• Cookie CAREavan

    May 26, 2011

    My obsession with hotels and cookies has been taken to a whole new level.

    DoubleTree by Hilton is taking its beloved signature chocolate chip cookie on the road to celebrate its 25th anniversary with the Cookie CAREavan tour. Throughout the summer, the Cookie CAREavan will travel coast-to-coast stopping in 50 U.S. cities to bring its warm welcome to tired travelers and workers as well as local charities across America.

    TOMORROW (May 27th), the Cookie CAREavan will stop at City Hall Plaza in Boston from 10 AM – 6  PM to deliver FREE chocolate chip cookies.

    Free cookies!?! Sign me up!

    No, seriously, I’m planning to get free cookies tomorrow, so, if you’re in the area, I would love for you to join me at City Hall Plaza! It is Cookie Friday after all! Let me know if you want to meet up!

    If you’re wondering whether the Cookie CAREavan is coming to your area, you can found out on Facebook (Facebook.com/DoubleTree).

    um yep, that sounds divine! I need to check out when they’re stopping by my place.

    And their cookies are SO good. We stayed at a Doubletree for a night of our honeymoon and got to eat the cookies. YUMM

    My dad and I once took so many free cookies from the lobby of a hotel that they literally stopped putting them out… #fail/#win

    I mean, it was over the course of a few hours, but. The front desk associate was not pleased…

    That is awesome! Those cookies are so good. I still remember from the time I stayed at the Double Tree in Vancouver, BC. Getting a cookie was a sweet surprise!

    DoubleTree cookies are absolutely the best!!!! I remember when my sister and I were younger we would beg our parents to stay at a DoubleTree just to get those cookies! :) We would eat them even before we would get up to our room! I haven’t had one in years!

    So jealous! I’m not in Boston right now, because I’m home from college, but if I were there, I’d totally come for a free cookie (or 10 by using disguises ;-) ) and to meet up! I’m also missing the San Francisco one (which is close to me) because I’ll be out of town then, too. Darn!

    Omg. DoubleTree cookies are the best. Last time I stayed at one of their hotels I gained 5 pounds in 3 days from all of the deliciousness. Totally worth it though! :)

    I took part in a cookie caravan this morning in NYC. At first I was so confused, but then oh so happy.

    What a great tour! Cookies alone are amazing…Free cookies, however, they’re in a league of their own! Enjoy!
