Honors Discount Launches at 4,500 Properties Worldwide

Hi all,

Over the past few months, you may have noticed a discount for HHonors members being offered at select properties for stays booked directly through Hilton channels. Iím excited to share that we will now be offering this exclusive discount to ALL HHonors members, every day, as long as they book directly with us, at more than 4,500 hotels worldwide. Members will also continue to receive instant benefits like free Wi-Fi, HHonors Points and digital check-in with room selection, along with all the other perks of being an HHonors member that most of you already enjoy. All HHonors members have access to the discount every day for any of our properties around the world, with the exception of bookings made for hotels in Mainland China, including Hong Kong, Taiwan or and Macau.

As always, Iím here for your questions, thoughts and feedback, so keep them coming my way.

Thank you!
Lauren

Lauren, thanks for the update. Is there a list of participating hotels? If so, how does one access it?

Many thanks

My employer just switched to requiring Concur to be used for all bookings. Is there a way to comply with this and still get the Hhonors discount?

As of yesterday, there were 4,676 Hilton properties. Who are the holdouts?

Is there a Hilton-branded hotel in Taiwan? And are you implying that Taiwan is part of China? NOT politically correct.

lol another "promotion" from Hilton...

I have stayed at the same hotel, 2-3 weeks per month, for the past 6 months. Every time, without fail, the room rate was $109. Regardless of day of the week, regardless of how far booked in advance, $109. Like clockwork.

I just looked at booking for my next two trips. The room rate is now $114 and the new HHonors discount brings it down to $111.

It's like an outlet mall. Mark up the prices and put them "on sale" back to their original prices.

Based on what I'm reading, maybe it's time to start rethinking my credit cards and steer clear of ones that get me hotel points. What's the point of continuing to use a hotel that raises prices in an attempt to make it appear that I'm getting a discount?

Uh, 4676 is "more than 4,500", isn't it? So who said there were any holdouts? It's just rounding, and admitted as such.

Note for those not familiar with the program - this a laughable bogus "discount" that is created solely for the purpose of marketing. Based on my experience you are likely to find better rates without it. YMMV of course.

Sometimes these "corporate deals" are not always the best. If you can get a better rate, then you should point it out to your boss and try to book it.

Any normal person/organization would round 4676 to "more than 4600" or "nearly 4700." The question is a fair (and obvious) one.

I would think they don't want to have to change the language on the promo soon, whether they deflag 77 hotels next month (putting it under 4600) or add 25 hotels next month (putting it over 4700). So IMHO it would actually be foolish for them to be a specific as you suggest.

However, I would suggest that it would have been clearer if they had simply said "at all of our over 4500 hotels".
