DoubleTree by Hilton Announces DTour + Win a night at the Hilton!

CONTESTS | | May 16, 2013 at 6:28 pm


Congratulations Kim!

When I was approached by DoubleTree by Hilton about DTour I thought how wicked smart that it was to leverage working with Google. What is DTour? It is a first-of-its-kind YouTube channel for the hotel industry, created in collaboration with Google.  Being a blogger I already know the value of content. User content is so much more believable than some advertising.

I love that you can learn so much from other travelers and add to the conversation. Nothing like traveling to open up worlds as as it my passion I am so excited, now that my girls are older, to explore with them. Of course traveling is way nicer when you have a lovely hotel to spend the night in, right?  Well DoubleTree by Hilton is pretty excited about this amazing launch of DTour and they are doing something pretty cool to celebrate.

About DTour:

Using a new technology for YouTube created by software developer ThisMoment, DTour was created for travelers eager to ‘take a DTour’ – and keen to share their experiences with like-minded adventure-seekers around the world. In fact, DTour is the first custom-built YouTube brand channel in the hotel industry. Users can also explore other travelers’ favorite photos, videos, tips and stories to get inspired to plan the trips they’ve always wanted to take.

They have launched a contest called DTour of a Lifetime competition where 6 people will be awarded an adventure of a lifetime.  Each winner will receive a travel assignment to one of six continents where DoubleTree by Hilton properties are located – from the Americas to Australia and Asia to Africa – experiencing DoubleTree by Hilton hospitality, meeting locals and curating their own travel tips and stories for DTour.

How wicked awesome is that? I can’t see a single reason you would not want to enter, can you?

And to get you in the traveling mood, how does one night in a DoubleTree by Hilton property sound?
