Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Which Hilton hotels can you book for just 10,000 points per night?

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

Earlier this week I took a look at hotels which are just 5,000 Hilton Honors points per night.  These are incredibly cheap redemptions – you could stay for 20 nights for the cost of just one night at the Hilton Park Lane in London – although in the main they are not in places which you would want to visit.

In truth, only a handful of these hotels are likely to be anywhere near your tourist radar.  A little more practical is the list of Category 2 Hilton Honors hotels which cost 10,000 points per night.

This list is especially interesting given that Hilton is currently offering a 100% bonus when you purchase Hilton Honors points.  This takes the cost per point down to as little as 0.5 cents, so $50 for any hotel on this list. The current bonus ends on 8th July – you can buy on this page of the Hilton website.

Hilton 10,000 points per night hotels

Hilton Honors has 65 hotels which are 10,000 points per night EVERY NIGHT.

This is substantially fewer than the 130 hotels on the list when we last ran this exercise a few years ago.  The losses are almost all in Turkey and China, with Istanbul alone losing nine hotels which were 10,000 points.  Mexico remains the sweet spot.

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.

The Hampton in Krakow, click here, is probably your best European option, especially as Hampton hotels offer free breakfast as well.  We will see if we can take a look at this hotel later in the year.

All of this data comes from Hilton’s ‘Points Explorer’ tool here.  Set the slider to 10,000 points and then ignore all the hotels which don’t have a ‘maximum’ price of 10,000 points.

    What a sad state these lists are in.

  • jontJ says:

    Rob has explained why points inflation is to be expected, but it seems to have hit the bottom end of the Hilton redemption market much more than the top, with hotels going up 100%,200%,300% in the past few years
