Beverly Hills, CA–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – BUSINESS WIRE)–February 1, 2008–Food connoisseurs and travelers alike can enjoy a savory spread and Food Network’s culinary travel know-how this coming year with Hilton’s Food Network Travel Package. Hilton Hotels and Food Network have again collaborated on the Food Network Travel Package, an exclusive offering that this year features a regionally-inspired culinary treat provided by Hilton and delivered to the guest room upon arrival, as well as a handy travel guide filled with tasty destinations as seen on Food Network’s array of travel shows. The package will be available in 18 U.S. cities at participating hotels.
Starting in February, guests who book the Food Network Travel Package at http://www.hilton.com/foodnetwork will have the opportunity to taste a locally-inspired food and beverage amenity or a chef’s special creation provided by Hilton, shortly after arriving to their rooms. Guests may indulge in delights like a chocolate crafted piano filled with handmade truffles accompanied by a delightful beverage, or a mushroom and crabmeat verrine showcasing Kennett Square mushrooms from the “mushroom capital of the world” paired with local grown tomatoes and bay crabmeat. In addition to this culinary welcome, guests who book the Food Network Travel Package will be given information on how to enjoy a tasty journey in cities across the country. Guests will receive a Food Network tote bag containing a Food Network Kitchens cookbook, a compilation DVD of Food Network show highlights, and a multi-city travel guide containing dining destinations as seen on Food Network.

“Travel should feed your appetite and your soul,” said Jeff Diskin, senior vice president of brand management, Hilton Hotels and Resorts. “Travel, discovery and good food should go hand in hand, and the locally-inspired food and beverage treats are a great welcome to our food-loving guests, and a delectable start to the culinary experiences at our hotels.”
Another food package option from Hilton is the Bed & Breakfast Package. Whether tacking on a few extra days to a business trip or simply taking a few days to recharge their batteries, travelers looking to get away from it all can book the new Hilton Bed & Breakfast Package. A relaxing stay is made even better with early check-in and late check-out leaving plenty of time for two guests to enjoy the signature Hilton Breakfast – a more than 80-item breakfast buffet that features color-coded labels to visually assist guests in managing their dietary needs. The labels on the buffet denote whether a menu item is low-cholesterol, low-fat, high-fiber, low-calorie, high-energy or an indulgence, making it easy for guests to remain faithful to their health routines. This offering allows guests to have more choice and control over the first meal of their day while enjoying a variety of quality food and beverage items, as well as local specialties.
