This National Plan A Vacation Day, Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites by Hilton Invite Travelers to Seize the Weekend

Planning a trip can be difficult when it’s coupled with the constant stressors of everyday life – whether it be work, school or kids. In fact, 74% of people are stressed out by just the idea of planning a vacation [Harvard Business Review].

With new insights proving that shorter, more frequent vacations are equally as refreshing as longer trips, Embassy Suites, Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites by Hilton – joined forces to prove that everyone should make space for travel and that planning a long weekend getaway can be simple and stress-free.

On this #NationalPlanAVacationDay (Jan. 28) these all-suite brands are helping people make space for travel with the Seize the Weekend Calendar at HiltonSeizetheWeekend.com. It is full of inspiration to help them embrace their long weekends for travel – from popular holidays to more surprising opportunities to get away. Whether travelers are looking for an extended break around Thanksgiving or to treat their pet on National Dog Day, they’ll be in good hands at an Embassy, Homewood or Home2 Suites by Hilton property. Since a long weekend escape is the “spacious suite” of your calendar, below are our vacation recommendations for 2020 to help you get started planning:

  • It’s easier to celebrate International Day of Happiness (March 20) when travelers can sprawl out and feel right at home. With spacious suites with separate living and sleeping spaces, travelers can spring into a weekend vacation centered around happiness and treating oneself at a Homewood Suites by Hilton. At Homewood Suites by Hilton New Orleans French Quarter, guests can avoid the crowds as they enjoy comfortably cool March weather at the Big Easy’s most popular landmarks. Guests can go out to one of NOLA’s famous restaurants and those who are truly inspired by the local Creole culture can try their hands at cooking some Gumbo or Jambalaya at the suite’s full kitchen. Travelers will have all they need to have a weekend holiday full of happiness.
  • Travelers can combine Independence Day (July 4) and National Bikini Day (July 5) for a mid-summer beach getaway with the whole family in St. Augustine, the oldest continuously inhabited city in the continental United States. People should look no further than the Embassy Suites by Hilton St. Augustine Beach Oceanfront Resort as they celebrate America’s Independence Day while dawning their favorite beach apparel. Guests are invited to lounge beachside and enjoy the crystal-clear water views or spread out with the kiddos in Embassy Suites’ unique two-room suites. These suites are perfectly equipped for comfort and convenience and allow the whole family to turn the space into a home away from home with a private bedroom and separate living room with a sleeper-sofa.
  • National Dog Day (Aug. 26) is a paw-fect opportunity to close out the summer and bond with furry family members. Chicago is known as a fantastic summertime escape and at the Home2 Suites by Hilton Chicago River North, travelers will get all the wags as they explore the Windy City’s most-famous spots whether they celebrate the holiday with Great Danes or Pomeranians. Guests can also take advantage of the complimentary breakfast and connect with fellow pet parents.

With more than 1,000 locations across the U.S., there’s always a destination that fits the bill for a quick weekend trip, whatever the occasion!
