Calling all Hallmark holiday movie fans! Prepare to plop yourself right into a movie plot this holiday season, thanks to a new partnership between the Hallmark Channel and Hilton Hotels.
Hallmark’s Christmas flicks have become as embedded in holiday culture and tradition as Mariah Carey’s ubiquitous song. With the network cranking out more than 30 or so original movies each year, it gives us plenty of inspo for holiday romance and escapades in real-life.
Enter the Hallmark specialty suites in three major cities at Hilton Hotels. The hotel chain has effectively decked the halls in grand rom-com fashion at their outposts in Chicago, New York’s Times Square and Houston.
Starting today, you can grab a mug of hot cocoa and settle in for a warm and cozy winter’s night in the spirited suites, each inspired by one of Hallmark’s beloved holiday flicks. Whether you choose “Hallmark’s Holiday Sweetest Suite” at Hilton New York Times Square, the “Haul Out the Holly” suite at Hilton Americas-Houston or the “Santa Summit” suite at Hilton Chicago, each one has been “lovingly crafted to transport guests into a world of cozy firesides, twinkle-lit trees and the timeless spirit of holiday joy,” according to a Hilton press release.
“Our collaboration with Hallmark allows us to leverage timeless storytelling to bring an added level of excitement during the holidays,” states Matt Schuyler, Hilton Hotel’s brand manager.
In New York, the “Sweetest Suite” boasts scratch ‘n’ sniff wall decals, a candylane-like tree and even candy-cane striped curtains. Houston’s “Haul Out the Holly” features jaw-dropping holiday designs and light treatments throughout, including enchanting glowing pillows, a light-up holiday village that will dazzle the world’s biggest Christmas enthusiasts, a custom holiday light decorating station, a gingerbread bar, and more.
Chicago’s “Santa Summit,” inspired by the forthcoming movie of the same name, offers vintage Santa décor, life-sized reindeer, a Santa-themed bed and cookie kit, a heartwarming wall installation for Letters to Santa and more. Each one also comes complete with a hot cocoa bar.
“We’re proud to help guests indulge in a winter wonderland of aspirational holiday décor, charming Christmas activities, and endless ways to experience the Hallmark holiday spirit,” shares Hallmark channel’s chief marketing officer Lara Richardson.
While you’re opening up your heart to all the Christmas spirit has to offer, be sure to also crack open that wallet—a stay in one of the specialty suites will run you upwards of $1,000 a night. But maybe that’s a reasonable price to pay for Hallmark fans who want to escape into their favorite small-screen drama this holiday season.
