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.
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.
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.
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.
