DoubleTree by Hilton Celebrates “National Cookie Month” throughout October with Sweet Rides for Amtrak Travelers

MCLEAN, Va.--()--In celebration of National Cookie Month in October, DoubleTree by Hilton is partnering with Amtrak, the nation’s leading rail operator, to deliver “sweet rides” throughout the month as part of the hotel brand’s ongoing global Cookie Care campaign. Partnering with the Amtrak Guest Rewards team, DoubleTree by Hilton will delight passengers on select routes across the U.S., sharing thousands of its signature chocolate chip cookies that welcome guests at DoubleTree by Hilton hotels around the world.

DoubleTree by Hilton will be sharing chocolate chip cookies with riders on select services along the following routes/dates:

  • October 8: Washington – Baltimore
  • October 15: New York – Stamford, Conn.
  • October 22: Los Angeles – Irvine, Calif.
  • October 29: Chicago – Milwaukee

“We love offering our unmatched service culture and commitment to delivering special comforts and acts of kindness to travelers around the world – no matter where they are in their journey,” said John Greenleaf, global head, DoubleTree by Hilton. “It all starts with our iconic chocolate chip cookie welcome at check-in, and this month we are partnering with Amtrak to bring the same cookie that our guests love to travelers beyond our hotel doors.”

Throughout October, travelers and fans are invited to share a photo or story from their own “sweet” DoubleTree by Hilton experience using #CookieCare for the chance to win sweet rewards, ranging from free cookies to hotel stays.

In addition to enjoying surprise giveaways throughout National Cookie Month, Amtrak passengers will also continue to have the ability to earn Amtrak Guest Rewards points just by staying with DoubleTree by Hilton and other hotels and resorts within the Hilton Worldwide portfolio.

From New York to New Orleans, and London to Singapore, DoubleTree by Hilton’s Cookie Care campaign has surprised countless travelers since 2014, with much more to come. The hotel brand will continue to spread Cookie Care throughout 2015, celebrating Veteran’s Day in San Diego and ringing in the holiday season in New York City.

Everyone is invited to follow along on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram (@DoubleTree) and join the conversation by using #CookieCare. For additional information, photography and video footage, media can visit http://news.doubletree.com/CookieCare.
