What are the best hotel promos for April 2024?

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Welcome to our regular round-up of the best hotel promotions currently running.

All of the information in this article can also be found on our ‘Hotel Offers’ page which contains details of all of the current offers, together with links to our major articles on each hotel scheme.  However, a positive response from readers – especially our 19,000 email subscribers – means we run this monthly article as a handy summary.

We’ve seen a bounce back in the number of offers from the winter low BUT ‘big brand’ American Express cashback deals are still noticeably absent.

Are these now over? American Express was heavily subsidising them, and as they have all stopped (Hilton, Marriott, IHG and Hyatt ran them multiple times) it is possible that Amex has turned off the tap. The only offers we have are from second tier chains.

  • Get £100 back when you spend £500 with Preferred Hotels (expires 30th June)

Where should you credit your stays for April 2024?

Remember that, irrespective of the offers below, there is never a single ‘best’ offer.

Some offers require multiple stays to maximise the bonus, which you might not do. Some require stays to be a minimum number of nights before a bonus is earned.

You need to factor in any elite status you have, which will earn you additional status bonuses.

More importantly, you need to be able to use the points. There is no value in earning a large bonus in a scheme where you will never go on to earn enough points to get a free night.

Hilton Honors current offers

Hilton (Hampton, Conrad, Waldorf-Astoria etc)

Hilton has a promotion called ‘Points Plus’.

You can register here.  Our full article is here. It runs until 1st May.

You will earn 2,000 bonus points on all stays, plus an additional 500 boints if you select a Digital Key in the Hilton app.

You need to register in advance of your first stay during the period via the Hilton website here.  Existing bookings count and all Hilton Honors hotels are taking part.

The Hilton booking page is here.

IHG One Rewards current offers

IHG One Rewards is offering 2,000 bonus points for every two nights you stay.

The promotion runs from 1st April to 31st May. Only cash nights count, not reward stays. Existing bookings are OK.

You can register here. Our full article on the promotion is here.

Whilst not hugely rewarding (we value 2,000 points at £8) some members were emailed with an additional bonus offer which stacks on top of this one.

You can book your IHG stays here.

Marriott Bonvoy current offers

Marriott Bonvoy (Renaissance, The Ritz-Carlton, Sheraton, Westin, W, Aloft, St Regis, Luxury Collection, Moxy etc)

Until 29th April, you will earn 1,000 bonus points per NIGHT and double elite night credits on every cash stay at a Marriott hotel.

I value a Bonvoy point at 0.5p so this is equivalent to a £5 bonus per night.  It is clearly a better deal on cheap one-night stays than expensive week-long holidays.

For many readers, the double elite night credits will be more important, allowing you to get a head start on status requalification for next year.

Our full article is here. You can register here. Note that registration closes early on 15th April.

The home page for bookings is here.

world of hyatt narrow

World of Hyatt launched its latest promotion on 1st March, which will run until 30th April.

You will receive 3,000 bonus World of Hyatt points for every three nights you stay. Nights do not need to be consecutive. Reward nights count.

You can register here. Registration closes early on 15th April.

Our full article is here. The Hyatt booking page is here.

And finally …..

If you booking a luxury hotel, remember that we can offer you exclusive additional benefits at Four Seasons, Mandarin Oriental, Peninsula and similar hotels.

    Amex offers are dire at present for me. Aside from the long running ones I haven’t registered a new offer this year on my platinum card.
    On my BAPP card which is a DUP card from my wife’s account I have just 5 possible offers and in a year have not registered for a single offer on that card. The main card is similarly bereft of options.
    I might add that a recent very simple task for Amex has developed into a full blown complaint. The Philippine call centre staff are simply out of the depth. Service is dire and it is getting harder and harder to justify the fee in the face of this.

  • Thomas Atkins says:

    Same here! (I’m looking at you Platinum card). Makes me wonder if Amex actually want me as a customer seeing that I don’t generate them any profit by way of interest accruals 🤔 I have the scissors at the ready before fee renewal time…

  • davefl says:

    New Marriott offer popped up today, Earn up to 45000 points after 15 paid stays. – 15k after 5, another 15k after 10 etc. Stated explicitely stays, not nights .
    The end date is 3 months after the month in which you register.

  • Rob D says:

    I’ve got an IHG ‘just for you’ offer of double elite night credits on the next 3 stays, up to 7 nights each time until May 23rd. This must be down to only stayed once with them in 15 months, although I’m Platinum status.

  • Blair Waldorf Salad says:

    Not sure if it’s of any relevance but I had a look through my friend’s Amex offers here in the US and both Marriott and Hilton are there. Spend threshold is $1000 to get $150 back.

    • Rob says:

      The US offers are generally weaker than we’ve seen here, although they would often stack with credits which come as a card benefit.

  • CamFlyer says:

    The list of Amex offers is missing the Preferred Hotels spend £500, get £100 back at selected UK and Europe hotels. I hopefully just hit that one this weekend–and the offer drove me ro Preferred instead of chasing points in another programme (that, plus the family desire for a swimming pool, in Paris).
