When Jacob and Abbie Bennett had to cancel their 30-day European honeymoon this summer, they decided to book a staycation in their home city of Washington, D.C., instead. It turned out to be an unforgettable “trip.”
Jacob, a kindergarten teacher, caught the flu during his first honeymoon in Hawaii, so the trip was supposed to be a do-over. Obviously, the COVID-19 pandemic thwarted those plans.
“My wife and I have been strict about social distancing and staying home during this pandemic – it’s been tough,” he told Hilton in a statement.
The couple chose to stay at the Conrad Washington D.C. When the hotel learned about their story, it decided to go the extra mile to bring Europe to them.
It reached out to luxury Hilton hotels around Europe including the Waldorf Astoria Berlin, Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam, Waldorf Astoria Versailles – Trianon Palaceto and Conrad London St. James.
The Conrad delivered personalized notes, photos and videos for the couple to enjoy throughout their stay and sent themed canapés and cocktails to them to represent each city.
