Devaluation: More Hilton Honors Increases Hotels Cost Over 100K Points

More Hilton Honors Increases Hotels Cost Over 100K Points

In an unannounced devaluation to Hilton Honors, more Hilton hotels now cost over 100K points per night. There were previously just two Hilton hotels that cost over 100,000 points per night, but we are now seeing more than this. Here’s what we know about this change.

Previous Pricing

Previously, only two hotels cost over 100K points per night with Hilton Honors:

  • The Waldorf Astoria Maldives – up to 150K points per night
  • The Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos – up to 120K points per night (read our review here)

Aside from these, other luxury hotels in the Hilton portfolio would cost up to 95,000 points per night. Note that this is pricing for a standard room. If no standard rooms were available, you might see higher prices than this, but that’s because the pricing was for suites, upgrades, etc.

New Pricing

It’s hard to track award pricing with Hilton Honors, since the program eliminated its award chart in 2017. And since Hilton Honors didn’t announce this change, we are relying on data for prices that people have noticed. Other hotels may cost more points now but simply haven’t been noticed.

These are the hotels that previously cost under 100K points per night but now cost over this threshold:

  • The Waldorf Astoria Beverly Hills – price increased from 95K per night to 120K points per night
  • The Conrad Maldives – price increased from 95K per night to 120K points per night
  • The Waldorf Astoria Grand Wailea – price increased from 95K per night to 110K points per night
  • The Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam – price increased from 95K per night to 110K points per night
  • The Roku Kyoto – price increased from 95K per night to 110K points per night

This Aligns with Other Devaluations

2022 is off to a roaring start with hotel devaluations. Along with more Hilton Honors properties now costing over 100K points per night, remember that Marriott is moving to dynamic pricing and Hyatt activated its peak/off-peak pricing.

All of these changes make it harder and hard to know not only what your points and miles are worth but how many of them you will need for an upcoming reservation. This further reinforces the importance of diversifying the points you have and using transferable currencies to have more options. Plus, it drives home the point that hoarding points usually isn’t beneficial, since they can be worth less value in the blink of an eye.

Final Thoughts

In an announced devaluation, additional Hilton Honors properties now cost more than 100K points per night. This isn’t a welcome change, and the properties on the list are simply the ones people have noticed so far. There may be additional properties on this new list, and we will update here if any are discovered.

  1. If you think that’s bad, I looked into the Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace for Friday March 26. 203,000 points for one night! The Hilton Orlando Disney Springs across the street was “only” 150,000 points.

    • Scott – that’s definitely not standard pricing. Either all of the standard rooms are gone (so those prices are for suites, etc.) or the hotel is super full, so they’ve used up all of the cheap rooms and now are charging premiums due to high occupancy. That’s one of the pluses and minuses rolled into one: you can ALWAYS use your points in this system, but the rates for those “last available” rooms suck.

  2. No shock. All the huge sign on bonuses had to result in devaluations across the board so that should shock no one. Also prices are up on hotels dramatically so of course it will cost more since there is a relative value of points the companies try to keep.

    Anyone whining about this is so clueless on basic business it is scary!!
