Patriotism Pays: Free Doubletree Cookies on July First and Fourth



    Celebrate Your National Pride in Canada and The United States With
Complimentary Chocolate Chip Cookies from Doubletree Hotels

    BEVERLY HILLS, CALIF., June 28 /CNW/ - On the First and Fourth of July,
two days filled with fun, fireworks and patriotic traditions, Doubletree
Hotels is offering the "sweet treat" of complimentary, freshly-baked chocolate
chip cookies to anyone who walks into any of its more than 180 properties on
Canada Day and Independence Day. No purchase is necessary. Limit one
fresh-baked chocolate chip cookie per person. People may simply walk into any
Doubletree hotel between 12:01 a.m. and 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, July 1 at
Canadian Doubletree hotels and Wednesday, July 4 at U.S. Doubletree locations
to be welcomed with a delicious, warm chocolate chip cookie to commemorate
each country's beloved holiday, while supplies last.

    The Doubletree tradition of greeting guests at check-in with its
legendary, warm chocolate chip cookie has set the standard for welcoming hotel
guests. More than 150 million of the 2 1/2 ounce cookies, which boast an
average of 20 chocolate chips, have been presented to travelers during the
past two decades. The third annual nationwide summer cookie giveaway is one of
the ways Doubletree brings to life the Hilton Family of Hotels' mission of
filling the earth with the light and warmth of hospitality.

    "Our `Free Cookies on the First and Fourth' promotion is a fun way to
celebrate patriotism and satisfy chocolate cravings across Canada and the
United States, without even needing to be a guest," said Dave Horton, senior
vice president - brand management. "We're expecting to give out thousands of
cookies to our guests and our communities this Canada Day and Independence Day
- certainly more likely than any bakery or cookie company will sell on these
special days!"
