In its first year, Embassy Suites by Hilton at Destiny USA has seen guests from 49 states, two territories, and 12 countries. Through a promotion offered by Destiny USA with the Fargo, ND Convention and Visitors Bureau titled “You-Betcha Destiny,” North Dakotans were encouraged to submit personal stories about why September 7th, (the opening date of the hotel last year) was special to them for the opportunity to win a trip to Syracuse to complete the list to represent visitation from all 50 states. The lucky winners, Art and Nicole Thompson of Bismark, ND have a year to take advantage of complimentary airfare to Syracuse and accommodations at Embassy Suites to celebrate! Art, who kept his entry a secret, praised his wife for being a good mother to their daughter who was born on September 7, 2007.
