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.
