DoubleTree by Hilton is welcoming the holidays with none other than their famous, gooey, delicious cookies. To share the welcoming spirit of the holidays, DoubleTree is encouraging people everywhere to stop in to one of their properties in the United States between today and December 24, 2016 for a free, warm signature cookie. You don’t need to be a guest at the hotel, they simply want to put smiles on faces during the season.


DoubleTree is also running a contest via Instagram that goes through December 19, 2016.

To enter, follow DoubleTree on Instagram and comment on their Instagram post about the contest with your favorite drink pairing for the DoubleTree cookie, using the hashtag #12daysofchristmas.
