Sleep in Alpharetta Promotion Winners Enjoy $100 Gift Cards
Alpharetta visitors were surprised with a $100 gift card after their room number was chosen as a winner of the Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Bureau’s (CVB) yearlong Sleep in Alpharetta promotion.
To encourage hotels stays, the Alpharetta Convention and Visitors Bureau will draw a room number from one of Alpharetta’s 23 hotels each week through July 2013; the lucky guest staying in that room on Saturday night will receive a $100 Visa Gift Card. The hotel rooms that were randomly drawn to win during the month of August were at the Embassy Suites Alpharetta, Hampton Inn Alpharetta/Roswell, Homewood Suites Alpharetta and the Alpharetta Marriott.
Mary Kay Hamlin was one of the recipients of the $100 gift cards. She and her friend Dolores were visiting from Maryville, Tenn. to see Il Divo at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre at Encore Park. “You have a lovely city,” said Hamlin, “We wish we had more time to explore, but plan to do so in the future.”
