Hilton created LXR in 2018 as a soft brand. Soft brands avoid dictating specifications for decor and operations that hard brands (like Hiltons Waldorf-Astoria) do. Yet they let owners enjoy a global hotel companys loyalty program, volume discounts with procurement, and other back-office advantages.

For the first time, I had a hassle splitting the charge at checkout across two Aspires because of the hotel (not Amex). P2 and I have otherwise successfully done this since the card launched.

The hotel automatically charged the entire stay to one credit card before I checked out. I stopped by the front desk to check out and request the split, but they said it wouldn't be possible because they had already charged me.

It took me over 40 minutes to politely convince the front desk agent that they could reverse the single charge and then charge me again across two cards, wait for her to call her supervisor to learn how to do that, and then actually process it.

It all worked out in the end (2x split charges, 2x posted credits), but it was a big hassle and also cost me quite a bit of time. From now on, I'm going to go down to the front desk the day before checkout and ask them to process a charge on P2's card at that time. I haven't had an issue doing this in the past, and it'll hopefully keep this issue from happening again.

Recently visited Quebec City and decided to add one night at Doubletree by Hilton Quebec Resort to burn the credit, plus dinner at Le Dijon, came out to CAD$287, AmEx converted to US$209, full $200 credit applied 4 days after checkout. Even better, was able to use the $75 Uber promo (around CAD$103 at the time) credit from signing up for CLEAR (about CAD$25 each way from Gare du Palais train station)

My suggestion is to do this at check-in. This is what I do, at the end of the check-in I pull out the deck of Ascends and Aspires, shuffle them, cut, and start dealing. After I lay them all out on the table in front of me Texas hold them style, I start placing my bets, by saying: Put $200 on this one, $200 on this one, $50 on this one, $50 on this one, $50 on this one, and the remaining $ on this one...

This made me laugh

I can't even imagine the range of reactions you get from that move, but I approve.

Hilton Surfer's Paradise has gift certificates available online. Do you think this will trigger the credit? Not really wanting to spend AU$250 to find out!

If I was in your position, I would consider purchasing the REAL ANATOMY EXHIBITION FOR $5.00 AU and see how that codes.
It is for the same resort, from the same website, and is only $5.00 AU, but it's a gamble either way.
Good Luck,

At the Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas. We went to the pool to have drinks while we wait for our room. Had to charge to my Aspire card since no room assignment yet. Would I get reimbursed for those charges for the resort credit or only if it was charged to room?

Depends on who billed the card. if it goes as restaurant, no. If it goes as hotel, yes

Have there been any other DPs regarding non-US hotel advanced rate being eligible besides Japan?

Yes....I remember reading about one in 2018. If I have a chance to locate the post I will.

Typically advanced-purchase non-US hotels process the transaction directly so they'll be eligible for the credit.

EDIT: The post I was thinking about is from a property in Japan: https://www.flyertalk.com/forum/29514343-post11.html

However, I still think I've come across other examples,
GOOD LUCK.
