A quick note for Edinburgh visitors that the Hilton Edinburgh Grosvenor is leaving the chain tomorrow.
It isn’t clear which brand, if any, it will be adopting.
If you have any stays booked here you may wish to change them, especially if you were expecting elite status benefits or points earning. There are various other options in Edinburgh city centre, including the Waldorf Astoria The Caledonian (where I spent a couple of nights recently, although I didn’t review it), Hilton Edinburgh Carlton, DoubleTree Edinburgh City Centre and Hampton Edinburgh West End.
The hotel website is here – for another 24 hours – if you want to find out more.
How to earn Hilton Honors points from UK credit cards (January 2021)
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 MeliaRewards Gold status. We reviewed American Express Platinum in detail here and you can apply here.
Did you know that the Virgin Atlantic credit cards are a great way of earning Hilton Honors points? Two Virgin Points can be converted in three Hilton Honors points. You can apply here.
You can also earn Hilton Honors points indirectly via American Express Gold, the American Express Rewards Credit Card and – for small business owners – American Express Business Gold and Business Platinum.
