Hotel Gives Perks to Instagram Influencers

If you are an Instagram pro, then pack your bags for Sydney.

A boutique hotel in Australia’s most populous city is courting photographers on the platform to take snaps of its renovated digs in exchange for one free night.

Called 1888 Hotel, it was built the year in its moniker and then revamped and relaunched this year with a modern style and attention to design details. In an effort to promote its new space — the hotel features exposed brick walls, original Iron Bark Beams, recycled timber work stations, bespoke furniture, and artwork by Australian artists according to its website —  1888 Hotel is offering two ways for Instagrammers to win a free overnight stay.

First, If you have more than 10,000 followers on Instagram, all you have to do is follow 1888 Hotel on Instagram @8hotels and email with your personal information to book a free night at the hotel. Alternately, guests who Instagram photos of their stay and use the hashtag #1888Hotel are  automatically entered to win a free night. Each month, we look at the pictures and choose the most creative one.

If you aren’t up to 10,000 followers, you better start upping your Instagram game.
