Some Winter Sale inspiration
After a busy Christmas and New Year, it could be a good time to take a break and make the most of the Hilton Winter Sale.
There are a couple of newly opened Hilton hotels in the Middle East that could provide some welcome winter sun.
Closer to home, Canopy by Hilton Paris Trocadero is just a Eurostar away and is getting good reviews. The rooftop bar and some of the suites have views over the Eiffel Tower, perfect for a romantic, if slightly clichéd, Valentine’s break.
However, if staying on British soil seems a better idea, Fellows House Cambridge, which we reviewed in 2021 here, is also included in the Hilton Winter Sale, as is Canopy by Hilton London City which Rhys reviewed this time last year.
The Hilton Winter Sale is now live and offers savings across a range of hotels in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. There are a few terms and conditions to note before you book:
- you must book by 31st January 2023
- you must stay between 21st December 2022 and 24th April 2023
- full prepayment is required and rooms are not refundable
- sale rates are available for weekend stays at participating hotels
You will save 20% off the standard Best Flexible Rate. The discount is lower if you are not a Hilton Honors member.
