Hilton HHonors category 2 hotels USA and Americas 2016 list

All but three hotels of the 76 Hilton HHonors category 2 hotels in the USA are Hampton Inn brand properties. With 76 hotels in the USA at 10,000 points, these seem like good road trip hotels to me, especially for a drive through the southeastern USA which is a cheap ‘Drive Out of Florida’ annual option between April and June for sub-$10 per day one-way car rentals.

I won’t fly cross-country to book an extended stay at a Hampton Inn, but I’d definitely reroute my road trip 20 miles off a direct route for a hotel room at 10,000 points when prevailing rates are $120 around the region for a comparable hotel.

USA HHonors category 2 hotels are concentrated in the southeastern and Gulf states.

Except for one hotel in Massachusetts, there are no category 2 hotels in the northeast US once you travel east of Ohio and north of Virginia. Only two hotels, one in Colorado and one in California lie north or west of a sort of diagonal line from New Mexico, Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa and Illinois. These category 2 hotels are located in USA ‘flyover’ country, as some flyers are fond of saying.

Same Hampton Name, Different Place

Something I noticed years ago is there are several Hampton Inn hotels with the same name located in different states. This can be a problem if you search for Hampton Inn Miami on the web. Watch out when you are wasted and book that incredible room rate and learn that great hotel reservation for Hampton Inn Miami was actually booked for the Hampton Inn in Miami, Oklahoma.

Hampton Inn Miami OK 

Hampton Inn Miami, Miami, Oklahoma is HHonors category 2 hotel at 10,000 points per reward night, 5th night free. Hampton Inn Miami South Beach – 17th Street, Miami Beach, Florida is HHonors category 9.

  1. I have stayed at all three Panama properties but as a paid stay. Rates are usually under US$80 — great for mattress runs when using the cheap biz fares LAX-PTY. The HGI is a really good property with excellent Diamond recognition. Only stayed at the Hampton once when it was new and they were still working out some opening issues.

    Thanks for the list!
