The Hilton "Travel Should Take You Places" ads were developed by Young & Rubicam Brands to launch the brand's 2006 re-ignition campaign that followed its reuniting with Hilton International. The ads featured up-and-coming musicians and reinforced the Hilton brand philosophy that travel should be "more than just A to B."

The Hilton Harmony Tour program, developed with Cohn & Wolfe Los Angeles, supported music education for hundreds of youths across N. America. For each artist who signed a six-foot baby grand piano that traveled more than 10,000 miles across N. America, Hilton donated $1,000 to music education. At the close of the campaign, the Hilton Harmony Piano featured more than 110 celebrity signatures, resulting in more than $110,000 for music education programs.

"We're honored to once again be recognized for the Travel Should Take You Places campaign and to garner kudos for the Hilton Harmony Tour. These awards are a testament to the way these campaigns have connected with travelers and as a result, increased business," said Jeff Diskin, senior vice president - brand management.

"The campaign is designed to promote the transformative nature of travel and Hilton's role in helping shape our guests' journeys, allowing them to be at their best while they stay with us."
