Hilton HHonors Hotel Category Adjustments for 2014 Announced

“Effective 15 April 2014, 25 of our hotels and resorts (0.6% of our properties) will be increasing hotel category, and 14 of our hotels and resorts (0.3% of our properties) will be decreasing hotel category”, according to FlyerTalk member and official company representative HHonorsRepresentative. “We’ve made these modifications based on periodic review of our hotel reward categories as new hotels join the program and market dynamics change. The Hilton HHonors Standard Room Rewards Point Pricing Tool will reflect these changes as of April 15.” Here is a chart of the hotel and resort properties of the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program which will increase at least one level of hotel category…

If a stay at a Hilton hotel property is more valuable to you than flying as a passenger on this Boeing 747-400 aircraft operated by Virgin Atlantic, then convert your Virgin Atlantic Flying Club frequent flier loyalty program miles to Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program points as soon as possible, as the conversion ratio changes effective as of February 6, 2014.

Convert Flying Club Miles to HHonors Points? Do It Before February 6, 2014

If you are thinking about converting your Virgin Atlantic Airways Flying Club frequent flier loyalty program miles to Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program points, you had better act quickly if you do not want to suffer from a devaluation, as the conversion ratio drops from 1:2 to 2:3 as of February 6, 2014. As a result, FlyerTalk members are…

Hilton Worldwide is a Publicly Traded Company Once Again

Hilton Worldwide Holdings Incorporated has once again become a publicly traded company as of yesterday — and it appears that its investors could not be any happier. When Blackstone Group — a private equity firm based in New York — agreed to purchase Hilton Worldwide Holdings Incorporated in 2007 for $26 billion, it was at a time just before the commercial real estate market suffered financially and occupancies at hotels plunged dramatically. It appears that…

This pool at the Fiji Beach Resort and Spa Managed by Hilton is for adults only — and come January 6, 2014, you will no longer be able to use the Points and Vixed Miles earning style option to earn a fixed amount of frequent flier loyalty program miles. Then again, you will probably want to stay greater than three days at this resort property, so you will probably want to switch to the Points and Variable Miles earning style option for this stay anyway.

Discontinuation of Hilton HHonors Points and Fixed Miles Earning Style Option: An Analysis

An announcement released from the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program earlier today revealed that of three options of earning styles, one will be discontinued as of January 6, 2014: Points and Fixed Miles. Points and Fixed Miles had been my preferred earning style for many years. I am not particularly happy that this earning style will be discontinued in a couple of months — but at least there was some advance notice. So — does this mean that members of the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program have once again suffered from a devaluation, as they have earlier this year? The answer is…
