As some guests may have noticed, the Hampton Inn & Suites Chicago Downtown is home to a loveable, large size bear that resides in the lobby. No, you’re not seeing things. This over-sized teddy-bear is the Hampton’s very own traveling mascot and his name is Hank the Tank!

Since his adoption to the Hampton Inn & Suites Chicago Downtown Family, Hank has been hanging out with guests, taking pictures, sharing smiles and hugs and even been shopping on Magnificent Mile. One guest even dared to steal Hank away to his room exclusively-causing quite any uproar on Hank’s whereabouts. Thankfully the staff here at the Hampton was able to rescue Hank and with just that change of scenery from the lobby, Hank longed to see new things and travel to Hampton hotels all around the U.S. He details his travels via facebook, twitter and with pictures and postcards. Ever seen the movie “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants?” Well Hank is to Hampton what a pair of jeans were to a few girlfriends. The friendly spirit of camaraderie and hospitality!

Nevertheless Hank has had some amazing opportunities to visit some awesome Hampton hotels, namely the Hampton Inn & Suites Carson City, Nevada, and the Hampton Inn Raleigh-Capital Blvd. North.  Currently, Hank is traveling to Hampton Inn Gretna/Altavista/Chatham.
