Hilton HHonors category 2 hotels are 10,000 points per reward night. There are currently 140 hotels worldwide in HHonors category 2 out of Hilton Worldwide’s 4,000+ hotels. The value I see in HHonors category 2 hotels is these properties are likely to be the lowest priced reward nights for chain hotels in the cities where they are located.
I will post three lists of HHonors category 2 hotels. There are 28 hotels in the EMEA in this post. USA/Americas hotels and Asia hotels will be listed separately. Good news for Americans is most of the 140 category 2 hotels are located in the USA with 76 hotels.

When I looked over the HHonors category 1 hotels, there are few properties I would consider visiting, aside from Egypt. Nice thing about these category 2 hotels in EMEA region is most receive high 4 to 4.5 out of 5 ratings on TripAdvisor.com. There are several airport hotels to keep in mind for a cheap overnight on points and some nice looking hotel locations for UK, Poland, Romania and Slovakia. Turkey and Egypt are well populated with HHonors category 1 and 2 hotels if your travels take you there.

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Bratislava (*short trip from Vienna)
Hilton Sibiu Romania receives 4.5 circles on TripAdvisor.com reviews.
Hampton by Hilton Swinoujscie on Poland’s Baltic coast is one hotel that catches my eye for summer 2016 travel. I’ll be in Stockholm in July and this hotel looks like a potential summer destination as we tour the Baltic region. Room rates are around $130 per night.
