The Hilton Honors Loyalty Program is one of the best loyalty programs you can join. And, as per usual, it pays to be as efficient as you can with your Hilton Honors points.
So, what are some of the best Hilton point redemptions? In this article we’ll be exploring where you can get the best value for your points around the world.
Imporant Points About Hilton Redemptions
Standard Room Reward Nights
For all of the properties below, I’m looking at a standard room reward night. If, for example, a standard room isn’t available on a certain date, you’ll likely see an inflated price since there are only non-standard rooms available.
Does 5th Night Free Always Apply?
Hilton’s 5th night free offer applies to all Hilton Group properties, across all of their brands. However, you only get your 5th night free if you book a standard room. If you book anything above that, the 5th night is not free.
Value Based On Price
The hotels below offer some of the top Hilton point redemptions in terms of monetary value. In other words, take your points, look at the price of the room and compare the two to see how much money you’re effectively extracting.
But, of course, value isn’t just about price. The hotel sets the price of the room but you will decide how much ‘value’ you’re really getting.
