Hilton’s Q1 promo open for registration

The Q1 promo for Hilton is open for registration, as reported over at PointsHoarder. The promo – double points or double miles for all nights through 31 March 2013 – is neither particularly generous nor stingy. Still, it isn’t enough to sway my hotel spending. For one thing, I am not particularly inclined to sift through the list of 600ish non-participating properties when I go to book a reservation, just to see if I might get a few extra points along the way. Plus, I find the 15% back I get via hotels.com and their WelcomeRewards program to be far more valuable personally. Given the upped requirements to attain HHonors Gold in 2013 the program has even less value to me.

Still, I’ll be registering for the double miles version, just in case I happen to end up in a participating hotel. You never know…

I'm Seth, also known as the Wandering Aramean. I was bit by the travel bug 30 years ago and there's no sign of a cure. I fly ~200,000 miles annually; these are my stories. You can connect with me on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.


  1. If you book through hotels.com, you don’t get stay credit for achieving status, correct?

  2. What would be the best miles program to use now since BMI is gone with their 1,000 mile stays?

  3. For the first time in 10 years, I’m abandoning Hilton and moving my ~45-50k in spend to Marriott Hotels. I’m fed up with the non-participating hotels in their quarterly promotions, along with the closure of executive lounges at places like the San Francisco Hilton, and the so-called upgrades which are just awful. There’s not even a lifetime elite program in place, so time to move my activity to Marriott.
