Hilton Friends & Family Sale
Hilton is currently running a Friends & Family sale, allowing you to save up to 50% off the Best Available Rate (BAR) at participating hotels and resorts throughout the Hilton Worldwide portfolio. Two popular Caribbean resorts are pricing rooms $129 – $150 per night during Christmas week using the discount. I was able to find Barbados rooms priced as low as $129 (for the first few nights) and Curacao rooms priced at $150. These hotels are normally priced so high during the holidays that the only suitable option is to redeem for points. In this case, an awards stay would be a waste. I can personally vouch for the Barbados hotel as we stayed there last winter and had an amazing time and had our two rooms upgraded to ocean-view executive rooms. We’ll be heading to Curacao this winter, but I’ve chosen the Marriott over the Hilton which seems to be in need of some refurbishments. You can search Hilton properties worldwide for the Friends and Family rate using this link, remember you must book by January 7, 2013 for travel December 14, 2012 – January 7, 2013.
Stays at these special F&F rate will earn HHonors points!
