Good reading: What is Hilton Honors Elite Status Worth in 2018?

Upgrades are so hit or miss (mostly miss) with Hilton, I wouldn't expect or count on it for a vacation, especially one paid for with points. Resorts often have different benefits too depending. Might want to check out a specific Hawaii property thread for details on that.
