Did you know that more than half of Americans don’t use all their vacation time each year, according to the U.S. Travel Association? To encourage Americans to use their vacation time and explore, the last Tuesday in January has been designated National Plan for Vacation Day. But, when it comes to vacation, a recent survey by Hilton revealed a getaway is about more than the destination, with 93% of travelers believing where they stay can make or break their trip.
The Stay is the heart of the more than 7,000 Hilton properties around the world, offering Confirmed Connecting Rooms for families, thousands of pet-friendly hotels, luxurious wellness offerings and reliable and friendly service.
