Hilton Family Hotels, American Express, and Shutterfly Announce New Rewards Offering to Make Travel Easier and More Memorable In ‘09
Capture Your Best Travel Memories Online with the Help of Hilton Family Hotels, American Express, and Shutterfly
“We’re seeing more travelers recognize how simple and convenient it is to book their group room blocks online,” said Jeffrey Diskin, senior vice president – customer marketing, Hilton Hotels Corporation. “As customers turn to our online tools to plan their events, what better reward than allowing them to capture their travel memories using photo products from Shutterfly.com.”
As summer kicks into full swing, customers planning major travel events in the upcoming months – notably weddings, family reunions, and travel for sports teams – can easily take advantage of this bonus perk by booking and managing room blocks online – a huge time-saver that allows guests 24/7 booking access to real-time inventory across the Hilton Family of Hotels including hotels such as Hilton, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Doubletree, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hampton, Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Grand Vacations, Homewood Suites by Hilton, Home2 Suites by Hilton and Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts. By simply booking using an American Express Card, once guests reach the $2,000 spend threshold for their room block or event, they are eligible to receive a $55 shopping spree at Shutterfly to purchase products such as a hard-cover photo book, photo prints, or a collage poster – all via the Shutterfly web site.
In addition to the perks from Shutterfly, guests are also rewarded with the invaluable gifts of time and convenience by using Hilton Family’s online group booking tool. After a customer books their group block (anywhere from five to 25 rooms) online, they receive a call from the hotel, who offers additional assistance and support. The customer also receives immediate access to a tool which allows them to review which guests have booked rooms and which guests need a gentle reminder, as well as a tool that lets them create a personalized Webpage for their event and include a direct link to allow guests to book their room in the group’s hotel block.
