Hilton Honors made changing on number of points required for awards at many of its hotels unannounced the other week (read more here).
Honors made a decision in the spring of 2018 not to disclose any award chart changes or when new properties are added to the program as they had done for years.

We have compiled the list below that captures 95% to 98% of the changes. There are maximum of 20 to 30 properties that are not included.
There are no hotels that would require less points than in April 2019 when we last compiled the Hilton Master Property List (new one coming on Wednesday).
This change affected total of 997 of Hilton’s close to 6,000 hotels (17% to be exact). 91% of these changes are for hotels in the United States (as 81% of all Hilton hotels are in that country). 146 hotels require 5,000 more points and 851 went up to 10,000.
Changes are not as drastic as I first feared and the maximum hasn’t changed from 95K (except Waldorf Astoria Maldives at 120K). These changes, however, slowly shift the number of points required higher step by step and at some point the 95K ceiling is gone.
The Conrad Bora Bora Nui finally moved from 80K to 90K points per night.
