Blackout dates no more. Hilton HHonors opens up the calendar for all members Monday 4 February 2008 PDF Print The Hilton Family of Hotels has announced No Blackout Dates for all members of its HHonors guest reward program beginning in February. As long as a standard room is available, members will be able to confirm that room using their HHonors points at more than 2,900 Hilton Family hotels worldwide. “Our goal is always to make traveling easier for our guests, and No Blackout Dates is a significant way to offer our loyal members more flexibility to use their points on their schedule,” said Adam Burke, senior vice president of customer loyalty for Hilton Hotels Corporation. “Members have always considered Points & Miles a highly valuable benefit that distinguishes us from the competition, and combining this unique offering with No Blackout Dates reinforces HHonors as the world’s most rewarding and flexible hotel loyalty program.” Unlike some other hotel loyalty programs: - HHonors program has no capacity controls. All standard rooms are available for rewards, not just a limited number each night. - HHonors does not require additional points to avoid blackout dates. Some hotel programs black out reward rooms and require their customers to redeem significantly more points to bypass those blackouts. - With HHonors, there are no exceptions. Every Hilton Family hotel worldwide offers No Blackout Dates. Some competitive programs exclude selected properties. Hilton HHonors remains the only hotel loyalty program that offers guests the ability to earn both Points & Miles for the same stay at more than 2,900 hotels worldwide. Other global programs require members to choose between hotel points OR airline miles, while HHonors members enjoy the benefits of both currencies. Members also enjoy multiple ways to earn Points & Miles, offering more flexibility and a faster way to earn HHonors rewards. Hilton HHonors membership, earning of Hilton HHonors Points & Miles, and redemption of points are subject to HHonors Terms and Conditions.
