Embassy Suites Challenges Guests to Design the Brand's New "Do Not Disturb" Sign:
Such As:  "There's a Good Reason for You NOT to Knock Right Now"

MEMPHIS, Tenn. September 7, 2007 - Embassy Suites Hotels today announces its nationwide search for the next best Do Not Disturb door hanger designs to be used in all of its nearly 190 upscale, all-suite hotels. For the next two months (September and October of 2007) a panel of Embassy Suites judges will choose the cleverest design/copy submitted and pick five winners who will all win stays at a select Embassy Suites Hotels, plus have their signs hung on door knobs at all Embassy Suites throughout the U.S., Canada and Latin America.

Known for its own variation on the Do Not Disturb sign - "There's a Good Reason for You NOT to Knock Right Now" - Embassy Suites challenges guests to up the ante on the fun. "Embassy Suites is all about giving consumers choice and control over their business or leisure travel," said John Lee, Vice President of Brand Marketing. "We've gotten such a tremendous response to our Do Not Disturb sign that we thought it would be fun to give consumers some control over what their door sign says. We imagine there are many creative ways our guests would like to say 'do not disturb me right now'."

From September 7th to October 31st 2007, people can enter the Embassy Suites Hotels Do Not Disturb contest at and create a unique and catchy slogan for their very own Do Not Disturb, and customizing it by choosing from a number of online designs, images and templates provided by Embassy Suites Hotels. Based on the top designs submitted, five Grand Prize Winners will have their designs placed in all Embassy Suites Hotels, and will receive hotel accommodations at one of the following destinations: The Embassy Suites Hotel-Waikiki Beach Walk (Waikiki, HI); The Embassy Suites Hotel Mexico City-Reforma (Mexico City, D.F.); The Embassy Suites Hotel and Spa-La Quinta, (La Quinta, CA); The Embassy Suites Hotel New York City, The Embassy Suites Hotel - Washington D.C. Convention Center.

The panel of judges will select the top five Do Not Disturb designs in November and the five winners will be announced in February 2008 when signs will be available in hotels across the country.
