MCLEAN, Va. - Hilton Hotels & Resorts, a leader in family travel around the world, today launches Hilton Mom Voyage, www.HiltonMomVoyage.com, a dynamic family travel site featuring 14 moms and one dad who will engage with parents nationwide as they share insider travel content based on their own vacation experiences from the white sand beaches of Los Cabos and Puerto Vallarta to the slopes of Whistler. The flagship brand of Hilton Worldwide conducted a nationwide search for family bloggers in 2012 while creating Hilton Mom Voyage as a key extension of its focus on both family travel and its Hilton Resorts collection of more than 75 resorts in the world's most desirable locations.

"Through sharing meaningful family travel insights and stories that are as helpful to parents as they are enjoyable to read, Hilton Mom Voyage is a one-stop source for planning and taking memorable family trips in destinations kids will love," said Bonnie Campagnuolo, senior director - global brand marketing, Hilton Hotels & Resorts. "Regardless of working status, moms are most often planning and booking their family's travels, and since they increasingly seek advice within their personal networks, we hope Hilton Mom Voyage will become part of that mix."

Hilton Mom Voyage panelists share their authentic family travel experiences; tips supporting themes such as what to do on rainy beach days or how to spend extra time at the airport; and their favorite kid-friendly experiences in their hometowns. Visitors can participate in the family travel conversation by commenting on posts and seeking travel advice of the panel and Hilton Hotels & Resorts. The 15 bloggers not only hail from all corners of the United States, but they represent a diverse array of moms and dads - ranging from single, married or remarried, and covering a broad work spectrum from a stay-at-home mom, master's degree student and volunteer to professions such as writer, personal coach, business owner and assistant school principal - to ensure useful content reaches parents of all positions.

The Hilton Mom Voyage panel includes:

During the one-year program, each panelist will embark on a five-night, all-expenses-paid family vacation to a Hilton Hotels & Resorts property that suits the family's travel style, in addition to receiving other benefits that include Hilton HHonors Diamond Elite status, five Be My Guest certificates for single-night stays wherever they wish, and more. The bloggers, who were selected in October 2012 following a nationwide search, began their first wave of family vacations in December 2012 to properties including Hilton London Tower Bridge (U.K.) and Hilton Puerto Vallarta Resort (Mexico), which opened in October 2012 as the Hilton Hotels & Resorts brand's first all-inclusive resort in Mexico. Hilton Mom Voyage panelists have at least one child between the ages of 4 and 12, are legal U.S. residents, have a passion for traveling with their families, and possess strong writing skills and storytelling ability.
