Our family loves to travel; indeed, over the past 14 months we’ve visited 11 countries. It’s not always easy with three young kids. Okay, at times it is downright painful, but it is all worth it. We love seeing the world through our children’s eyes and going on adventures as a family. At the end of a long day of travel or sight-seeing, when we settle into a hotel room we want to relax. We expect a clean room, comfortable beds and plenty of room for our circus.
With the sheer volume of hotels to pick from, we rely heavily on the recommendations of friends. The Women’s Choice Award by WomenCertified uses exactly that idea to recognize brands and products women actually use and trust. The Award represents “women are helping women make smart choices and identify those businesses that collectively are the most recommended and trusted by women. It’s a point of difference for the business and a symbol of empowerment for women as it simplifies her choice.”
Yesterday, Hampton Hotels received the 2013 Women’s Choice Award for America’s Best in Travel, placing first in family getaways and overall service in the Midrange Hotel category. Women’s Choice Award is the only award that identifies brands that women recommend; awards are given to a limited number of brands and products every year based on consumer surveys.
“We are honored that women nationwide have selected Hampton Hotels for the 2013 Women’s Choice Award,” said Judy Christa-Cathey, vice president of marketing, focused service brands at Hilton Worldwide. “At Hampton Hotels, we pride ourselves on anticipating the needs of all our guests, particularly women, whether they are traveling on business or with family and friends. We know our guests expect consistent and high-quality service during every stay, and this award affirms that our approach to service and our overall brand personality, which we like to call ‘Hamptonality,’ continues to resonate with female travelers.”
My husband and I usually work together to plan our family vacations, and I do my fair share of it online. Knowing that other women recommend Hampton for family travel adds another level of trust that the brand’s properties will be a good fit for our family of five. Because, let’s be real: travel with kids is far different from travel without kids and there’s nothing worse than being in a non-kid-friendly establishment.
