Joie de Vivre to reward rebels

Playing hooky could pay off for guests at six Joie de Vivre Hotels in the U.S. Southwest.

As part of Joie de Vivre’s Ditch campaign, guests can tweet an excuse for ditching their everyday responsibilities and take a photo upon arrival at one of the brand’s participating hotels wearing a disguise provided by the property. The best excuses and photos will win a two-night stay at one of the hotels.

The contest continues through November 15. Participating hotels include The Shorebreak Hotel in Huntington Beach, California; Pacific Edge in Laguna Beach, California; Hotel Erwin in Venice, California; Custom Hotel near LAX; The Saguaro in Palm Springs, California; and The Saguaro in Scottsdale, Arizona.
