Hilton Honors has been running a double points (20 points per $1) promotion since May 1, 2018. A few weeks ago the end date of this promotion was extended from August 31 to Sunday Sep 9.
This means Labor Day holiday weekend stays Aug 31-Sep 3 are now covered for double points.
Hilton Honors is a program I held Diamond membership in for several years in the early 2000s before shifting my focus on Starwood and Hyatt as increases to hotel reward rates meant decreased value in points.
Over the past three years Hilton Honors has returned to my hotel stay pattern more frequently due to good hotel reward value I found in Slovakia and Poland, countries with several hotels at the 5,000 and 10,000 points reward level. I still have my sight on Hilton brand hotels in Romania for an October 2018 trip, where there are several more hotels at 5,000 points and 10,000 points per night.
This summer I had 8 paid nights in Krakow and Oswiecim (Auschwitz Museum), Poland to earn about 5,000 bonus points with double points. My other objective with Hilton stays was earning Silver elite with 4 stays to be eligible for 5th night free rewards for my trip to Romania in a couple months.
Looking forward to seeing the next Hilton Honors promotion come out sometime in the next couple weeks.
