The Hilton Brussels City is switching to IHG’s Hotel Indigo brand on 4th November.
The hotel is currently undergoing renovations, which is not surprising as Hilton and Hotel Indigo have different brand standards. That said, the hotel looks funkier than your average Hilton so it may not require a complete overhaul.
If you have an existing booking made via Hilton then it will still be honoured, but you will not receive any Hilton Honors points or status benefits after 4th November. You will receive IHG Rewards Club points and status benefits however.
You can find out more on the Hilton Brussels City website here.
Note that ALL Hilton Honors reward availability has been pulled, even though it remains a Hilton-branded hotel for the next two months.
From 4th November it will cost 30,000 IHG Rewards Club points per night. Assuming my personal value of 0.4p per IHG Rewards Club point, this is good value for midweek stays given the cash rates, but poorer value at weekends.
