Retreat_350 As many of you know, we celebrated our descent into the city that never sleeps this week — the GRAND OPENING of our Queens property was on Friday, and WOW, was it a good time.   This spacious hotel is located in an emerging arts community,  just 1 block from the subway where you can catch a 5 minute ride into the heart of Times Square.  And the timing couldn’t be better: today we kick off our fall social media campaign, where we’ll follow some of our super-bloggin’ friends as they “retreat and refresh themselves” across the country, enjoying various local flavors and destinations near some of our favorite Country Inn & Suites By Carlson locales.

Tomorrow night: join our Working Mother Magazine Twitter Party and chime in as we discuss how busy moms indulge in “me time.”  Working Mother will moderate the conversation, handing out prizes throughout the hour-long affair, and we’ll conclude by announcing one lucky winner of “The Ultimate Retreat,” courtesy of yours truly.  😉  Ultimate Retreat includes a 2-night voucher good at ANY Country Inn & Suites property, an airline voucher, and a $100 Visa gift card.  Ladies, think of it — 2 nights without kids or husbands, with your girlfriends or alone.  Enjoy a manicure, a massage, a movie or whatever you consider your ideal “me time,” compliments of the Country Inns & Suite By Carlson family.

This week, we’ve got several of our favorite ladies heading to Queens — follow Zippy and Shannon as they each head to the Big Apple to “Retreat and Refresh” for a few days.

I love this Country!
