Plus they have an amazing sweepstakes to enter right now: The Springhill Suites Video Memory Challenge so be sure to enter it in addition to this giveaway! Maybe more than one of my readers can win a free hotel stay!

You can earn additional entries by sharing this sweepstakes on Twitter and Facebook for up to 30 entries total in this sweepstakes. I scored a 90% – what did you score?

4 Reasons I Want to Stay at Springhill Suites
I haven’t stayed at a Springhill Suites yet, but after reviewing the photos and information I easily came up with 4 reasons I’ll be looking for a Springhill Suites to stay at on our family’s next trip.

The Springhill Suites are 25% larger – that means more space for you and your family. From my own experience traveling with two small children, we spend a lot of time in the hotel room between naps and early bedtimes. So I love to have as much space as possible.

iHome to Dock my iPhone
I would be so happy to stay in a hotel room where I could dock my iPhone without bringing any extra equipment. I could even set my alarm just like I do at home!

Lounge & Office Area
Don’t worry about having a place to sit down and work or just hang out – because Springhill Suites have comfy looking lounge and office areas inside each suite. Kind of like having your own living room and office inside your hotel room. The desk area has great lighting and an ergonomic chair.

Inside the room is everything you need to make your stay more comfortable with kids: microwave, mini refrigerator, kitchen sink, coffee maker. This is so important but not something you’ll find at every hotel.

My husband and I never get overnight getaways from the kids, this would be great !!


Mischievous1 December 7, 2009 at 12:09 am

Our time for relaxation is way overdue!!


Anonymous December 6, 2009 at 10:26 pm

I want to give it to my brother. He is blind and has many disabilities. He lives with a guy he has known since he was 4. He is also blind. They live in assisted living. They like to come and visit us in January. They live in Ohio and we are in Indiana.They need assistance when they come so 2 workers drive them over. We don't have space for all 4 of them and my brother doesn't do stairs very well. So they pay for the workers and hotel. It is something they look forward to every year and we have a good time together playing games. My kids enjoy spending time with them. A suite is just what they need for the 4 of them. They don't make alot of money and I would love to give them this. Our budget is tight as well.


Jenn December 6, 2009 at 9:59 pm

I love any place with a spacious floorplan and a kitchenette! I have 3 little ones and NEED MY SPACE! LOL


Keonte' December 6, 2009 at 9:57 pm

Lately, I have been neglecting my household duties. I recently went back to work and am still getting into the swing of managing home and work. The house is a mess.It would be nice to go to a hotel just to relax and spend some quality time with my partner. This would be a great way to catch-up on much needed rest so that I am available to my family. I would love to stay at Springhill Suites.


Jenae December 6, 2009 at 8:47 pm

My husband just got into dental school – this would be the PERFECT getaway since we'll be low on money!!


Elisha December 6, 2009 at 8:29 pm

My sister, niece, nephew, and I are visiting family in Ohio for Christmas and we will have to stay in a hotel because none of them have room to house us! This would be a fabulous way to stay for free!


Veronica December 6, 2009 at 7:11 pm

We are a family with six children and needless to say we rarelyget to do family trips because the cost is so high for a familyour size. I think we deserve a getaway and what a treat this wouldbe for our family……everything about the Springhill Suitesseems wonderful!


Anonymous December 6, 2009 at 4:10 pm

we just lost everything down to our vehicles taking care of a homeless girl and her baby (which she didn't want) we moved, and emptied our bank accounts for her, I raised that baby for a year, she took him to michigan to her mom who doesnt want him and came back, we took big cuts in paychecks, and 1 car has already been repoed. We haven't left Trenton in the 4 years we have been together, I love Sean with all my heart and I can't think of anybody else who deserves a couple of days away, we don't even know if there's gonna be a xmas, didn't want us to sound pityful, but thats been our life, just reality. thank you for your time


Drea December 6, 2009 at 3:32 pm

I would love to take my boyfriend on a vacation and this would be the only way we could afford to do it. 🙂


Gaengy December 6, 2009 at 2:54 pm

My husband was recently laid off his job, the sale of our home fell through 3 days before closing, he has a new job and is living in a new town and I go back and forth between the 2 places…it would be a nice break from reality!


Sherri December 6, 2009 at 11:57 am

My husband is currently deployed in Afghanistan. I would love to win this so I could surprise him with a get away when he comes home for R


Alecia Castro December 6, 2009 at 9:42 am

Loving this giveaway, thanks so much for the chance!!OH, and I scored a 90% too!! ;o)


Naomi December 4, 2009 at 9:43 pm

I'd love an excuse to get out of town…


Sarah December 4, 2009 at 10:41 am

I'd love to wwin because i've been home alone for the last year while with my daughter while my husband was serving a year long tour in Iraq. He is due to return home in TWO weeks and a free hotel stay would be a great way to help us get re-aquainted again!


Anonymous December 4, 2009 at 9:37 am

We would love to have a free stay at Springhill Suites because my husband works a lot and we are on a tight budget. It would be great to have some family time without having to worry about how we are going to be able to afford it.


The Greenhorn Momma December 4, 2009 at 9:32 am

We have a 6 month old..Need I say more ? hehe


MommyBarnes December 3, 2009 at 4:45 pm

I am a stay at home mom & for the next few days, I have 4 4year old boys + a 6month old boy 🙂 They are Irish triplets 🙂 I had my twin boys 8 days before my oldest boy turned 1 🙂 It has been a while since my husband and I have been able to "get away". If I won this sweepstakes, I would either A. surprise my husband for a get a way on our next anniversary or B. Use it to go visit friends/family. A family of 6 can be a bit intrusive and it would be nice to have our own rooms to go back to. It would be a hard pick because as much as we need some time away, it has been such a joy to see the world through our boys eyes!


Ann December 3, 2009 at 2:04 pm

Why not, look at the pictures of the suites and loggings, these appear upscale. We are going on vacation soon for the holidays, and it would be extra nice to have help.brownatural at gmail dot com


Anonymous December 3, 2009 at 12:54 pm

I want a kid-free getaway that's just not in the budget right now!


mineola December 3, 2009 at 11:47 am

I want to stay at Spring Hill because I'm a sucker for waffles! 😀 A continental breakfast usually just doesn't cut it on the road so even though it's just a small thing I like my creature comforts – mornings are hectic with trying to get everyone rounded up & going in the right direction so I truly appreciate having a nice hearty breakfast at the ready, right there on site- easy peasy. It is almost always too much to go out to a sit-down breakfast timewise & they are often across a busy street, etc. etc. – no time for it. SpringHill Suites Pittsburgh North Shore – which is where I would head off to- revisit old stomping grounds! – is convenient to the baseball stadiums (which I hear have a Primanti Brothers stand now!!!!!! & the spa looks clean & inviting. I can't say that I have stayed at a Spring Hill Suite before but now they are on my radar – honestly I didn't realize they were a part of Marriott so now that they aren't a mystery & I know they will meet high Marriott standards they're on the shortlist. I like the video because it shows a realistic vision of what the hotels are like- they really show you the actual property with real people. I like that.


Melissa December 3, 2009 at 11:41 am

We've stayed at a Springhill Suites before and it was the BEST hotel experience I've EVER had! Amazing decor, great service, super comfy beds, and I could go on and on. I would love to win this for a getaway for my hubby and I…our anniversary is coming up and this would be a great gift!


Anonymous December 3, 2009 at 10:36 am

Because I need it! I adopt children and currently have 5 kids. Their ages range from 16 to 1. I have a full time job and stresses of every nature to accompany it! The only thing that helps me keep my sanity is weekend getaways with the girls while daddy stays home with the kids. But with the adoption expense, money is tight. I am not saying I deserve it more than anyone else but…I would be the most grateful person in the whole world! : )


Living The Dream December 3, 2009 at 10:10 am

My husband and I had our little boy in March. We have not had any "us" time in so long and a night away would be so nice.


Heather Abbey : Full time Wife, Mother & Worker Bee December 3, 2009 at 10:04 am

I would like to win the free stay at Springhill Suites so I can finally afford to go go visit my mother in law in Phoenix. I can't afford both the airline tickets and hotel in Scottsdale! She has YET to meet her first grandson! (He is 10 months old now) and this would really help us out! :o)


Rhonda December 2, 2009 at 10:52 pm

Having stayed at a Marriott in the past, I have have been very impressed with the service and comfort of our stay there. My husband and I could use it on a get away since we have not had one alone since having our son. I might just be dreaming though.


Anonymous December 2, 2009 at 4:43 pm

I would to win the stay so that i can take my mother on a vacation. We found out that her son that is 41 yrs old has liver disease back in May of 2009 she had dedicated her every day and every moment to taking care of him while he is at the end stages of this terrible misfortune. He does not have long now maybe a few weeks left before he goes to see the angels in the sky and this would be the perfect gift for her to get away even if it was for 1 day to get her mind off of her son.Thank you for the opportunity to make this possible .


Jen December 2, 2009 at 4:24 pm

The photos you posted make it look like a nice, comfortable hotel!


Angie Marion December 2, 2009 at 3:07 pm

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!


delph80302 December 1, 2009 at 9:21 pm

After a long year, I would love to escape for a couple of days with my husband and my daughter.


Anonymous December 1, 2009 at 2:00 pm

Because I have three kids and this is the first year in seven years I have not been pregnant or nursing…need I say more?


Emily December 1, 2009 at 1:31 pm

I'd like to win a free stay so that my husband and I can relax and have a little mini-vacation. We just had baby #4 and could use a little break!


April December 1, 2009 at 1:04 pm

I would like to win night or two for me and my husbands six year anniversary in January… no kids allowed 🙂


Anonymous December 1, 2009 at 12:11 pm

Springfield suites just ran a promotion stay 2 nights get the third free. We are going to Orlando and my brother in law reserved this hotel for $200 for 3 nights w/ the promo. He told me but I was to late to get in, but I'll let you know what he things of it since we will be meeting each other, just at neighboring hotels. Also he told me they have free breakfast which is also a money saver!I hope I win the gift card, as I would like to try it. I'll have to pass by his room to see the suite!-Ted


cjs December 1, 2009 at 12:11 pm

We haven't traveled much in the last year, and would love to have a couple of relaxing days away!


Juliana ( December 1, 2009 at 11:57 am

I would love if they picked me for this giveaway, I feel like I truly deserve a vacation. It would be well earned & desired!


Thrifty Gal December 1, 2009 at 11:48 am

I'd love to get away with my husband ~ we've been married 20 years and haven't taken a vacation without our children since our honeymoon!


Carmen December 1, 2009 at 11:33 am

Our house has gotten so small with our 2nd boy's birth. It would be so nice to get out of our cramped house and into a nice large, CLEAN room for a couple of nights! I think we would probably save it for the start of baseball season and take a trip to Houston so that we could take in a couple of Astros games and the zoo!


The Schwartz's December 1, 2009 at 10:21 am

I would love to stay at Springhill Suites because of the cozy look of the suites. I love how it has a lounging area and kitchenette. This would be perfect for a family getaway (from reality)! Our daughters 10, 7, and 3 would love the suite and love to go on an affordable vacation thanks to the hotel eing paid for. Also my husband and I may be able to use it for just us, because we never did get a honeymoon. We were married at 18 & 19 and didn't have the money. It would be wonderful to go on a honeymoon afer 9 years of marriage!


Naddez December 1, 2009 at 9:57 am

Very nice Giveaway! Thanks!!:)


Shelley December 1, 2009 at 9:40 am

Its been a bad 4 months and we all need to get away to recharge our spirits; this would enable us to do so.


The Kelly Krew December 1, 2009 at 9:37 am

I would love a free stay because my husband has just returned from Afghanistan and we could use some "mommy-daddy" time.


Anne B December 1, 2009 at 8:10 am

I scored a 90%,too! =)


Clay and Brittany Drown December 1, 2009 at 12:49 am

My husband is in school at BYU full-time, has a part-time job, owns a carpentry business on the side so he does side jobs on weekends and evenings, AND is enrolled in the Air Force ROTC and will be an officer in two years. Needless to say, we hardly have an income and NO time. We have a 10 month old baby girl so we never have alone time. Our 1st anniversary was spent in the hospital because I had the flu while pregnant and our 2nd anniversary we had NO money to do a thing so we sat at home and stared at each other instead. So a free hotel stay would be AWESOME for us to get away, just for one night and finally be able to get an anniversary!


Cynthia B. November 30, 2009 at 11:03 pm

We stayed at a Springhill Suites while on a family vacation this past summer. It was only for one night, but it was convenient and comfortable – SCORE for my family! We'd love to try it again…but this time for longer!


tzigane November 30, 2009 at 10:07 pm

my husband and i currently live with my mother-in-law (plus her husband and 2 grandkids) and we share a small roon with our 18 month old son. so needless to say privacy and alone time are scare. this would be a great way to get away


Angela November 30, 2009 at 9:34 pm

My hubby and I could use a getaway. Our son is 19 months old and we haven't had much time to ourselves since he was born. Springhill suites looks so relaxing with all the modern conveniences…exactly what we need!


LB November 30, 2009 at 9:11 pm

Is there any way to enter the memory video challenge without watching the video? I can't get it to load 🙁


Kim in MO November 30, 2009 at 9:07 pm

With 3 children under 6 hotel stays are always a little bit of a challenge! A suite would make it ideal! We have a new nephew to visit in Mass. and a free hotel stay would make the trip much more affordable!


faith November 30, 2009 at 8:41 pm

My husband is a medical student and we have three kids 35 months apart (our oldest turned 3 in July). Boy would we all love to spend some quality time with Dad!


Shannon November 30, 2009 at 8:41 pm

This would be a great prize to win…we have to travel 6 hours away to a Tourette's Syndrome specialist for my twin sons and this would save us the expense of a hotel 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity.


Gina November 30, 2009 at 8:36 pm

I love to stay at Marriott hotels because they are always clean and the staff is always well trained. We have family out of town and this would definately cover the cost of a visit.


Heather November 30, 2009 at 8:31 pm

Anne-Marie – If you left this reason in your entry form – then yes, I got your entry!We love to have get-a-ways and i'd love to win a gift card to treat my husband with. We love relaxing with amenities and having a kitchenette in the room is such a bonus for fixing a quick meal rather than having to go out (or for bring leftovers home for a late night snack). I love the I-phone dock and i'm sure my husband would too.-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom


Kita November 30, 2009 at 8:27 pm

My hubby and I have 13 month old twin boys! enough said well I have more…. We are a very young couple(I am 18) Since the day I found out I was prego we haven't been able to get time away. He is a clemson grad so my whole pregnancy he was in school. His job doesn't give him Holidays and I am at home all day while trying to go to school. We live 2 in half hours away from our parents, so nobody to come and help out. WE NEED A BREAK I PRAY THE GOOD LORD THINKS SO TOO♥


Diana November 30, 2009 at 8:06 pm

What a great giveaway…My husband and I have such a long year starting over a year ago when he was laid off. Since then we have spent 6 of the last 12 months unemployed. We are so thankful for the job we have now but sure could use a break from all the frugalness of the last year.


Krista November 30, 2009 at 6:54 pm

Because I would love to have a babymoon with my husband before baby #2 comes in April and there isn't any other way we could afford it!


Samantha November 30, 2009 at 6:47 pm

I would love to get away, we have two dogs and a baby and well I must say a get away would be nice sometime.


Annette November 30, 2009 at 6:30 pm

Would love a vacation and with a family of 6 we will never go on vacation.


Christine November 30, 2009 at 6:27 pm

The springhill suites site seemed a little difficult to navigate to figure out where they are located in states. I did see there were Marroits though near where we wish to stay.


Christi November 30, 2009 at 6:19 pm

WHOOOO HOOOO!! Hope I Win! Sure could use a vacation after the Holidays!!


Anonymous November 30, 2009 at 6:15 pm

Oh, because this is the only way my husband and I can afford to have a few nights away! We recently invited my In-Laws to move in with us to help care for them. So between them and my eight year old…we NEED a few nights alone every so often! Thanks!Susanthriftyrocks AT yahoo DOT com
