Hilton partners with Deepika Padukone to shine the spotlight on Hilton’s world‑class offerings and signature hospitality

Hilton has announced a global ambassador partnership with Indian actress, producer, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, Deepika Padukone. The partnership is an extension to Hilton’s first global marketing platform, ‘Hilton. For The Stay,’ in India, spotlighting why it matters where you stay amid continued demand for travel in the region. 

This strategic collaboration marks an important milestone for Hilton, reaffirming the company’s commitment to expand in the dynamic Indian market. Recognized for her inspiring journey in the entertainment industry and beyond, Deepika embodies the spirit of modern India and resonates with the aspirations and ethos of the Indian traveler. Her resilience, innovation, and global outlook, complements Hilton’s mission to offer exceptional experiences, making her the ideal choice to champion Hilton’s global marketing platform. Deepika’s connection with her audience is built on authenticity and a shared pursuit of excellence – qualities that are at the heart of Hilton’s service philosophy.

Led by consumer insights, ‘Hilton. For The Stay’ was launched in July 2022, and illustrates the realities and stresses of traveling, highlighting the importance of ‘The Stay’ as a crucial element that can make or break any trip. Hilton’s hyper-localized approach for the India campaign will start with understanding the unique preferences of local consumers in the coming months. Through market research and Deepika’s synergy with the Indian audience, Hilton aims to uncover relatable tensions in travel which will be interwoven into the campaign, alongside demonstration of how Hilton is here to remove their pain points and extend our signature hospitality, for every stay.

“I’m proud to be partnering with a global brand like Hilton to share the importance of The Stay for Indians worldwide. My generation works extremely hard, and we want to see value in the experiences that we choose to invest in. What I love about Hilton, is that they truly understand the importance of The Stay,” said Deepika Padukone.

Mark Weinstein, Chief Marketing Officer, Hilton, said, “Deepika’s iconic status in India coupled with her ability to effortlessly bridge tradition with modernity makes her the ideal brand ambassador for Hilton.  Through our partnership we look forward to exploring Deepika’s unique, authentic Hilton Stay experiences.  The stories we’ll tell together will inspire travellers from across India to join Hilton Honors and experience their very own Hilton Stays.”

With 25 operating hotels and 17 hotels in the pipeline in India, Hilton has set its sights on the Indian market with a goal of tripling its estate in the coming years. Its global partnership with Deepika and upcoming ‘Hilton. For The Stay’ campaign rollout cements its commitment to India as part of the company’s strategy to increase its brand visibility and strengthen its position in the hospitality market.
