Pet-friendly Hotel Brand To Host Nationwide “Yappy Hours” Including Complimentary Toys for Four-Legged Guests


MCLEAN, Va. – April 5, 2016 – With 65 percent of U.S. households owning pets*, it’s no secret Americans adore their four-legged family just as much as their two-legged kin. With that in mind, Home2 Suites by HiltonHilton Worldwide’s mid-tier, all-suite hotel brand, is celebrating National Pet Day with more than 80 parties nationwide and the release of its latest “Fresh New Way” video showcasing the pet-friendly brand.


“So many people love their four-legged friends, and embracing our pet-friendly culture on National Pet Day seemed like a natural way to introduce our ‘Fresh, New Way’ video,” said Christian Kuhn, vice president of marketing, Extended Stay Brands. “Home2 Suites by Hilton focuses on helping our guests shape their stay with amenities that fit their lifestyle, and making it easy for travelers to bring their pets achieves this.”


Every Home2 Suites property will offer National Pet Day parties on April 11 that will include gifts like bandanas and Frisbees to encourage guests and team members to bring their pets to join the fun events. The nationwide celebrations will culminate with a feature party at Home2 Suites by Hilton Seattle Airport, where Sir Charles Barkley the French Bulldog will serve as a special party host for festivities that will also include a pet-adoption event with Emerald City Pet Rescue.


In tandem, Home2 Suites will also launch its latest “Fresh New Way” video that focuses on the pet-friendly culture of the brand. In the hidden-camera short, the central character is “Colby” a bearded collie who interacts unexpectedly with Home2 Suites guests, striking up a fun conversation talking about their day and hotel stay. The video will go live on National Pet Day
