The Godfrey Hotel Chicago knows a thing or two about the elements. Resembling large stacking blocks made out of modern steel, the luxury boutique hotel features nods to the elements throughout its property. 

This past year, scientists discovered element 139, which has yet to have an official name. Ever a fan of the periodic table, the Godfrey is offering the following for the wittiest name suggestions:

  • First place: Discounted rate of $139 throughout the entire year of 2014, one night complimentary stay, and a $25 gift card to I|O Urban Roofscape

  • Second place: Complimentary one-night stay

  • Third place: $25 gift card to I|O Urban Roofscape

Enter now through January 21 on the Godfrey Hotel Facebook page here

Three Words on How To Travel Better

updated5-travel-better-updatedgif

We asked a team of experts in a recent Twitter Chat for their travel rules of the road, which we’ve been revealing in a series of blog posts. We asked our panel to reveal how they travel better in only three words.

Designer, Chris Benz (@cmbenz) must be a T+L-type traveler because he lives by the words: “Carry, On, Only.”

T+L’s Travel News Editor, Jennifer Flowers (@JennFlowers), is traveling the world and trying food that she encounters in new cultures, so naturally, Imodium, Pepto-Bismol, and Tums are necessities in her suitcase.

T+L’s Director of Editorial Product Development, Peter Frank (@pfrank1), makes sure Ambien is available for long-flights (assuming there wasn’t a flight delay and he met the T+L team at the bar first!).

Follow @travlandleisure on Twitter and #TL_Chat for more expert tips.
