Hilton and Hallmark Channel are teaming up to give travellers, fans, and viewers the chance to immerse themselves in a festive dreamscape inspired by Hallmark’s beloved “Countdown to Christmas” movies, at select Hilton Hotels & Resorts properties in New York, Houston and Chicago.
Holiday movie enthusiasts can book their stay in the limited-time, custom-designed Hallmark Channel “Countdown to Christmas” Holiday Suites by Hilton at three Hilton Hotels & Resorts properties across the United States. From “Hallmark’s Holiday Sweetest Suite” at Hilton New York Times Square, to the “Haul Out the Holly” suite at Hilton Americas-Houston to a “Santa Summit” suite at Hilton Chicago, the specialty suites will deliver Hilton’s unparalleled hospitality while bringing the warmth and charm of Hallmark’s beloved holiday stories to life for a season of holiday cheer. Each guest room has been lovingly crafted to transport guests into a world of cozy firesides, twinkle-lit trees and the timeless spirit of holiday joy.
"We're thrilled to partner with Hallmark for a collaboration that embodies the joy of the holiday season and brings to life the light and warmth of hospitality we show our guests every day. This is a great representation of Hilton’s commitment to delivering immersive and unforgettable experiences during every stay. Our collaboration with Hallmark allows us to leverage timeless storytelling to bring an added level of excitement during the holidays," said Matt Schuyler, chief brand officer for Hilton.
Each of the Hilton Hotels & Resorts and Hallmark Channel suites will feature festive decor that is reflective of the property’s locale, as well as symbols from “Countdown to Christmas” movies.
"Our partnership with Hilton is the perfect holiday pairing. These festive, showstopping stays are the ultimate ‘suite’ treat that will deliver on our fans’ growing desire to immerse themselves in the Hallmark brand and the wonderful world of Hallmark Channel Christmas movies. We’re proud to help guests indulge in a winter wonderland of aspirational holiday décor, charming Christmas activities, and endless ways to experience the Hallmark holiday spirit,” said Lara Richardson, chief marketing officer for Hallmark Media.
Each guest room will include a custom-decorated Christmas tree and a complimentary hot cocoa station. To keep the holiday cheer going all season long, each guest suite will also include Hallmark Channel branded takeaways guests can enjoy with their loved ones during or after their holiday stay. Items include Hallmark Channel Wine, Bissinger’s cocoa mix and hot cocoa bombs, Republic of Tea products, wine glasses, mugs, and more.
This year, guests at all three properties can get into the holiday spirit with the Hallmark Holiday Cosmopolitan, a unique cocktail offering crafted by Hilton’s expert mixologists and uniquely designed to invoke every Hallmark lover’s small-town holiday dreams while staying in the big city. The festive cocktail will be served alongside a zero-proof cocktail for all cheerful travellers to enjoy throughout the season.
