History

The Doubletree Cookie

Doubletree Hotels, Suites, Resorts and Clubs present a chocolate chip cookie to each guest at check-in. Synonymous with Doubletree hospitality, the cookie has been used to differentiate the Doubletree hotel brand from its competition.
Doubletree gives out approximately 29,000 chocolate chip cookies each day, and a total of over 125,000,000. Each cookie weighs a 2½ ounces and has an average of 20 chocolate chips. The cookies are currently manufactured by The Christie Cookie company. In June 2002, Doubletree gave its 100,000,000th cookie.
