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 support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

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:

    Bali Airport could work well for a few days on arrival, get the sightseeing out of the way then move to hotel of choice to relax thereafter.ger

  • Graeme says:

    I’ll always be gutted that I didn’t take advantage of the Hilton Salalah deal. Such a good price.

    • BJ says:

      We did 5 nights at Newport for 20k. Didn’t know what to expect but it was a great stay, lots to keep us interested in the area.

    • The Streets says:

      Still up there with my most memorable hotel redemptions. It topped off a great trip to Oman with its amazing white sandy beach and turquoise blue waters on the hotel doorstep… and even bumped into another hfp reader!

    • James says:

      Me too. Thoroughly gutted.

  • Sam G says:

    I’ve stayed at Bali airport once from a late night arrival before transferring to my more expensive hotel, something we did from time to time on a trip rather than pay for a night in a decent we weren’t really using. Nice enough hotel, wouldn’t want to spend my holiday there though!

    I also did the old Istanbul airport Hilton for 5k, great use of points

  • Sandgrounder says:

    I did 5 nights in Krakow in a brand new Hampton for 20k per room, 4 nights in Minsk for 20k (that was when the visa waiver was 5 days max). Great deals for $100.

  • bill says:

    i struggle to redeem points when hilton bumps up the rate for rooms including a couple of kids

    • The Savage Squirrel says:

      1) Booking connecting rooms on standard points rate is usually better than a single premium-rate family room
      2) Booking a standard rate room and asking the hotel very nicely and/or being willing to pay a small cash surcharge will get you a long way….

  • ankomonkey says:

    I did a week at one of the Hiltons in Hurghada (now deflagged) for 30k HH points (also using the 5th night free offer). It made up for my failure to ever find a use for IHG Pointsbreak.

  • James says:

    The loss of the Red Sea ones has hurt me 🙁
    They did used to have too many in all fairness (I think 4 in Sharm and 2/3 in Hurghada).

    They are, in Sharm, down to just 1 now and that is a long slog from the old town, the marina (for scuba) and still a pricey return taxi ride from Naama bay.
    Its also never 5,000 points unlike the others could be (with Waterfalls (latest to close) being almost permanently available at 5k but also inundated with paying all-inclusive guests. It wasn’t the same standard as most other Hiltons but is a huge loss to the lower-end portfolio.

  • Steve says:

    The Bali airport hotel is an excellent hotel with a good restaurant, decent size outdoor pool, good gym and the airport is close enough to walk even though the complimentary shuttle bus is there when you need it.

    If you really wanted to use your points economically and save money then you could stay there the whole time you’re in Bali and just get taxis or even hire a car to go the beaches and tourist attractions, which aren’t that far away, and I’m sure you’d have a great time.

    Obviously, when most people think of Bali, they imagine a hotel on the beach, which this is not, so for most it will just be a night or two after arriving or before departure and for that it is absolutely perfect.
