven sun-kissed beach destinations to lucky winners across the U.S.
From February 8-22, trip-seekers can enter the "Wish I Was Here Sweepstakes" by visiting the promotion microsite, powered by Blue Calypso, Inc. and sharing which of the seven beachfront hotels they wish they were at via their Facebook, Twitter, and/or LinkedIn pages. Each entrant will receive one entry in the sweepstakes drawing for a stay at the shared property. For each friend that shares the same property with his or her social network(s) via the site, the original entrant will gain an additional sweepstakes entry for the drawing associated with the property he or she shared.
Seven winners will be selected to receive a voucher for a hotel stay to one of seven breezy beach locations in Aruba, Cancun, San Juan, Puerto Rico, Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico or Riviera Nayarit, Mexico. The winner of the trip to the most shared property across all social networks will also receive a $500 cash gift card. Winners will be chosen randomly on or about February 27, 2013.
"Hotels.com understands the value of a much-needed vacation, and we strive to make some wishes come true by giving travelers a chance to unwind on the sandy shores of these beachfront hotels," said Taylor L. Cole, APR, travel expert for Hotels.com. "For anyone looking to sit back and soak in the sun or go on a wild adventure, these destinations offer just the right atmosphere and you'll no doubt wish you were here!"
