Hilton is offering an interesting deal for their 4th Quarter Promotion. HHonors members have their choice of either earning double points on all stays or a free night certificate after 4 stays or 10 nights for paid accommodations from October 1-December 31st, 2011. Registration required. Choose wisely – your selection can not be changed once you register. FAQs. The great thing is that there is no category restriction (but there is a hearty opt-out list per below).

Once a member completes either the 4-stays or 10 nights a free night certificate will be generated and sent to the email address on record usually within 14 days to 6 weeks. You will still earn Hhonors points even if you select the free night certificate. Certificates can be used at any of the 3700+ Hilton worldwide properties. There is no limit to the number of free night certificates that can be earned during this promotional period. The certificate will cover a standard room and tax for one night and expire 6 months after the date they are issued.

HHonors award stays are not part of the promotion.

Overall, I think this is pretty generous compared to the other promotions out there. I guess it all really depends on your stay patterns – if you have a lot of expensive stays that take place over Thursday and Sunday nights, then the Starwood Triple point promo might make sense.

The most concerning thing to me is the huge opt out lists that are becoming standard. I’d love to see hotel loyalty programs really get their member hotels in check and force participation in promotions. I think it only sets their most loyal members up for disappointment when they find out that one of their hotel stays didn’t qualify (like what happened to me with the SPG promo when I was in Munich!).

    This promo went from totally intriguing to totally lame as soon as I read the ‘opt-out’ list. I didn’t count, but there are a high number of Bay Area properties that aren’t participating. Too bad, I was going to select the free stay certificate.

  • Ana Ortega

    staying several nights in the Bay Area over Thanskgiving week and lo and behold all the hotels we’re using are on the opt-out list… booo!

  • Benthelefty

    What is considered a “stay” as opposed to a night? I can’t find that in the FAQ…the 6 month expiration is pretty lame, too :/

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_QFD23CACDD3RMOXLAJX6LYSG5U J

    So does this mean that I stay at cheap hampton inn hotels in suburban areas (that are not on opt-out list) in 4 different locations with one night each, then I will get a free stay at Double tree at Time Sq for free???

  • Anonymous

    Stay is considered any number of days between check in and check out.
    Night is just that, one room night.

  • Jerry Leffleman

    Last time they offered certificates, Hampton stays did NOT count. I see no mention of that now, but….

  • toomanybooks

    Yes. Last year I turned eight cheap Hampton/Doubletree stays in Orlando into 2 $1100 nights at the Conrad in Brussels.

    Each breakfast we got for free would have cost more than the Hampton.

  • A Home

    Not sure on this so you might want to check with an HHonors operator, but I believe the opt out list is for properties that you do not earn a night or stay at during the promotion. Once you earn the certificate I believe you can stay in any Hilton property as long as they have Reward Stay rooms available. Hope this helps.
