Hilton’s luxury brands offering ‘3rd night free’ for hotel stays in Europe

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

Hilton has extended its ‘3 for 2’ offer for its most luxurious hotels in Europe.  Even better, this can be combined with the extra benefits that come via Hilton’s Impressario scheme for luxury travel agents.

The participating hotels are:

  • Waldorf Astoria Versailles
  • Rome Cavalieri, a Waldorf Astoria hotel
  • Waldorf Astoria Berlin
  • Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh, The Caledonian
  • The Biltmore Mayfair
  • Conrad Dublin
  • Conrad London St James
  • Conrad Algarve (not valid July and August, hotel offers ‘4-4-3 and not ‘3-4-2’), pictured below

A ‘four for three’ offer in Turkey and Middle East

There is a similar but less generous ‘four for three’ deal at these hotels in Turkey and the Middle East:

  • Waldorf Astoria Dubai IFC
  • Waldorf Astoria Dubai Palm Jumeirah
  • Waldorf Astoria Jeddah (‘five nights for four’)
  • Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah, pictured below
  • Habtoor Palace Dubai
  • Susona Bodrum
  • Conrad Abu Dhabi Etihad Towers
  • Conrad Cairo
  • Conrad Dubai
  • Conrad Istanbul Bosphorus
  • Conrad Makkah

The offers are valid for stays booked and completed by 30th December 2021, subject to availability.

You CANNOT book this offer via the Hilton website – you need to use a ‘preferred partner’ travel agent.  If you book via our hotel booking partner Emyr Thomas, you will also receive additional Hilton Impressario benefits:

  • Upgrade on arrival, subject to availability
  • Complimentary breakfast for two daily for duration of the stay
  • $100 / €85 equivalent food & beverage credit
  • Early check-in / late check-out, subject to availability
  • double Hilton Honors points

You can contact Emyr via the form on this page of Head for Points.  You pay the same rate as the Best Flexible Rate shown on, adjusted for ‘3 for 2’ or ‘4 for 3’.

    Shame it’s 5 for 4 in the Algarve.

  • BJ says:

    Good offer but largely only of relevance if Europe allows UK travellers back.

    • Track says:

      and the UK allows UK residents back without paying 1750+…

    • TripRep says:

      Or if Nippy Sweetie allows you North of the border 🤣

      • paul says:

        “Nippy Sweetie” seems to be doing a far better job than her counterpart with the mop head down south.

        • Sandgrounder says:

          It’s easier though, all she’s got to do is say “Th’ sassenach ur nae follaein th’ rules” and everyone from Thurso to Dumfries is wearing a mask the next day to show us up.

  • Josh says:

    I was interested in the Conrad Istanbul. But if you have diamond there is really no big benefit TheSupposedly “free night “is paid for in largeby the difference between the flex rate and the cheaper rates available.
    And you need to commit to four days stay

      Nice hotel, had an exec twin there Nov 2019

      Breakfast top notch and exec lounge pretty decent.

    • Cinimo says:

      Stayed there early September last year, booked by Emyr with a night free etc. They were very stingy with the upgrade despite gold + impresario booking. They said there was no availability in the next category up, but there was in 2 categories up. Initially they said sorry we can’t upgrade 2 categories for free, but we have “a great offer” just pay about 60% extra compared to your booking for the better view. After speaking to manager we’ll upgrade you, but only to the worst room 2 categories up. We had a look – it stank of smoke, no thank you. By that time I was fed up with arguing and just took the original room.

        Interesting that Emyr told me Istanbul was not part of Impressario last July. Maybe it changed?

  • Rh says:

    I really rate the Conrad Algarve. Nice for kids and good gym and spa and food and rooms, etc.
