Hilton Honors launched earlier this month their popular Winter Weekends sale for up to 25% off of stays through December 31, 2018, in Europe, Middle East and Africa.
This really is a weekend sale (not just a winter one) and many hotels in Europe have midweek availability between December 9 and January 9, 2018 due to lower occupancy around the holidays.
Here are some rate displays for weekend night in February:
Hilton Helsinki Strand
The Waldorf Hilton
Hilton Dubai Creek
Hilton Northolme Resort & Spa
Hilton Cape Town
Here are destination tiles that Hilton has up on its website:
Turns out that I already booked and consumed one of these Winter Sale-rates for a Monday stay on November 13th in Budapest and it was by far the lowest one available.
The hotel had this rate plan loaded contrary to what the T&Cs say about the weekday availability only in December. I guess that it is up to individual hotels when they have this rate plan activated.
It makes sense to check what rate hotels have and book if the rates are good and your plans firm.
Here are the terms and conditions of this promotion:
