Hilton Brussels City becomes a Hotel Indigo on 4th November

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.

The Hotel Indigo Brussels City page on the IHG site is 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.

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.

    O/T, and maybe a daft question.
    Am flying BA Belfast to Tel Aviv via Heathrow at the end of the month, I haven’t been to Israel for almost 20 years, but seem to recall for security reasons having to re-check my luggage at LHR. Bit of a foggy memory, but can anyone confirm I can indeed check my hold luggage all the way through from Belfast?
    Thank you

      Sorry, am flying DUBLIN to Tel Aviv, but the question remains the same.
      Thanks again…

      No problem checking through. If your second flight is El Al, they will ask you some questions at their second security check at the gate.

  2. O/T: Can I refer from Amex Preferred Rewards Gold Charge Card to BAPP and if so what would be the reward earnt?
