Room Rate Analysis

Yesterday I checked rates for several cities in Europe where I will be traveling during this flash sale. I did not see the flash sale rates at most Hilton brand hotels in cities I am staying. Room rates in Bratislava and Kosice, Slovakia are two hotels I stayed at last month and the rates for Bratislava are actually higher with the Flash Sale during my winter dates of travel than they were in September.

Vienna has four Hilton-brand hotels, but only the two of the hotels offer the Flash Sale rates. Krakow, Poland has four Hilton brand hotels, but only two of the hotels farther from city center offer the flash sale discount during my dates of travel.

Hilton Garden Inn Krakow Airport

$38 per night

HGI Krakow Poland $38 rate

Poland is one of the least expensive countries in the world for Hilton rates. An airport hotel is at most a one-night stay for me.
