Pack Your Bags! Win a Two-Night Luxury Hotel Stay at the Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge in Charlotte, N.C. {Giveaway}

It’s no secret that I love a great hotel.  This is why I’m so excited to announce that I’m giving one reader a chance to “Pack Your Own Bags” and experience the luxury of The Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge in Charlotte, North Carolina, just like I did earlier this year. This prestigious resort has also been to rumored to host a certain someone that works in an Oval Office. You could be next.

The Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge  is a classic, luxury hotel in Charlotte, NC

By December, you could be enjoying some spa time, sipping afternoon tea and enjoying hot chocolate on the veranda, or taking a dip in this fabulous indoor pool.

I’m thrilled to be partnering with The Ballantyne Hotel and Lodge to host this fabulous two-night giveaway.  In February, I took my “Pack Your Bags” segment on the road for a much-needed night away from the kids, and this beautiful property from the Starwood Luxury Collection was the first stop on my hotel tour.

Go ahead! Take some time to catch up on my experience at the luxurious Ballantyne Hotel.  This will give you a head start on your trip planning.  The rooms are gorgeous.  The coconut cake in the Gallery Restaurant is like none other, and the Ballantyne Spa  is extraordinary.  You will love every minute of your stay.

The Ballantyne area in Charlotte is also filled with restaurants and shops.  There is plenty to do in this metropolitan city.  I will announce a winner before Thanksgiving, so the winner will have time to do some holiday shopping in Charlotte, if you so desire.

My friends at the Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority are also giving the winner two free visitor passes to the NASCAR Hall of Fame located in uptown Charlotte to get you started with some sightseeing during your visit.
