The next time you go to one of Hilton’s hotels, you may find a new clock radio that features a jack to connect your Apple iPod or other MP3 player. The hotel chain has just launched its
Timing Is Everything
sweepstakes to celebrate.
The Hilton Family Alarm Clocks will be taking their place by the bedstands of rooms at Hilton, Doubletree, Embassy Suites Hotels, Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Grand Vacations Club and Homewood Suites by Hilton hotels this spring. The clocks feature an “MP3 jack” that accommodates your iPod or another MP3 player so you can listen to your own favorite music in the room without having to rely on earbuds or portable speaker systems.
The sweepstakes will award iTunes gift certificates, iPod minis, two night stays and Hilton Family Alarm Clocks to hundreds of winners — and one grand prize winner gets the whole package, too. The sweepstakes runs through July 7, 2005. Hilton also lets users download a “Virtual Clock” (for Mac OS X or Windows) so you can get a taste of what the clock is like without having to book a stay.
