Loyalty Traveler Promotion Analysis

I have been comparing hotel promotions from different chains lately by the hotel rates offered around Anaheim, California for a December trip to Disneyland we have planned. This Hilton 72-hour sale looks like one of the best deals around. Hilton Anaheim at $97 per night looks like a great deal.

Three features of this sale make it a particularly good deal for HHonors members.

1. These rates can be booked and canceled at a later date with no penalty, within rate terms (generally one day before arrival; Anaheim requires 72 hours). This sale is a departure from normal Hilton sales requiring prepaid nonrefundable rates.

2. Some higher room categories are available for booking with the 72-hour sale, meaning you can possibly book suites at 30% off.

3. HHonors is currently offering double points (20 points/$1) for weekday stays and triple points (30 points/$1) for weekend stays completed by December 31 and a stackable 2,500 bonus points for 2-night stays in December. Be sure to sign up for both of these promotions if your stay is in December.
