On June 10th we launched a contest to rename Guestroom #6, the Purple Room. We had a terrific response with over 100 suggestions coming in via facebook, email, phone and in person. There were a few FUN ones that weren’t selected…. One favorite came from Ralph Watts, owner of the Comic Book Shop in downtown Ephrata. He suggested, “Room I Never Want to Leave But Have To…”, good one Ralph! Other top contenders were: “Americana”, “Rainbow”, “Prism” and Henry Miller Suite.
And so, in the end, it was the combination of these two suggestions that we ultimately selected. The new name for Guest Suite #6 is: the Crimson Dove Suite!!! One of the doves in our logo is colored with crimson tones, and there’s actually such a thing as a “Crimson Dove”! It just fit… we’d found our new name! Both John and Sharon will be splitting the prize of a free night in the Crismon Dove Suite, plus we’ll be sending them both Smithton Inn coffee mugs.
Thanks so much to everyone who sent in your ideas. I hope you like the new name and that you’ll come visit us soon to enjoy this luxurious suite for yourself!
