Hilton HHonors (Hilton, Conrad, Hampton)

Hilton HHonors is the loyalty scheme for Hilton, Hampton, Waldorf-Astoria and Conrad hotels amongst others. You earn points which can be used for free nights or transferred into frequent flyer miles including Avios points.

I published an extensive two-part review of Hilton HHonors which can be found here and here. The latest promotions can be found on our 'Hotel Promos' page.

Hampton by Hilton Corby no longer 5,000 points per night – a loophole closed!

Last week, Hilton HHonors published a list of hotel reward category changes on its website.  The list is here.  A few of these impact the UK so they are worth mentioning. The most annoying one is that Hampton by Hilton Corby, photo below, has moved from […]

Use Hilton points for a private concert by Jess Glynne in London

Hilton @Play is the Hilton HHonors equivalent of Starwood’s SPG Moments scheme, allowing you to redeem your points for ‘once in a lifetime’ experiences rather than more hotel stays! Hilton@Play launched earlier this year and, to be honest, has been underwhelming.  The difference between @Play […]

TRIPLE or QUADRUPLE Avios points with Hilton stays this Autumn

Bits: 75% bonus for buying Hilton points, pilot and crew rest areas of a 777, Flybe sale

News in brief: Up to 75% bonus when you buy Hilton HHonors points This offer is poorer than the 100% and 80% bonuses which Hilton HHonors has offered in recent months so I am not focussing on it strongly. The full bonus is not even […]

Hilton rolls out its low cost ‘day rooms’ to more properties

My review of Hilton London Syon Park – the most luxurious Hilton in the world?

Last chance to buy IHG, Hilton and Hyatt points at a discount
