At the participating properties, guests can experience a customized regionally inspired, four-course tasting menu specially created by the hotel’s Executive Chef. Guests of legal drinking age can enjoy wine pairings chosen by the wine steward or sommelier. Upon check-in, guests will receive a Food Network welcome package including a Food Network tote, cookbook, restaurant guide, and a Food Network DVD of their travel shows.The fact that the Food Network is getting involved in travel is not terribly surprising. As the press release states, there are a number of culinary/travel shows on the network and a fairly robust travel section on the FN web site. Also, it is able to leverage a bit of travel content through its sister network, Fine Living, so it’s a smart fit.
The “Food Network Travel Package” is available at the following Hilton Hotel properties: New York - The New York Hilton; Los Angeles - The Beverly Hilton and Hilton Costa Mesa; Chicago - Hilton Chicago; San Francisco - Hilton San Francisco; Honolulu - Hilton Hawaiian Village (Oahu); New Orleans - Hilton New Orleans Riverside; Austin - Hilton Austin; Atlanta - Hilton Atlanta; Boston - Hilton Back Bay; and in Arizona - Hilton Sedona.No sign of the specials on the Hilton.com web site yet, but keep an eye out if you have travel plans for one of the cities above.
