An Okanagan hotel was featured on an American game show this week.

On Wednesday, The Price Is Right on CBS featured a Christmas-themed episode that included a six-night stay in the King Balcony Suite at Prestige Vernon Lodge.

In a press release, Prestige Hotel and Resorts said the stay was part of a package that wasn’t won by the contestant, who incorrectly guessed the value of the prize package.

“When producers approached us to participate and sponsor the prize, we, of course, said yes,” said Prestige Vernon Lodge general manager David Gibbs.

“It’s such an iconic game show that is watched by millions of people. We would have loved to welcome the contestant to our beautiful city had she won.”
