Historic NC Hotel Reopens

Thanks to the efforts of two brothers who have built a legacy of restoring historic properties, the Green Park Inn in Blowing Rock, NC is open for guests to experience the hotel's wonders anew.
Opening as a hotel in 1891, a stay at the "Grand Dame of the High Country" is sure to be a one-of-a-kind experience and includes breakfast made-to-order.
Visit them here - Green Park Inn.

Donate Hotel Rewards to Wounded Veteran Families

A new program with the participation of key hotel chains AmericInn, Best Western, Choice, Marriott, Starwood and Wyndham allows hotel guests who build up hotel rewards points to donate them towards wounded Vets and their families to use. The program will be overseen by Fisher House, a non-profit group that opens its homes to military families while visiting injured family members at hospitals in the U.S. I applaud the backers of these programs in helping our Veterans and their families in time of need, and making it possible to people to use their points for a very worthwhile cause.

Read more details about the Hotels for Heroes program and how to participate.
