The massive Hilton HHonors devaluation

A couple of people have emailed me to ask when I will be writing about the massive Hilton HHonors devaluation.

The answer, unfortunately, is not until the end of next week.  I am pretty much without internet access until the weekend, and then the blog will be down Monday and Tuesday next week as we move to the new server and new look.  However, as the new redemption rates do not kick in until March 28th there is no panic!

In truth, it is not necessarily as bad as has been portrayed.  It IS certainly bad for London, New York and the inspirational resort properties like Maldives and Koh Samui, some of which go up over 100%!  In Europe, though, it is more of a mixed bag.  I want some time next week to look at it properly before writing it up.

  1. I would recommend the Nolitan Hotel – we stayed there in December for a week. Excellent hotel and a great location. If you can afford it, the corner rooms (high floors) offer fantastic views.

  2. Aren’t points and cash always a better value than points alone? They have been in my experience.

    Note that I’m taking into account the points forfeited from a full cash booking but also the points earned by paying the cash bit with a credit card.
