Hilton Honors Experiences, the auction site where you can bid with your Hilton points, has a new event of interest.

It is offering a two nights stay including breakfast, and high tea for two, at the brand new The Biltmore in Mayfair. The current bidding price is 152,000 points.

Compare this with the 95,000 points per night that you would otherwise pay at The Biltmore and this looks like an attractive deal if bidding closes under 190,000 points. You are effectively getting the two nights for a reduced rate, as well as breakfast and the high tea experience.

It looks like there are no blackout dates for your stay so – given availability – you might be making a huge cash saving too. The offer is valid until 31st October 2020 so you would have plenty of time to redeem.

You can find the bidding page on the Hilton Honors Experiences page here.  Bidding closes on Tuesday 22nd October.
