In my experience, some can be quite fast. Within 1 week for a stay at the Hilton Berlin. Within 2 days for a Hampton Inn stay. Sometimes they don;t post so you'll have to chase it up with HHonors service centre.
It depends on the hotel. I stayed in Miami (hilton) on 11/17/00-posted 11/18/00, in Key West (Hampton) on 11/18/00-posted on 11/19/00 and again in Miami (Embassy)on 11/19/00 but no Embassy miles posted yet. I like the Embassy but always-always-always have a problem with the points/miles being posted. Just keep checking you HHonors account. BUT don't wait, get on the phone and get an answer.
I checked out of the London Hilton one month ago this week but nothing has shown yet in my account; do "foreign" postings take longer than domestic?? As this will be my first double dipping AND we're gold, quite anxious for this to appear!!

Hopefully this isn't typical. I had two UK stays in early September. I waited two months and wrote HH and sent in my folios. Nothing. Several weeks later I e-mailed them. Nothing. Last week I called and had to spend 40 minutes on the phone and finally got the points posted. In total, I invested over an hour of my time and my time is more valuable than that. Is there worse customer service than to just ignore your customers?
I travel to Latin America often, and it can take a month as compared to days for domestic Hilton stays. I was told by a HHonors rep this is for two reasons:
1) All foreign Hilton's are on a different system which adds some tim
2) Some foreign hotels wait to be paid by the credit card company before sending in the miles credit

Hmmm. I am registered for HHonors in the UK and stayed in the Paris Hilton on the 2nd Nov. Last week (6 weeks later) the stay had still not materialised so I faxed the receipt from the hotel into the UK service centre and they put it on the next day.
It seems that for stays outside the US, the process is more manual than automatic...
