This is how Embassy Suites’ guests say “Do Not Disturb”


Embassy Suites Hotels announce the five winning slogans of the Do Not Disturb contest. These guest-designed door hangers will be displayed in all of the hotel brand’s nearly 200 properties starting in March and each winner will receive a three-night stay at select Embassy Suites destinations.

“It was so much fun to be able to create something that will actually appear in hotels all over the country,” said Marty Mintman from St. Louis, Missouri, the winner of the stay at Embassy Suites Waikiki Beach Walk (Honolulu, HI). Marty won with the slogan “Shh! I’m hatching a plan to bust some little soaps out of here.”

The five Embassy Suites Do Not Disturb contest winners have each been awarded a three -night stay at select Embassy Suites locations. In addition to Marty, the other grand prize winners are:

- “Pillow Fight In Progress.” - Susan Suarez, University City, MO - LaQuinta Resort & Spa (LaQuinta, CA)

- “There are days when I wish I could wear this around my neck” - Sandra Parcher, Milpitas, CA - The Embassy Suites New York (New York City)

- “I’ve built a pillow fort and I am not opening the door for anybody!” - Amy Forgette, Streamwood, IL -The Embassy Suites Mexico City Reforma (Mexico City, D.F. Mexico)

- “Aww, Mom. Just five more minutes. Please?” - Brian White, Chicago, IL - The Embassy Suites Washington D.C. Convention Center (Washington, D.C.)

The contest, which ran online at from August – October 2007 was judged by John Lee, Vice President of Brand Marketing and Communications at Embassy Suites; Eric Melkent from Embassy Suites advertising agency Carpenter Sullivan Sossaman (CS2); and Jody Smith, Mike McGilligan and Sayed Hassan, general managers at the Austin Embassy Suites, La Jolla Embassy Suites and Chicago Embassy Suites hotels, respectively.

Guests chose from online designs, images and templates to customize their very own Do Not Disturb design and slogan. Judges were specifically looking for the cleverest and most original Embassy Suites Do Not Disturb signs.

“It was so refreshing to hear the guests’ ideas,” said Jody Smith. “We sifted through more than 7,100 entries and tried to choose winners that had slogans that fit with Embassy’s playful brand personality. The response was overwhelming.”
