$50 Amazon GC + Potential $150 GC from Residence Inn

Now, I don't know about you but I am very passionate about traveling.  I think everyone should do so at least a couple times in their life.  It does people good to leave the comfort of their homes and even larger their states.  There is just something about staying outside of the home and experiencing life elsewhere even if just overnight or for a small weekend.  One of the companies I have come to know, trust, and love has been Residence Inn.  Between their room, staff, and multiple locations, I know my stay is going to be one I won't forget!
