On Monday we wrote about the quiet Hilton Honors redemption price rises. I said that London seemed to have got away without any changes, but that rises were still filtering through the system.
It seems I spoke too soon. Three of the four Hilton Honors hotels in London which had a 30,000 points per night cap have gone up to 40,000 points.
Whilst all of the other Hilton properties in London are unchanged, this change is a blow to anyone who only had a small number of points and was hoping to get a free London hotel stay out of it.
