Hilton launches seven day ‘flash sale’ for weekend stays until 3rd July

Hilton has launched a seven day ‘flash sale’ which runs until midnight on Sunday.

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 30%, except for Hampton by Hilton hotels where the maximum discount is 15%.

The rates are valid for weekend stays until 3rd July.  You will also find that some hotels have loaded these rates for weekday stays.

As usual with Hilton sales, you need to take the ‘30% 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, all prices quoted include the extra discount for being an Hilton HHonors member:

Hilton Venice, 27-29 May (photo above)

€258 Flash Sale vs €332 Best Available Rate (no Advanced Purchase option shown)

The Trafalgar, London, 27-29 May

£213 Flash Sale vs £256 Best Available Rate (no Advanced Purchase option shown)

Waldorf-Astoria Dubai, 26-28 May

Dh 715 Flash Sale vs Dh 990 Advanced Purchase vs Dh 1,100 Best Available – you save Dh 275 per night + 20% tax via this sale

If you have any weekends away planned between now and 3rd July, you should take a look at these offers to see if there is anything of interest.  The ‘flash sale’ website is here.
