Hilton HHonors has launched a 7-day flash sale which runs until next Sunday night.
It covers Europe and the Middle East, with a smattering of Africa, and offers decent discounts on weekend stays until 31st January 2015.
I did a couple of pricing examples. The Waldorf-Astoria Cavalieri in Rome for late November dropped from Euro 240 to Euro 194 per night, or Euro 227 with breakfast included. Hilton HHonors status does not get you free breakfast at a Waldorf-Astoria.
In London, the Hilton at Tower Bridge came in at £153 bed and breakfast per night for the same weekend. Standard Advanced Purchase rates had been pulled so there was no direct comparison available, but you would be paying £189 for a room-only deal on the Best Flexible Rate.
If you have any European or UK weekend breaks lined up before the end of January, it is worth a look at the Hilton site to see if any good deals are available for your destination.
