One Blog Reader Wins a 3 Night Terrace Suite Stay in New York!

Luxury Travel Diary, a high-end travel blog with great reviews based in the UK, has a bunch of travel auctions — some about to close, others extend into October — and there look to be some real bargains.

They wanted to highlight some of these, and offered to help organize a giveaway of a 3 night hotel stay in a suite at a top property in New York 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: a three-night stay in a terrace suite at The William New York – subject to availability with no blackouts.

I asked readers to leave a comment on with their favorite item up for auction at Luxury Travel Diary, or why they would choose to stay at The William.

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

The winner is Jay:

Congratulations, Jay, and enjoy your stay at the William. By all accounts it is a phenomenal property in New York!
