Last month we sent someone to Nashville, with a tan, as part of the cool Dream Amenity contest that we did in partnership with the Hotel Preston. The winner was one Mike Nielsen of Los Angeles whose dream amenity suggestion was an in-room acoustic guitar which will be implemented by the hotel in the coming months.

Even though he only won a two nights stay, Mike and his girlfriend decided to stay an extra two nights and the Hotel Preston gave him a discounted rate of $79 a night. Sweet! And as we expected, Mike has nothing but great things to say about Hotel Preston. Here's his review:

Hotels have become quite clever these days with their in-room amenities. Like The Wit Hotel in Chicago with its cute wake-up calls or the complimentary laptops at The Lanesborough Hotel in London. We're also partial to the "donut soap" at The James and hotels that have Sony Readers or Kindles. And of course, sexy in-room amenities continue to be popular with hotel guests.

At The Hotel Preston in Nashville, amenities are a big part of the guest experience. A Spiritual Menu is offered to guests so they can choose how they want to say their nightly prayers. And just by pressing the hotel's "You want it, you got it" button on the room phone, a lava lamp, a gold fish, a good book, an art kit, a rubber duckie and even milk and cookies can be delivered to your room.

Now the hotel is seeking to add to their amenity list and they want YOU to come up with their next big amenity offering. What is your ultimate fantasy when it comes to hotel room amenities? For the first time ever, you can actually tell us what that fantasy is and by doing so, you'll be entered to win two free round trip tickets on Southwest to Nashville, plus two nights at The Hotel Preston!

Gay Cowboys Ride Into Nashville

If you loved Brokeback Mountain and want to live the real thing, then visit Nashville's Hotel Preston which is rounding up the official gay rodeo crowd.

You never know what you'll find when you surf your destination's tourism site for conventions coming to town. It's not a bad idea though: you could be stuck with 3,000 swingers or be planning a trip when there's a huge shoe convention going on.

If you were planning to stay at the Hotel Preston the weekend nights of October 20 and 21, you'll have to look elsewhere. Rooms are all booked by members of the International Gay Rodeo Association, convening their annual convention. (We imagine that membership is on the rise in these post-Brokeback Mountain days.)

There won't be a lot of lassoing and bull riding going on though; Hotel Preston is just past the airport runway and next to the interstate highway. They've proven that "airport hotel" and "fun" don't have to be mutually exclusive though. We like the whimsical molded yellow plastic sofas and red skylight by the front door, as well as the pet goldfish or lava lamp they will bring gratis your room. The ample rooms have new beds with white duvets, a pillow menu, Tazo Tea, Starbucks Coffee and a CD player with discs to borrow. Plus it's hard not to like the attitude of a place that offers a "Play Hard, Sleep Late" package--complete with bloody marys and painkillers when you get up.

We assume the big outdoor pool and sundeck will be covered in shirtless cowboys that weekend. If that's your scene, you can still rope yourself a room for the night of October 19 to catch the prelude, for $109 to $149.
