We arrived Friday morning and quickly checked into our room (more on that later) before heading downstairs to the gifting suite held in the meeting rooms and adjacent courtyard behind the hotel. We’d met GBK online when they arranged a great giveaway package for our DogTipper.com site in conjunction with their MTV Movie Awards gifting lounge, which included many dog products. This weekend’s event, which honored Emmy nominees and presenters, featured many luxury travel, fashion, and beauty vendors such as Caribbean Living magazine, Indique Hair International, Invicta Watch Group, Mrs. Smith’s Bags, Pinup Couture, and others so we were eager to attend.
The list of stars that stopped by the gifting lounge included:
“Lost” star Henry Ian Cusick:
Actor Joe Mantegna (who through the years has received three Emmy nominations for “The Last Don,” “The Rat Pack” and “The Starter Wife”):
Mike O’Malley, nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor – Comedy Series for his role in “Glee”:
Gregory Itzin, nominated for Guest Actor in a Drama Series for his role in “24”:
Actress Melissa Joan Hart:

Robert Morse, nominated for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series:
We’re looking forward to watching the Emmy Awards!
