Unwrapping Hilton’s Holiday Gift to Unsung Heroes: Well‑Deserved Stays and Unforgettable Memories for Parents

Hilton Holiday Gift for Parents - Julian Shapiro-Barnum and Cassidy

As the holiday lights twinkle and the festive season wraps us in its warm embrace, Hilton is bringing a special surprise to the unsung heroes of this magical time: parents. This year, Hilton collaborated with Julian Shapiro-Barnum, the creative force behind @RecessTherapy and the discoverer of the delightful "Corn Kid," to concoct the ultimate holiday surprise for hardworking caregivers.

In this heartwarming video, three adorable children and Julian conspired to design an unforgettable experience for their parents, all made possible by the thoughtful and dedicated team at Hilton. The result? A series of charmingly whimsical events that transformed ordinary hotel stays into extraordinary memories.

Imagine stepping into a room overflowing with 124 pizzas and 100 apples, a delightful feast for both the eyes and the palate. Or consider the serenity of a matcha-themed relaxation suite, a tranquil haven for parents to unwind. And for the family that loves dessert and games, a pup-friendly craft room bursting with candy offered the perfect setting for quality family time. 

These carefully crafted experiences underscored a touching truth: all these children wanted was more time with their family. It's a gentle reminder of the holiday season's true essence — being together with loved ones.

Hilton, ever attentive to the needs of parents, has gone a step further. Recognizing the ceaseless efforts of parents not just during the festive season but all year round, Hilton offers parent-friendly packages and experiences to pamper these everyday heroes: 

At The Logan Philadelphia, Curio Collection by Hilton, weary holiday hosts can rejuvenate with the exclusive Holiday Host Recovery Retreat spa package. Meanwhile, burnt-out parents can find solace in the Rest & Rejuvenate Spa Indulgence Package at Cape Rey Carlsbad Beach, a Hilton Resort & Spa. At this coastal resort, a variety of spa treatments await, including couples massages followed by a vanilla bourbon bath or a chardonnay bubble bath with an indulgent foot scrub and massage.

For those seeking spiritual enrichment, Hilton Sedona Resort at Bell Rock offers a unique range of energy rituals, including sound bowl therapy. Their eforea spa's Vortex treatment promises a much-needed rejuvenation.

And it's not just the parents who are in for a treat. Hilton Cancun, an All-Inclusive Resort, offers a paradise for families with its splash pool, outdoor playground, Kids club and a variety of daily activities. Lastly, Hilton Maldives Amingiri Resort & Spa features an array of thoughtful amenities, including well-designed offerings to cater to babies and older children – from a dedicated kids’ club to a teenagers-only rooftop lounge – making it the perfect exotic holiday getaway for the family.

Once again, Hilton demonstrates its commitment to making every stay special, and with Hilton Honors, guests can elevate their stay with once-in-a-lifetime access to experiences, exclusive perks and more.
