Proof that the Conrad / Waldorf-Astoria bonuses are still paying out

Back in January, I wrote that three special Hilton HHonors bonus promotions for its luxury Conrad and Waldorf-Astoria brands still appeared to be working.

As I found out when I was in Ras Al Khaimah at the Waldorf-Astoria last week (photo below), this is definitely still correct.

Take a look at the screenshot below.  You will see bonus point entries for 3,000 points (in the separate box at the top), 4,000 points and 5,000 points.


As I found out in New York in 2014, you will receive these bonus points even on reward stays.

The first offer is for 2,000 bonus Hilton HHonors points for every NIGHT at a Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria hotel.

The registration page is here.

That accounts for the 4,000 points entry on my statement.

The second offer is for bonus points on your next three stays at Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria hotels.

Your first stay will trigger 2,000 bonus points, your second 3,000 and your third 5,000.

The registration page for this offer is here.

This accounts for the 3,000 point entry on my statement.

The third offer is for 5,000 points on your next stay of two nights or more at a Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria hotel.

The link to register is here.

This accounts for the 5,000 point entry on my statement.

In the last few days, Hilton has updated the pages above for the first and last offers to confirm that they will continue to be available until 30th April 2016.  Make sure you register for all three if there is a chance for you to stay at a Conrad or Waldorf-Astoria in the next 6-7 weeks.

    Thanks you for that.

    I have sent an ingenuous email to the hotel enquiring how to book the Compliments of Conrad and Conrad Spa Experience for myself and my companion, as it is my first time and I don’t know how to do that with an online booking.

    I’ll wrap up this conversation now unless I get a result worth reporting.

    • Alan says:

      Good plan, fingers-crossed for a result!

      • Matt says:

        Ha !

        A very polite email explaining that they cannot provide 50 Euro a day of hotel money to people who book at the flash sale rate :-). Fair enough.

        Ah well.

    Have 2 stays booked at the conrad Bangkok, both on cash & points (3 nights).this will net me 16k points, reimbursing the points for a night (2k×3 +5k +2k +3k) and even more if the 5k is per stay and not once 🙂
    Thanks Raffles!

      Conrad Bangkok is my most favourite in Bangkok. Huge swimming pool and the lounge is decent. Staff are excellent and the bar downstairs is great too.
