The Hilton weekend hotel sale is back, good for all of 2013

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Hilton has launched its ‘Any Weekend, Anywhere’ sale, valid for bookings from 19th November.

What is interesting about this deal is that it is valid for the WHOLE of 2013, although you need to book until January 31st 2013.  Bookings must be prepaid and cannot be cancelled.

The sale is happening worldwide, although the discounts vary.  The home page is here.  For Europe, discounts run to 40%, are valid for Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.  Outside the Americas, there is not a 2-night minimum stay – a one-nighter is OK.

There is an additional perk available to Hilton HHonors members.  If you book for 2 nights or more under this promotion, you will receive double stay credit.  This means that a 2-night stay will count as 4 nights for the purposes of renewing or improving your Hilton HHonors status.

If you go through the link above, there is no need to enter any rate codes.  If you don’t see sale rates, try using rate codes PGAWA6 for room-only rates and PGAWB2 for B&B rates.

As an example … for the middle Saturday of Wimbledon on 29th June, the Hilton Park Lane is £172.  This compares with an Advanced Purchase rate of £217.  A better deal is taking breakfast at the sale price of £184, compared with Advanced Purchase B&B rate of £237.
