Hilton HHonors - Q2 Success Stories
Jul 1, 12, 9:27 pm
I'm making this thread so that we can share our success stories for the Q2 promotion that just ended.
I stayed a total of 42 nights at an average rate of $276 per night. This netted me, along with the Double Dip preference and Double Points choice, about 330,000 points (the room service I ordered helped a little too :))
What can 330K points get me?
Your turn to share! :D

Assuming that you didn't omit the tax rate in your quoted room rate average, and that your room service bill wasn't in the thousands, that's a pretty decent rate of return. As long as you can redeem your points at 'standard', not 'premium' rates, you may have been able to get 10%+ return on your stays, which is excellent value.
Not in the ball park of the OP and it involves other promos, but a 2 night stay netted the following starting with the Q2 promotion:Base Points - Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel 3,855
DIAMOND VIP BONUS - 50% 2011 - Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel 1,927
DIAMOND MYWAY BONUS - Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel 1,000
HH DOUBLE DIP - Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel 1,927
2011 ANY WEEKEND ANY WHERE BONUS - Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel 1,000
2012 Q2 DOUBLE YOUR HHONORS - DBL PTS - Hilton Surfers Paradise Hotel 3,855
HILTON HHONORS 24 HOUR BONUS EVENT 2,500

I got this from recent two-night stay in Conrad New York using their opening sale promo.
2012 Q2 DOUBLE YOUR HHONORS - DBL PTS - Conrad New York 6,348
Base Points - Conrad New York 6,348
CI NEW YORK DOUBLE PTS OFFER - Conrad New York 6,348
LRM 2K POINTS OFFER - Conrad New York 4,000
GOLD VIP BONUS - 25% 2012 - Conrad New York 1,587

So 20,635 Hilton points plus 1000 AY miles.

I opted for double miles. In the quarter I had 6 stays and 13 nights. They broke down as follows:
3 stays/10 nights using award redemptions - no miles.
2 stays/2 nights at a non-participating Doubletree - 500 miles each night.
1 stay/1 night at a Hampton - double miles so received 200 miles total.
So I netted 100 bonus miles for the promotion.
Funny thing, I'm very happy with Hilton. In addition to ten free nights in Italy, I earned 9,900 points and 1,200 airline miles during the quarter on stays. (And another 38,432 in credit card spending.)
