You don’t have to be Santa to get free cookies this year. In the spirit of the season, DoubleTree by Hilton is offering free cookies to everyone through December 24, 2017 as part of their “12 Days of Cookies” promotion!

You don’t even have to be staying at the hotel, and if you are just passing through simply stop at the front desk to get one of their delicious free warm chocolate chip walnut cookies. You can be out and about running errands or shopping, and drop by for a treat.

I lived briefly at a DoubleTree hotel many, many years ago, and have a soft spot for the DoubleTree cookies. Even though the cookies are typically given out at check-in, during my stay I got to know the staff pretty well, and they offered me cookies pretty much any time I wanted. I didn’t often take them up on the offer, but it sure was nice to walk in the door and have them give me one of those warm, gooey treats.

DoubleTree is also running a contest where you can win a free stay at a Double Tree hotel. All you have to do to enter is tweet a photo of your “festive holiday attire” and use the hashtags #sweetwelcome and #contest. Two winners will receive two free night certificates. You can also scroll through the submissions to see how festive some folks really get when it comes to their holiday attire (and there’s already some stiff competition out there!).

Today also happens to be Day 5 of Magic of Miles 12 Days of Giveaways.

To enter today’s contest for a chance at iTunes gift cards, airline pajamas, or travel swag galore, let me know in the comments below if you’ve had a DoubleTree cookie before, if you like them, or that you’d be excited to win today’s contest prize.

  1. Today is a yes to all. I’ve had a DoubleTree cookie before, I like them and I’d be excited to win today’s contest prize.

  2. Also wanted to say, thanks for the generosity and opportunity to win! Maybe Santa and Lady Luck will visit me this season lol.

  3. It’s been a while since I don’t stay at DT a lot, but my last cookie was memorable because it was still warm… what could be better?

  4. Just made me think what would be better than cookies and I can’t think of anything, except maybe Tomato soup and crackers on a cold winters day 😉

  5. I love that the Doubletree gives cookies upon check in. Some hotels in Washington offer apples to guests (available at any time of the day and not just at check in.) I would be thrilled if I went to Wisconsin and was presented with a gift of Wisconsin Cheese upon arrival.

  6. I would be excited if I won this giveaway (or any of the giveaways during this promotion) Thank you for hosting.

  7. I have had the cookies on occasion. I did indeed enjoy them. I don’t really eat cookies much anymore, but if presented some upon check-in at a hotel, I wouldn’t decline them.

  8. Back in the day I would host conferences at a couple of Doubletree properties and they would always give me a giant tin of cookies.

  9. The cookie is one of the things I look forward to whenever I stayed at a DoubleTree. It’s like each property added their own flair to their cookies. Some properties like to make their cookies thin but wide, some like to make them thicker but smaller, things like that. Not too obvious that it would make the cookies substantially different, but it’s there.

  10. Yes! I have had a DoubleTree cookie before, and because my husband is a Hilton Diamond, I always try to ask for double cookies. One time in DoubleTree Melbourne I was given 4 cookies for the both of us.

  11. Yes, I’ve enjoyed Doubletree’s warm cookies before and if a Doubletree property was on my way to anywhere, I would stop by for one every day. Talk about “comfort food”?

  12. Yes, I have had DoubleTree cookies before, and they are delicious. I always tried to ask for more cookies during checkout!

  13. I’m sort of doubling (so to speak) up on comment content, as I shared the DT cookie as my favorite hotel food in a prior day’s entry.
