Alfonso Ribeiro On Hampton By Hilton’s “Real Travel Road Trip Hotline,” Career Highlights & More

Summer is upon us, and what’s the summer season without a planned road trip? And what’s that road trip without squabbles, tough decisions on who chooses the next song, and questions about which hotel to stay at, where to take a rest, which app to navigate with and which shortcuts to take?

Road trips are filled with Real Travel moments — car troubles and endless “are we there yets?” — and to help travelers turn those relatable moments into memories, Hampton By Hilton has teamed up with Alfonso Ribeiro to launch the Real Travel Road Trip Hotline, which offers lighthearted advice on a variety of topics to help road trippers enjoy the journey without getting tripped up along the way.

I had the pleasure of speaking with Alfonso Ribeiro — not only a TV favorite and a Dancing With The Stars winner but also a road-tripping dad of four — about Hampton By Hilton’s Real Travel Road Trip Hotline, travel, hosting America’s Funniest Home Videos, his New York upcoming and more. Our interview, as recorded on June 21, 2019, is embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
