(NYSE: HLT) award-winning all-suite, extended-stay hotel
brands, distributed 1,000 “suite travel” kits and tickets to the
Thanksgiving Day Parade to travelers departing from or arriving to
LaGuardia Airport on the day before Thanksgiving. The stress-relieving
surprises are a result of a survey announced by the extended-stay hotel
brands last month which revealed what turns travelers into a “Scrooge”
during holiday travel and their stress-relieving response to make the
season merry.

Each “suite travel” kit, given to those departing out of Terminal B,
included the essential items that survey respondents claimed would make
their trips more delightful – snacks, a voucher for free Wi-Fi and a
wireless mobile battery charger. The kit also included ear buds, given
that the number one response to counteracting stress while traveling was
listening to music. Big surprises were also in store for those staying
in the Big Apple for the holiday as travelers in LaGuardia’s baggage
claim area participated in a competitive matching game in which five
winners received tickets to the Thanksgiving Day Parade where Homewood
Suites’ mascot Lewis the Duck and his family have their own float.

“Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites by Hilton are focused on providing
welcoming service, and we want to do our part to ensure Thanksgiving
travelers arrive to their destination stress-free and ready to celebrate
with family,” said Bill Duncan, global head of brand management,
Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites by Hilton. “As revealed by our study,
we want travelers to avoid their previous bad behavior and instead focus
on the positive benefits of travel.”

Conducted by Wakefield Research*, survey results revealed that 44
percent of respondents lost their tempers, one-third have yelled at a
stranger during past trips, and nearly one-quarter cancelled travel all
together to avoid stress. However, the survey didn’t just focus on the
moment when travel stress began, but also what could be done once the
traveler reaches their destination. For instance, hotels such as
Homewood Suites and Home2 Suites by Hilton are ideal for families as
they provide the top-rated amenities travelers claimed would make them
feel most comfortable: reliable Wi-Fi, free breakfast and spacious rooms.
