Hilton Rome Cavalieri Rebranded as Waldorf=Astoria

The Rome Cavalieri has been the premier European hotel property of Hilton International for years. This hotel was one of the few HHonors Category 6 hotels when I started looking in 2000 for wonderful Hilton Hotels to spend my points. Unfortunately my plans to Italy were canceled twice and I have never made it to Rome to visit this prestigious hotel.
Rome Cavalieri Free Nights Using Points
Don’t Delay and Book Today while you can still get a free night at the Rome Cavalieri for 40,000 points or even better, a VIP-only GLONP2 6-night reward for 175,000 points.
I was able to find availability for a 175,000 points, six-night GLONP2 on my first selection of dates for November 13-19, 2008 when I called HHonors reservations today.
Stays at the Waldorf=Astoria Cavalieri beginning after February 28, 2009 will require 60,000 points per free night or a VIP-Only Waldorf=Astoria Collection award will cost 265,000 points for a 6-night stay.
The HHonors redemption level increases to 60,000 points per night from March 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009. This Loyalty Traveler does not expect to see the redemption rate drop back to 40,000 points per night again. [link here for Rome Cavalieri redemption chart]
Get more value out of your Hilton HHonors points and plan that Italian getaway.
You don’t really want to spend $400 for a paid night, do you?
November 17-20, 2008 Monday to Thursday stay: $1,200USD for the 3-night stay
Nonrefundable internet rate = 275€/night (tax included) or about $400USD per night.
There is a long-running FlyerTalk thread on the Rome Cavalieri. This link goes to page 77 of this discussion with comments about the hotel from September 2008.
