    I’m trying desperately hard to book a room using this app, but end up with a blank screen after searching. I’m guessing it has issues with iOS7. Shame there’s no Android version.

      What about andriod?

      Same here. I just downloaded the app – looks good, knows all about my upcoming stays, history etc. but displays a blank screen with the search results (iPhone 4s, iOS 7).

    But you aren’t meant to transfer 10,000 Hilton points to 1,000 Avios! You are meant to use them for Hilton stays, and I’d value 10,000 Hilton points at £30 (for ‘all points’ redemptions) or £50 (for ‘cash and points’ redemptions).
