    Hilton's Doubletree chain puts chocolate chip cookie on U.S. road trip:)

    Starting Thursday, Hilton's Doubletree brand will put its signature chocolate chip cookie on a cross-country road show with a special truck in honor of the cookie's 25th anniversary.:)

    The "welcome" cookie caravan and social media campaign are also designed to promote Doubletree news, including a new longer name ("Doubletree by Hilton") and a hotel property makeover that's been in the works for years. The chain has 252 locations in 18 countries.:)

    Still operating tho! As explained to me. The holding company for the hotel wanted to renegotiate the debt service. The banker did not agree and started Foreclosure proceedings. By filing for Chapter 11, the foreclosure is stopped. and the Hotel and the Holding company get to negotiate payments to creditors.

    The Westin La Paloma here in Tucson used a Foreclosure Sale to renegotiate Debt Service earlier this year.

    So. Even though the hotels may have a little financial trouble they are still operating.

    Come out and visit the Desert. Rates are really cheap during the summer.
