Update: I started a thread on Milepoint since there is at least some interest in this. This could be a great way to hang out and earn credit for the promo many of us will be doing anyway. Head over to Milepoint to brainstorm details or RSVP!
I’ve gotten a few comments, emails, and tweets related to doing a Park Inn by Radisson meet-up. Since there are only ten in the country, and two are in the state of Texas, it doesn’t sound like a terrible idea. There has been some talk of visiting the one in Dallas due to the proximity to DFW, but since I am already so close to one in Houston, I’m more likely to stay local in this instance. Which begs the question……..any local Houston folks (or those who were coming in to hit a super cheap Park Inn and Country Inn & Suites anyway) want to try and coordinate? We could go eat somewhere near the hotel in the North Houston area, or just hang out at the hotel bar. Doesn’t matter to me. Though Pappasitos is only about 7-8 miles away……. AAA rates for the hotel that night are about $66.00 plus tax. There is a shuttle service to/from IAH for anyone that is considering taking this stay onto a flight in or out of the lovely city of Houston.
The date that has been mentioned to me is Saturday June 16th, but that isn’t set in stone. If there really is interest, we can coordinate all the details over on the Meet Up Forum at MilePoint. I just wanted to post something about it on this site since a few folks had reached out to me here. Let me know if there really is some interest, and we can start a thread on MilePoint. You can get both Country Inn and Suites and Park Inn stays in North Houston for not much over $100 plus taxes. To put it in familiar terms for my husband, that is 88,000 bonus points for the cost of a few beers for the two of us at an NFL game. I will be redeeming those points for at least a $400 – $500 value, so it is a great deal for my family!
