Earlier in the year Hilton relaunched their loyalty scheme, Hilton Honors. The relaunch, which included a name change from Hilton HHonors to Hilton Honors, also brought a few new features to the scheme – the Hilton points pooling feature being one of the best features to arrive after the relaunch. When the relaunch of their loyalty scheme was announced Hilton Honors award pricing changed, meaning that the amount of Hilton Honors points you require to book either a free night, or a points and cash night changed.
Hilton did the right thing and published a chart detailing the amount of points required at the current level, and after the relaunch of the scheme. What was surprising to see was that the amount of points required to book either a free or points and cash night did not increase. In fact at some hotels during specific times of the year (the hotels low season) it was actually cheaper to book a redemption.
Hilton allow you to check all of their hotels through a dedicated award redemption pricing site. You can either search for the specific hotel or the location if you want to compare the standard room redemption rates of Hilton hotels in and around the same area.
Searching for “Birmingham” shows all Hilton properties throughout the world, including Birmingham UK and US.
The redemption rate for a standard room is then shown. This details the maximum amount of Hilton Honors points to redeem to book the award night. For the Hilton Birmingham Metropole the maximum amount of Hilton Honors points required is 40,000.
The Hilton Leeds can be booked for a maximum of 30,000 Hilton Honors points.
While the London Hilton on Park Lane is 80,000 Hilton Honors points per night.
