Redeeming Hilton Honors points for the best value

You will get the best value out of your Hilton Honors points when redeeming them for free nights at Hilton brand hotels. All other redemptions will give your points significantly lower value.

Redeeming points for free nights

Redeeming Hilton Honors Points for free nights at Hilton brand hotels will typically give your points the best value. For award nights, most redemptions will give your points between 0.5 and 0.7 cents in value though it is possible to get higher or lower depending on the property.

Hilton does not have an award chart, so you will not know how much your points are worth until you start booking. At that point you can compare the cash price and award price.

Here's a few of the many top properties that Hilton has around the globe that can get you some grand value out of your Hilton Honors Points:

  • Maldives - Hilton has two top-tier properties in the Maldives: Waldorf Astoria Maldives Ithaafushi and Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. You're bound to get very high value out of your points due to cash prices ranging from $700 and $2,000 (or more) per night.
  • Europe - Hilton has properties all over Europe. Of those many properties, you can get some great value if you plan on visiting Waldorf Astoria Amsterdam (Amsterdam, Netherlands) or The Biltmore Mayfair, LXR Hotels & Resorts (London, England).
  • All Inclusive Resorts - Hilton's has a total of 13 all-inclusive resorts located around the world. Redemptions at these properties offer the average value of around 0.5 cents each, BUT... it's all inclusive so you're technically going to get significantly more value if you factor in not having to pay for meals, snacks, drinks, activities, and entertainment.
  • Other Top Locations: Hilton has many more properties scattered across the globe that can net you some solid value in top destinations. This includes Conrad Hong Kong (Hong Kong, China), Conrad Bora Bora Nua (French Polynesia) and Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort (Maui, Hawaii, USA).

Hilton 5th night free perk

Hilton's 5th Night Free Benefit is the easiest way to get the most value out of your Hilton Honors Points. This benefit allows you to book 5 consecutive award nights for the cost of 4.

In order to use this benefit you'll need to have elite status with Hilton Honors. This is obtained by:

  • Earning a certain amount of stays in a calendar year at Hilton
  • Earning a certain amount of nights in a calendar year at Hilton
  • Earning a certain amount of Hilton Honors base points in a calendar year

Hilton does not offer any co-branded credit cards in Canada, but you can obtain complimentary Hilton Honors Gold status with The Platinum Card or The Business Platinum Card.

Transferring points to airline partners

Hilton Honors Points can be transferred to over 40 travel partners. The transfer ratio will vary depending on the partner, but most are 10:1 meaning that 10,000 Hilton Honors Points can be converted to 1,000 airline miles.

This isn't the best use of Hilton Honors Points, but it can be a good for topping off your account if you're a few miles short of a redemption.

Car rentals

Using your Hilton Honors Points for car rentals will give you an average value of around 0.25 cents per point. Hilton Honors Points can be redeemed for rentals with:

  • Alamo
  • Enterprise
  • National

In order to redeem your points for cars with Hilton, you'll need to jump to Hilton's car rental portal and select the option to pay with points. Once you select your pick-up/drop-off location and dates, you'll be given a list of prices for Alamo, Enterprise, and National.

The cost in points for basic rentals can cost as much as a free nights at Hilton Hotels which is why I recommend avoiding this redemption if possible.

Redeeming points for car rentals can be quite pricey.

Rides with Lyft

Hilton Honors Points can be redeemed for Lyft credit at a value of 0.22 cents per point. Redemptions start as low as 4,500 Hilton Honors Points for a CA$10 or $US10 credit.
