Conrad Las Vegas Diamond Benefits
I hardly have elite status anymore, but that’s fine with me. One of the few I have clanging around is very moldy Hilton Honors Diamond elite status from an Aspire card cancelled long ago. But I certainly won’t turn down Hilton extending it! My Diamond status came in handy during my recent stays at the Conrad Las Vegas. However, understanding the limitations of these benefits at this property can be confusing, especially when the front desk doesn’t explain them. So then, I’ll cover the exact Conrad Las Vegas Diamond elite benefits today, based on my additional interactions with the front desk and management.
Update 7/7/22: The food credit has become even more limited.
Conrad Las Vegas Diamond Elite Benefits
Hilton Honors Diamond elites can expect some of the usual benefits during their Conrad stays. Here’s a rundown of what these elites receive:
- 100% bonus on base points
- Digital Key (opt-in anytime)
- Two complimentary bottles of water at check-in
- Room upgrade based upon availability
- Complimentary Premium in-room Wi-Fi Access
- Late check out based upon availability
- Daily Food and Beverage Credit: Valued at $25 per person (up to two guests total) redeemable only at Dawg House now.
- 1k Hilton Honors Points per stay
The Reality of These Benefits
Some of the initial benefits, like room or suite upgrades may outweigh the MyWay benefits, but they aren’t guaranteed. Indeed, I wasn’t upgraded on my first Conrad stay, but I was on my second. It’s very important to understand the limitations of the Diamond daily food and beverage credit at the Conrad Las Vegas, especially given the currently-tight hours on the properties.
During my stay, Sun’s Out Buns Out was only open for breakfast. Also, The Kitchen closed at 3 pm daily. One server at The Kitchen cited low demand and labor shortages as the reasons for early closure. Based on what I viewed, this had more to do with the latter than the former.
Hilton has touted the flexibility of the new daily food and beverage credits over the previous elite breakfast benefits. However, the Conrad Las Vegas offering here leaves little room for elite member error. In my experience, plan to use the entire $50 credit at one meal, or punctually obtain to smaller meals. This is just one writer’s opinion, but given all of the outstanding dining options in Vegas, I would recommend using the entire credit on one occasion. Don’t waste a second meal at The Kitchen or Sun’s Out Buns Out when superior alternatives exist.
The Diamond benefits were largely the same during my Crockfords stay, particularly the daily food and beverage credit. I haven’t stayed at the Hilton at Resorts World, so I can’t speak first-hand about the specific Diamond benefits there. If you’ve stayed at the Hilton, please share your experience in the comments.
Conrad Las Vegas Diamond Benefits: Conclusion
As Mark and I have each previously noted, the value of the new Hilton elite food and beverage credits can vary widely. With the change, Hilton has further obfuscated what was previously only a semi-clear breakfast benefit. The new benefit takes more time to understand and may entail a bit more effort to consume, but elites can come out ahead. I know I did at The Foundry in Asheville, NC. I recommend clarifying the specifics and limitations of Diamond benefits at check-in on each stay no matter what hotel one is visiting in the Hilton portfolio.
