Hilton gets into the holiday season swing
The holiday season is well and truly upon us, and Hilton is certainly getting into the spirit of things. Their hotels in the United States and beyond are being decked out with glitter, fairy lights and lashings of Christmas cheer. We check out some of the holiday transformations that have taken place across Hilton’s properties.
Hilton Americas Houston – a sweet sensation
Hilton’s Houston property has really gone all out on the holiday season. The main highlight of their decorations is one for the kids, and those who have a sweet tooth. A life-sized gingerbread house, constructed from an incredible 800 pounds of gingerbread, 800 pounds of sugar, 1000 pounds of chocolate and 300 pounds of different types of sweets. The display features a chocolate family seated on chocolate chairs at a chocolate table inside, and the oven is filled with trays of freshly baked gingerbread cookies. Although the gingerbread house and its contents are for display only and not to be consumed, guests can taste the real thing in the hotel’s restaurant, where they can try the famous gingerbread pumpkin-butterscotch trifle with spiced chocolate brittle.
Hampton Inn & Suites Manchester – keeping it classic
This charming property in Vermont could be described as quintessentially Christmassy around this time of year. Located in downtown Manchester, guests staying at this hotel over the holiday season can take advantage of the picturesque setting by hopping aboard a horse and carriage for a turn around the town. To while away a few hours in the afternoon, why not indulge in some gingerbread making classes, or embark on a festive journey through the mountains on the Elf Express holiday train?
Hilton Tokyo Odaiba – thinking pink
Anyone planning on spending the holidays in Japan should plan a few days in the Hilton Tokyo Odaiba. While green and red might be more closely associated with Christmas in the west, in Japan, pink is the order of the day. Guests wearing pink can claim a complimentary drink, and a giant pink tree adorns the Christmas-themed buffet area, where people can nibble away on glittering edible flowers and choose from an array of holiday-friendly desserts.
