You know what I love about Hotel Palomar (besides the fact that they house the tasty Central 214 with celebrity chef Blythe Beck)?

They are always doing these cool little promotions, making it easy to check-in if you want to check-out for a little stay-cation.

This week, for example, they are teaming up with DART for Earth Week and offering 25 percent off a night stay for DART riders (with the rate code RAILS and DART rail pass). This, by the way, is good until the end of the year.

And this one’s really good—a three-week Photo Scavenger Hunt contest offers a chance to win a two-night stay for two in a Hotel Palomar Dallas Luxury Suite, two Palomar signature animal print robes, dinner for two at Central 214 restaurant, two DART VIP Passes, yoga classes at Exhale Spa, and services at Salon Pompeo and Mint.

Rules explained after the jump:

Rules: April 19 – May 8, 2010: Visit the DART Web site for weekly "Ride the Rails with DART" Scavenger Hunt clues to station landmarks along the DART Red or Blue rail lines. Have someone take their photo at the winning destination. Then e-mail the weekly photo submissions to by each Saturday at midnight CDT to be entered into the weekly drawing.
