A new Hampton by Hilton hotel opened at Edinburgh Airport this week.

The 240 room property is not, technically, attached to the airport but is apparently a very short walk – the official distance is 0.1 miles!  I am generally positive about Hampton by Hilton properties which tend to have attractive modern designs and come with free breakfast.

You can find out more on the hotel website here.  Rooms in January are around £70 or around 20,000 Hilton Honors points.

A Moxy (Marriott’s budget brand) hotel is also scheduled to open early in 2019.

How to earn Hilton Honors points via UK credit cards

As a reminder, there are various ways of earning Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards.  Many cards also have generous sign-up bonuses!

Do you know that holders of The Platinum Card from American Express receive FREE Hilton Honors Gold status for as long as they hold the card?  It also comes with Marriott Bonvoy Gold, Radisson Rewards Gold, Shangri-La Golden Circle Jade and Melia Rewards Gold status.  We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here.
