MCLEAN, Va. - Traveling to New York City to see the Statue of Liberty, hanging ten in the Pacific Ocean or exploring Europe's most charming cities are just some of the different travel experiences people have on their wish list. Hilton Garden Inn wants to inspire people to make those getaways happen by hitting the road for its Garden Getaway Tour, planting the seed to embark on their next great adventure.

To highlight the great things to see and do across the country and around the world, Hilton Garden Inn will visit key markets, beginning in New York City on April 10 and 11, deploying their Garden Getaway Greeters, characters dressed to represent these iconic travel destinations, including the Statue of Liberty for New York City, a hula dancer for Hawaii and a Queen's Guard for London. The Greeters, who will be on site to take pictures with consumers, will be dressed from head to toe in live materials - from flowers to leaves to moss - showcasing the vibrancy and freshness that characterize Hilton Garden Inn hotels.

"Through the Garden Getaway Tour, we are reminding people of all the exciting possibilities available for their next trip and how Hilton Garden Inn can provide them with their best stay," said Judy Christa-Cathey, vice president of global brand marketing, Hilton Garden Inn & Hampton Hotels. "With more than 600 locations worldwide, you can count on us to provide you with the space you need to feel peaceful and alive after an active day of discovering new places and connecting with loved ones." 

As part of the Garden Getaway Tour, consumers will have the chance to win the ultimate getaway to a new Hilton Garden Inn located in Hawaii. To enter, consumers in each tour market must capture a photo with a Garden Getaway Greeter and share on Twitter, Instagram, or on the Hilton Garden Inn Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/HiltonGardenInn) using #HGIGardenGetaway and #entry, and they will automatically be entered for the chance to win. Each tour stop will also feature fun giveaways of travel essentials, including Neutrogena® lotion and QR-coded luggage tags, giving consumers an additional nudge to take that weekend getaway they have been dreaming about. Those not able to attend the in-person events can win prizes as well via the brand's Facebook page; prizes include Keurig® brewing systems, Neutrogena® gift sets and Hilton Garden Inn blankets.

The four-city Garden Getaway Tour will kick off in New York City, during National Garden Month on April 10 and 11, at the Hilton Garden Inn New York/Central Park South-Midtown West before visiting the city's most popular areas, such as Central Park, Columbus Circle, Times Square and Union Square.
