Hilton HHonors has had very popular MVP rate for years that offers 20% off at participating properties in the Americas (Canada, United States, Brazil, Mexico etc.), Hawaii and the Caribbean while being eligible for all the status benefits and stay/night credits + points.
The rate rules used to only require Hilton HHonors number to be eligible to use it. Some properties now require the person using the rate to have sport affiliation (of any kind).
Note that you can only book this rate online using the link above. Hilton HHonors phone representatives or properties are not allowed to offer this directly.
Here are the rate rules:
There are two separate rate rules that are attached to this rate plan depending of the hotel.
One requiring a sports affiliation
and another one only requiring being a Hilton HHonors member.
If you book your stay at a property that requires one and you don’t have any sport affiliation, you can always become a member of the US Golf Association for $10 (access here).
Here are some rate displays for a midweek stay in November 2016:
Hilton Hawaiian Village
Embassy Suite San Juan
DoubleTree Suites New York Times Square
Hampton Inn Miami South Beach
Hampton Inn Mexico City – Centro Historico
Hilton Barra – Rio de Janeiro
The MVP rate tends to be the lowest (even lower than the AAA) and doesn’t require advance purchase. You can even book it on the day of arrival if available.
If you use the rate plan a lot, just sign up for some sport affiliation such as the Golf one for $10 that I mentioned above.
