Hilton launched its Ultimate Weekender Sweepstakes for Hilton HHonors members, encouraging those members to “Be a Weekender” in 2014 by offering the chance to win a weekend trip every week throughout the year.

Every Monday, a new giveaway destination will be revealed. Members of Hilton HHonors are invited to enter once a day to win that week’s getaway at

Starting in February, members can earn additional daily entries for each giveaway by submitting photos or travel tips related to that particular week’s getaway destination. And lest you forget how much social media plays a role in travel… you'll also be entered into the promotion via Twitter. All entries from the year will go into a draw to select a grand prize winner. Any stays by a member in 2014 will also count as entries toward the grand prize of 12 weekend getaways.

“We know that our members work hard during the week and we want to help ensure that they are taking advantage of their time-off on the weekends,” said Jeff Diskin, executive vice president, Hilton Worldwide, in a statement. “The Ultimate Weekender Sweepstakes provides our members with the opportunity to get away every weekend in 2014, whether it’s a shopping on The Magnificent Mile in Chicago, hitting the beach with friends in Miami or a romantic getaway with your significant other to Hawaii. With Hilton Worldwide, there is a destination for everyone.”

Hilton put New York up as the first sweepstakes, and other destinations including San Diego, Orlando and Hawaii are on the agenda. Check out the terms and conditions for Hilton Worldwide’s Ultimate Weekender Sweepstakes and if you're not already, sign up to become a Hilton HHonors member.
