Embassy Suites offers CS suite in Olympics-themed competition

The Colorado Springs Embassy Suites has launched a Facebook contest in honor of the summer Olympics and will give away a two-night stay for up to four people.

“The idea behind the contest is to create hype around the area and around the hotel, which is not far from the U.S. Olympic Training Center,” said Kim Leveque, a spokeswoman for Blue Magnet Interactive, which is running the campaign.

To win, participants need to like the Colorado Springs Embassy Suites Facebook page and submit stories about “gold medal moments,”  in athletics, careers, personal lives, academics or any other realm.

Embassy Suites will post the stories on its Facebook page and will enter the story author each time someone likes the story. The winner will be selected randomly in a drawing June 29, Leveque said.

The Colorado Springs hotel’s Facebook page is relatively new, and the contest is designed to draw traffic and highlight the property’s proximity to the Olympic training center.
