It's a Showdown!

Posted: Wed-Feb-2015

On Tuesday February 10 at 8 pm cst on the Travel Channel, the McCormick House Inn squares off against 3 different hotels in "Hotel Showdown". It's a winner-take-all competition. Representatives from the competing hotels spend the night at each other’s property, and with an exacting eye for detail, award points for every aspect of their experience. The highest-rated hotel wins a coveted $25,000 prize. The episode's final stop is Hayward, Wis., home to Jeff’s McCormick House Inn – a refurbished Victorian mansion decorated with art collected during Jeff’s world travels. He gives the hoteliers a taste of Hayward’s favorite winter activity, as the rivals face off in a cross-country ski race. To wrap up their evening, the McCormick House comes to life with a cocktail party and gourmet dessert from Jeff’s own ice cream shoppe. Oh the suspense! Tune in - we'll be watching!
