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.

Hilton Honors still has a handful of hotels which are 5,000 points per night EVERY NIGHT. Given that some of their hotels now run to 150,000 points per night (the new rate for Waldorf Astoria Maldives on peak days), these are a great deal if you need to be anywhere near one of them.

This list is especially interesting given that Hilton is offering a 100% bonus when you purchase Hilton Honors points.  This takes the cost per point down to as little as 0.5 cents.  The current bonus ends on 8th July – you can buy on this page of the Hilton website.

Remember 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 of Tesco Clubcard vouchers.

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 are in places you want to visit. 

Bali Airport is possibly the one you are most likely to come across although you could also have a very cheap tour of Turkey.  The 10,000 points list of Hilton Honors redemptions, which is here, is a bit more user friendly.

All of this data comes from Hilton’s ‘Points Explorer’ tool here.  Set the slider to 5,000 points.

Here’s the list:

    Why are there so many Hiltons in Turkey? Did they buy a Turkish chain or are there just loads of incentives for them to build hotels there? Was it just something to do with when Turkey’s tourist industry really opened up that it was an opportune moment for Hilton to get in there? Are they all owned by a Turkish company under a Hitlon licence? Who knows?
