Hilton Betters Expectations with Anna Kendrick

Hilton has created a push starring television’s Anna Kendrick which promotes peace of mind through Honor points, perks, and price.

Hilton has chosen Anna Kendrick as the face of its newly launched marketing campaign. After speaking to thousands worldwide, the group learned that many travellers have been conditioned to expect less and approach planning with scepticism. Relying on these useful consumer insights, the push uses humour to tackle said travel frustrations.

Themed Expect Better, its main goals are flexibility, greater perks, and on-property experiences for guests. These aims come with the assurance of best price, which is made possible via the Hilton Price Match Guarantee. The offering is accessible to those who book a stay via the Hilton Honors app, main website, and all other official channels.
