MCLEAN, VA—Hampton Hotels, Hilton Worldwide's brand of more than 1,900 Hampton Inn, Hampton Inn & Suites and Hampton by Hilton hotels, has launched its new “Hamptonality Moments College Football Program,” which includes a partnership with former NFL player and Heisman Winner Tony Dorsett and sports blog community SB Nation.
As part of this new program, Hampton is sending select bloggers from SB Nation to the following six college towns to experience a football weekend with itineraries developed by local experts and football fans: Ann Arbor, MI; Columbia, SC; Columbus, OH; Pittsburgh, PA; Stanford, CA; and Tuscaloosa, AL.
In addition, football fans can participate in the conversation on social media sites Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Instagram for the chance to win free hotel stays or game tickets.
