We are just weeks away from the end of this promotion. Any speculation on what is next?

Last year, wasn't it double points for the rest of the year (after the first promo of the year ended)?

I have to admit that I am curious as well, primarily because I have a trip second weekend of May and I fear it will fall between promos as I could see them starting the next one after Memorial Day weekend.

Does a night from May 5th till May 6th counts for this unlimited promotion?

I inquired and was informed registration begins April 27 for double points starting May 6 and possibly 2000 points per stay so basically a continuation of the first promo.

Since the new Promo or the continuing Promo starts May 6 my guess is it will count for the previous promo.

My understanding of these promotions is that pretty much always the date the promo ends aka May 5 means you need to be checking out on May 5. You won't qualify if you are checking in for May 5 and checking out on May 6.

From the FAQ:

If I check-in before January 4, 2019, or check-out after May 5, 2019, do I still earn credit for that stay?
Registered Hilton Honors members will receive a bonus only for the nights of an eligible stay completed during the Promotion Period, regardless of a check-in date before the Promotion Period begins or a check-out date after the Promotion Period ends.

Your night would not be completed during the promotion period, so the way I read this, it would not count. However, it would appear that a stay from May 4 to May 6 would count as one night.

Check in Jan 3 check out Jan 5 would count as 1 night. Check in May 4 check out May 6 may count as 2 nights .

In the past it may of gone both ways. Hopefully someone checking in May 5 and out May 6 will let us know .

I would interpret the language in the opposite manner. The Jan 3 night would be completed on Jan 4, which is within the promotion period. The May 5 night is completed on May 6, which is outside the promotion period. Having said that, our interpretations are irrelevant. Hilton's interpretation is what matters.

Yes I agree how Hilton's IT interprets it counts the most. You also pointed somthing out that I didn't make clear. Historically Hilton counts the check in date so check in Jan 3 out the 4th will not count and check in May 5 out 6 does count. Again historically this is the case without any IT Voodoo. Now take the miles and more promo ending Oct 31st 2018. I had a stay Oct 30 with it showing 2500 miles posted but still hasn't posted to my M&M account. I also had a stay that was check in Oct 31 out Nov 1 that no M&M posted to Honors account but others have posted on FT receiving the miles for a Oct 31 check in one night stay.
