Best Ways to Use Hilton Honors Points for Maximum Value


Hilton no longer publishes a list of hotel categories or their corresponding award chart. Hilton instead switched to a dynamic award pricing model in which hotels with a higher demand on a certain date will cost more to redeem your points, with the exception of hotels considered in the now unpublished categories 1 to 3, which have a fixed-point redemption. You can check a hotel’s maximum standard room reward price on Hilton’s website, but for a specific date, just check it directly on Hilton’s online reservation system. 

Cash and Points

Hilton also implemented the ability to redeem points + cash on a sliding scale.

 

5th Night Free

Silver, Gold, and Diamond elite members get their 5th night free on standard award nights when you use your points. This can be a great way to get some extra value out of your Hilton Honors points.
