No Tricks, Just Treats! DoubleTree by Hilton Shares Its Legendary Chocolate Chip Cookie This Halloween


Witches, monsters, ghosts and goblins are all welcome to DoubleTree by Hilton this Halloween for a freshly baked, sweet treat – on the house! For the ninth year, the hotel brand continues its annual community tradition of offering its legendary, warm chocolate chip cookies to any trick-or-treaters that walk into any of its nearly 250 participating locations in the U.S. and Canada. No purchase or hotel stay is necessary. Trick-or-treaters may simply visit the front desk at any DoubleTree by Hilton hotel on Wednesday, October 31, 2012, to be welcomed with a delicious, warm chocolate chip cookie, while supplies last.

“DoubleTree by Hilton enjoys sharing in the spirit of treating this haunted holiday. The cookie giveaway gives our hotels the opportunity to connect with their communities every year,” said Kieran Donahue, vice president – global brand marketing, DoubleTree by Hilton. “We are the brand that believes that it's the little things that mean everything, and our signature treat can definitely sweeten anyone's Halloween.”

For more than 25 years, the DoubleTree by Hilton tradition of a chocolate chip cookie at check-in has set the standard in welcoming hotel guests. DoubleTree gives out approximately 65,000 warm, chocolate chip cookie welcomes each day; that's nearly 24,000,000 each year. Each cookie weighs a hearty 2 ounces and boasts an average of 20 chocolate chips. Every DoubleTree by Hilton hotel follows the same recipe and exact baking instructions to the letter to ensure consumers receive the same delicious experience no matter which DoubleTree you visit. That's why they taste so good!
