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.

How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards

How to earn Hilton Honors points and status from UK credit cards (August 2022)

    The second offer states it was valid until 31/12/15 but still let me register, hope they extend the date of the first offer as have an existing award booking in early May.

  • Yuff says:

    Pretty sure I’m registered, for all the offers, but will double check as it could be an extra 44k points, on a 10 night reward stay, and 2 credit card voucher nights, at Rangali at the beginning of April 🙂

  • Sammy says:

    This is only for paid stays I assume?

    • Peter K says:

      In the review it says it also works for reward stays and has a link to a past article about it.

      • Sammy says:

        Any idea if this would work on reservations that have been booked already? The travel dates aren’t for another 3 weeks so technically I can cancel and rebook though I don’t like taking chanced with award availability not going back into inventory.

        • Rich says:

          Worked for me. I signed up to the promotion after I had booked the WA Amsterdam. Got the points. (I made sure to charge something to the room, just to be sure.)

          • Sammy says:

            Thanx for that.
            Though I’m not sure why charging to the room would make a difference. It doesn’t seem that this promotion has anything to do with a HH cc. And room charges don’t appear on your HH account, if I’m correct.

          • Nick says:

            Just charge a drink or something to the room and it’ll work. I’ve done it.

          • Rob says:

            Charging to the room triggers a small number of HH points on a reward night and that often ‘encourages’ bonuses to post alongside.

        • Rob says:

          Yes, no problem.

  • Matt says:

    OT: Just discovered that my Hilton Honours Visa seems to give me free access to my Experian Credit Score.

    Is this a Barclaycard thing?

    Quite pleased because Experian is the most painful one to monitor without charge.

    • Rich says:

      Talking of the Hilton Visa, does anyone know how/ when the 2500 bonus points for your first 4 bookings credit? I had 2 stays in February. No sign of the points on the credit card statement for that month or the following.

      • Andrew (@andrewseftel) says:

        I’ve always found the 2.5k points to be quite hit and miss. They credit as separate lines in your HHonors statement.

        • Fenny says:

          I did 4 stays in 2 weeks when I got my HH card. Three lots of 2500 points posted relatively quickly (at the same time as the ordinary points),but the 4th didn’t. So I emailed them and they credited the points. Some months later, I stayed again and the 4th lot of 2500 points posted.

    • Andrew (@andrewseftel) says:

      It’s a Barclaycard thing.

    • mark2 says:

      Yes, but you just get the number with no explanation.

    • Oleg says:

      Any reason for monitoring Experian, especially in addition to ClearScore and Noddle?

  • Matt says:


    Why the Doubletree Tag? Have I missed something?


  • Bigglesgirl says:

    Thanks Raffles. Got a 3 night reward stay in the Waldorf in Amsterdam coming up so this will be handy. Somebody mentioned validity in one of the posts above – when I registered it said the offer was valid out to end April 2016.

  • Dean says:

    OT – I cancelled my gold card in January, I’ve got the BA premium card already, what is the best card I should get next for another sign up bonus, I can’t sign up for gold again for another 3 months!

  • Maria Jauregui says:

    The links don’t seem to work for me 🙁
