Hilton is very active on their limited time sales. Just came across this latest one when I was searching for Hilton properties in the United Arab Emirates for later this month. This promotion is available worldwide. Apparently, the set discount for Americas is 20% and the maximum elsewhere is 33%. You need to book at least seven day in advance for stays between December 8th and January 8th. Stays of two days or longer will also receive 1000 bonus Hilton HHonors points.
What is weird about Hilton’s websites is the fact that their UK website has far clearer display of properties that participate to this promotion and their prices. The US website doesn’t have this functionality. If you are planning to book a Hilton stay during this period, it does pay to visit Hilton.co.uk and can use the following direct link. http://bit.ly/tXTFGW

Each hotel has a policy addressing cancellations and/or blackout dates that may apply. Offer not valid with group bookings and cannot be combined with other offers.
