Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Which Hilton hotels can you book for just 5,000 points per night?

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Every couple of months, IHG Rewards Club generates a wave of publicity – including on Head for Points – by reducing the reward cost of 100 or so properties. They are offered from 5,000 points per night, a discount of up to 95%.  You probably saw the latest list here.

Hilton Honors, however, has over 20 hotels which are 5,000 points per night EVERY NIGHT. Given that some of their hotels now run to 95,000 points per night, these are a great deal if you need to be anywhere near one of them.

This list is especially interesting given that Hilton is often offering a 100% bonus when you purchase Hilton Honors points.  This takes the cost per point down to as little as 0.5 cents.  You can see what the current bonus, if any, is on this page of the Hilton website.

(Remember too that Hilton counts reward nights towards elite status qualification. If you are a few nights short of requalifying, a stay at one of these properties would do the trick very cheaply. I wrote this story a few years ago about how Will achieved Hilton Diamond status for £68!)

Unfortunately, none of 5,000 points per night hotels are in the UK.  In fact, to be honest, it is unlikely that any of them – except potentially the Egyptian resorts – are in places you want to visit.
