48 hour cancellation window to get points back?

Because of risky weather, I looked into the possibility of changing my flight itinerary for an upcoming layover at the O'Hare Hilton. I'd booked a room for one night @50k points, and upon checking my booking I discovered that with less than 48 hours notice, the reservation is non-refundable, meaning my points won't be credited back if I were to cancel.

Is it a consistent policy, meaning that all points bookings have a 48 hour cancellation window? Is this a recent change in policy?

I'm recently returning to Hilton after the Marriott merger and may well have missed these rule differences/changes.

It depends on the particular property, but 48 hours is pretty common.

I believe usual policy actually is that you'll get your points back and be charged a no-show fee. Same as Marriott.

Hilton went to a general 48 hour cancellation policy a couple of years ago. Individual hotels and some rates either expand or shorten the cancellation policy for a particular stay.

Hilton's 48 or is it 72 hours? Cancellation policy is killing me!
