Hats Off to Hilton

Hilton Hotels Corp. considers everybody a winner. That’s what the press release said, and I have to admit I’m very happy about their attitude. The press release went on to state that all US athletes who competed in Torino would be awarded a free weekend stay at any participating Hilton hotel in the 48 contiguous states.

And here’s the really great part. The invitation is extended to all athletes. In fact the press release specifically stated that Hilton Hotels Corp. considers all Olympic and Paralympic athletes winners.

That’s right, they actually mentioned the p-word!

OK, maybe I get excited about little things, but I think inclusion is great. I’m thrilled that Hilton went that extra mile to include one nine-letter word that made all the difference in the world — Paralympic.

Way to go Hilton!
