Same here

I started looking the moment the sale started. NOTHING

Actually called Hilton honours reservation hotline, they seemed clueless
I then called Hilton Tokyo, but was put on hold for over 20 minutes and I gave up

Tried the website chat, who said its sold out, although I suspect she was just BSing me to get out of the chat

I would be convinced it is sold out if I could see a single date for sale on another other hotels/dates. So far its all "X"s, on all dates.

So I tend to think the sale hasn't even begun.

Hi,

Thanks very much for posting this ftakak!

Osaka prices are very good ( c Y22k for the Conrad in late July ( about half price of the tokyo conrad) albeit it is non refundable.

Regards

I find this sale to have fascinating results. I originally had a 5 night stay on points at the Conrad Osaka for 369K total (less the 95K rate) in a standard room with 1 king. Then the sale came I and rebooked in a premium view king for a considerably decent price. Now, for those same dates the lowest priced room with 1 bed is a corner executive yet the room I booked [king premium view] is twice what I paid.

The pricing is dynamic and the sale is probably limited quantity per room type but it is still very unusual to see these sorts of changes given what I assume are non-refundable bookings. All in all, I guess despite having a now higher category room I can't see myself getting executive on gold given the lack of showing inventory.

Maybe I'm over-analyzing but it is fun to watch.

(same rate n/a for their lowest-category city view room which was going for like 57,000yen + tax).

has anyone else been stuffed around by the early ending of this 100 hour sale?

Per the T&C above, its supposed to end at 16:00 JST on 24 May, however the Hilton website had a 100 hour countdown showing it ended at 23:59 JST on 24 May, maybe iause it took them few hours to get the sale going. . Since i was following the website counter, i logged on to book after 16:00 JST to find the sale ended and countdown timer removed.

I called Hilton phone line (outsourced call centre I assume India) and got told a number of complaints have been raised about the sale ending early per the wrong counter time on Hilton website and only solution offered was to email Honours mail box..
I emailed the honours mailbox but get a response they are not able to help "due to system restriction and limitations" and I should call Guest Relations which I do but its the same call centre.

The call centre then says email Diamond Desk (I am a Diamond member), which I do.
But yet again same email response, "due to system restriction and limitation" they don't have the ability to deal with this issue and ask I call the Honours hotline, which I do but again its the same Indian call centre who still have no clue but to bounce me around.

This time I get through to USA Diamond desk, but again they have no clue about the issue and recommend I email "Guest relations", which I do.
But guess what, I get an email from HHonours mailbox straight away saying "due to system restriction and limitation" they don't have the ability to deal with this issue and I should call the Honours program in my local country (Australia), which of course is the same Indian call centre!

Just a circular mess where no one in Hilton wants to hear or deal with my issue!

That is frustrating. I only saw the 4pm deadline per the promo T&C, not the countdown bar. Had I seen it the other way I would have also been thrown off, but truth be told the inventory for the better prices (at least in my date range) was fairly dried up well before hour "100".

Omg I didnít even know about the counter. I just assumed it ran thru the end of 24th JPn time, but I just happened to go in there and snatch another incredible deal at ~3pm Jpn time.
