It is offering special deals at 300 hotels across Europe (including the UK), Middle East and Africa, but only at weekends. Many rooms are discounted by 33%.
The rates are valid for weekend stays until January 31st. You will find that some hotels have also loaded these rates for weekday stays.
As usual with Hilton sales, you need to take the ‘33% discount’ with a pinch of salt. This is based on the discount from ‘Best Available Rate’ for the same day. However, these sale rates require pre-payment and are non-refundable. A ‘Best Available Rate’ room is cancellable without charge.
There are some deals out there. I picked a couple at random:
Waldorf-Astoria Rome Cavalieri, 6-8 November, Rome View room (photo above)
€343 Flash Sale vs €379 Advanced Purchase vs €429 Best Available – you save €36 per night via this sale
The Trafalgar, London, 6-8 November
£173 Flash Sale vs £259 Best Available (no Advanced Purchase option shown)
Waldorf-Astoria Dubai, 6-8 November
Dh 1,875 Flash Sale vs Dh 2,125 Advanced Purchase vs Dh 2,500 Best Available – you save Dh 250 per night via this sale
If you have any weekends away planned between now and the end of January, you should take a look at these offers to see if there is anything of interest. The ‘flash sale’ website is here.
