The Curtis Hotel, at 1405 Curtis Street, has joined up with Doubletree Hotels, and is celebrating the new affiliation with free milk and chocolate chip cookies -- a Doubletree trademark -- given to anyone who stops by the hotel between 3 and 5 p.m. today.
The hotel already given handed out 600 cookies at a giveaway from 7 to 9 a.m. this morning, and it anticipates chipping out for many more than that this afternoon.
In addition to the cookies, the Curtis is gaining the benefit of being part of a prestigious chain. "Everything is basically staying the same," spokeswoman Julie Dunn says of the hotel and its popular restaurant, the Corner Office, "but they'll be able to take advantage of the Hilton's systems."
About those cookies: "For 20 years," reads the Doubletree website page, "Doubletree Hotels have built a reputation on a unique treat that keeps leisure and business travelers coming back for more: its legendary chocolate chip cookie presented to each guest at check-in. Our signature Doubletree chocolate cookies are baked fresh daily providing a warm welcome and refreshing hospitality for travelers around the world."
To date, more than 200,000,000 cookies have been handed out; expect what's now known as the Curtis, a Doubletree Hotel to up the ante today.
