Hilton HHonors sent us an update about the award category changes that will take effect on April 15, 2014, and which I already partially wrote about earlier (access here).
Hilton communicated that they will move away from yearly category changes and has introduced a web page where they will list new hotels and those that will move up / down in number of points required for a free night.
You can access this Hilton web page here.
You have to bear in mind that these Hilton HHonors award categories don’t mean as much as they used to after Hilton introduced seasonal differences last year.
Hilton can greatly devalue the program merely moving properties within the category and they have not promised to give any advance notice about these changes.
Here are the changes communicated today:
I am glad that Hilton has promised to better communicate these award category moves from now on. I hope that they will announce these “seasonal”changes as well that can greatly devalue the program without actually changing hotel award categories at all.
