Hilton made an announcement back in April 2014 (access here) that they would be moving away from yearly award category changes and would adjust award categories “seasonally” that seems to roughly every other month/every three months based on the observations.
Hilton HHonors updated its web page for award category changes last week when I was out and about on Kyoto. These changes take effect on March 30th.
You can access Hilton’s web page for these changes here.
You have to bear in mind that Hilton’s award categories don’t mean as much as they used to because the number of points within an award category varies a lot and can be changed unannounced.
Here are the properties moving up in award category:
Here are the properties moving down in award category:
Here are new properties added to Hilton HHonors and their award categories:
Interesting that all the properties moving up are based in the US. There are 25 properties moving up by one category. There are fifteen properties requiring fever points tomorrow and two hotels are downgraded by two categories.
Hilton HHonors has introduced award category to 63 new hotels since the previous update that happened on December 30.
