Hilton is currently running a California Road Trip promotion for anyone planning a trip to the US West Coast.

To promote this package, Hilton has given us two ‘Be My Guest’ certificates to give away to one lucky Head for Points reader.

The ‘Be My Guest’ vouchers can be used for a free night at ANY Hilton property worldwide – including all the hotels that participate in the California Road Trip promotion!  You do NOT need reward availability to be available.  You simply book a standard room on a ‘pay at departure’ cash rate and hand over the certificates at checkout.

Enjoy a California Road Trip with Hilton

Guests who book the California Road Trip package at participating Hilton hotels in California will receive one of four collectable key cards which unlock experiences in the area.

Where could you stay?

You can book the California Road Trip offer at one of the participating 42 hotels in the LA area on this Hilton page. Here are two hotels we’d like to highlight:

Hilton Los Angeles Airport

The Hilton LAX is a great place to start or end the California road trip. It’s right next to LAX airport with a free shuttle bus to and from all terminals and has a heated outdoor pool and four whirlpools.

Hilton LAX also has an executive floor with lounge as well as four restaurants.

The hotel’s entrance area and exterior have recently been freshened up to make guests feel welcomed from the moment they arrive at LAX.

Beverly Hilton

The iconic Beverly Hilton is the home to famous award shows like the Golden Globes and a popular location for photo and film shoots.

It is close to Rodeo Drive and sights like the Walk of Fame are a 15 minute drive away.

Many rooms and suites at the Beverly Hilton offer outdoor living spaces and sweeping views of the Hollywood Hills.

  1. Why are the competitions always UK residents only?

  2. Nice competition Rob, will definitely be entering.

    As my linked review says, I used 2x Free night certificates at the Conrad Maldives, great value if Gold/Diamond and certainly happy to extend our last stay there to 12 nights.

  3. KBuffett says:

    I have a Be My Guest Certificate and assumes that it could only be used at Hilton Branded properties (and not Conrad or WA).

    • Correct. The competition (or more accurately, the description) is misleading.
      “Be My Guest” certificates are brand SPECIFIC. Hilton (HILTON) *OR* Conrad only.
      But don’t take my word for it, ask Hilton themselves, or undertake a basic Google search.

      • Anika says:

        I think Hilton changed the rules for BMG vouchers that are handed out to guests who weren’t happy with their stay. You used to be able to exchange them at any hotel but are now restricted to the specific brand you stayed at. As far as we understood the certificates we are giving away will work at any brand. I will talk to our contact and clarify this.

        • Anika says:

          I can now confirm that the BMG certificates we are giving away are valid at ALL BRANDS (so that includes WA, Conrad, Hampton, etc.)

  4. Matt B says:

    This would be perfect for our West Coast road trip honeymoon in a couple of months 🙂

  5. Nice compo, thanks Rob.

  6. Tilly says:

    Fab comp. Thanks Rob. Entered.

  7. Mr(s) Entitled says:

    Stayed at Hilton LAX a number of times and it is good for an airport hotel. The Beverely Hilton however is my favourite brand hotel in LA and surrounds. Lots to do on its doorstep, easy drive to LAX (by LA standards) and Santa Monica. Well worth a visit.

  8. rotundo says:

    Is there a time limit to use the Be My Guest certificate?

    • Rob says 1st October 2018 in the text, so it’s a very short time frame which will mean that many people wouldn’t be able to use the voucher.

      • Anika says:

        31st October refers to the California Road Trip. I’ll check regarding BMG certificate expiry date.

      • Is there no pleasing people? Geez. Here is a genuinely good and relevant competition publicising a promotion that would have – and has been – mentioned already. So win win all round. And yet still we have: ‘why only UK residents’; ‘but it doesn’t fit in with MY plans” etc etc. Get a life you guys! Unbelievable.

    • Anika says:

      The BMG certificates are valid for one year from the date of issue.

  9. PT – doesn’t those dates just refer to the California Summer Road Trip offer?

  10. Peter K says:

    Thanks for the competition Rob.

  11. clarence says:

    sorry for living in the stone age but I don’t use twitter facebook or instagram. is there any way round this.
