    I received an email from Hilton about this offer. The T&Cs are:

    Book between May 19, 2015 and August 23, 2015 and stay on weekends between May 22, 2015 and September 27, 2015 except as otherwise indicated.

    It also says I can get an extra 5% discount for being an HHonors member.

    The offer is also coming up when I put in November dates for Dubai. Any suggestions on the best Hilton hotel in Dubai, for beach/pool and location?

    • Rob says:

      Big budget? Waldorf. Small budget and new hotel? Doubletree. Old but big resort? Hilton Jumeirah. Taking family on a budget? Exec Apartments across road from Hilton Jumeirah. Never stayed at any of these myself.

      • Ant says:

        Thanks Raffles.

        Waldorf is coming within budget and a good deal on “Whatahotel”.

        Will be myself and my mum – business flights on Ethiad mainly with points from the AA credit card and already have 3 nights booked at the new Intercontinental due to open this month from the Into the Sights promotion of last year. So need somewhere for the other 3 nights.

        • Rob says:

          Waldorf is a decent choice then. Traffic on and off the Palm is terrible these days, but if you see the city whilst at the IC you will be OK to remain near the Waldorf for the other days.

          If whatahotel is cheaper than you could try a Best Rate Guarantee claim – not sure if Hilton forces you to make the booking first though. Benefit of a successful claim would be a few quid off, on top of the price match, and points for the stay.

          Few HH benefits at a WA remember (no free breakfast).

          • What's the Point says:

            We stayed at Waldorf last month – excellent hotel. One of the best I have ever stayed in.
            As a Diamond member we got upgraded to a room with Exec lounge access, which included breakfast.

  • Sebastian says:

    I had to be the bloke who made a booking three days ago.

    • John says:

      Me too. Although it doesn’t look like there is a sale rate available for when I booked!

  • David Barron says:

    Slightly off topic – this weekend I have a Hilton stay booked using Points & Money. Is there any way I would actually earn hhonors or airline miles from such a stay? I know Hilton changed policy a while ago so I no longer earn from the cash element but what about bonus points from their double up promotion? Would charging something to room result in additional points or miles being earned?

  • Halo says:

    I checked out a couple of dates in August and Kayak was showing considerably (£200+ per night) cheaper, so be wary.
