I Think Hilton Just Devalued the 5th Night Free Benefit

Hi all

I'm certainly no expert in the system you guys clearly know very well but if I'm reading a change in the T&Cs right the 5th night free benefit has just taken a hit.

Two main changes:

1 - The value of the 5th night is no longer calculated using an average - it's just set at zero.
2 - The points cost of the remaining nights is then raised to what Hilton calls the "full Standard Room Reward price" before being added together to give you the cost of the 5 night award.

I've done a quick example calculation on my blog here to illustrate how this can change things (mods please remove the link if you don't think it's helpful).

All thoughts very welcome - am I reading this right?
