Hilton’s first promotion for 2014 will wow you if you’re planning on one or more weekend stays. For weekday stayers, however, there are better bonuses on offer elsewhere.
Between February 1 and April 30, members of Hilton’s HHonors program can earn the following bonuses:
There’s a long list of non-participating hotels, including around 325 properties in the U.S.
There’s no limit to the number of bonus points that may be earned.
Registration is required.
Deal or No Deal
Depending on their earning preferences, HHonors members earn at least 10 points per $1 spent at most Hilton brands. So a $100 night would net 1,000 points, plus bonus points or airline miles. At that rate, this promotion’s 1,000 bonus points for a weekday night would amount to earning double base points. Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick, but not the kind of incentive that’s going to spur a spate of mattress runs.
The bonus for a two-night weekend stay, at 7,000 points, is much more attractive. But it does require a stay of at least two consecutive nights.
Overall, this isn’t among the best of the winter hotel promotions. But if your upcoming travel includes multi-night weekend stays, it’s worth a look.
