Arizona Biltmore Waldorf Astoria Resorts in Phoenix has a great deal through Amex Fine Hotels & Resorts (FHR) for the summer months.
Amex FHR rates that are Hilton Honors qualifying (stays/nights/points/elite benefits) come with a special $250 property credit on top of the usual $100 for a total of $350. The offer is valid for stays through October 5, 2022.

Note that you must book this hotel through the Amex FHR website to be eligible for the $100 + $250 credits.
Hilton Honors Gold & Diamond members are eligible for an additional F&B credit of $50 per day (total for 2). The Amex FHR rate includes breakfast for two.
There is a note that this offer includes an additional credit of $250.
The rate rules are unambiguous:
Receive a US$250 property credit when booking a stay of at least 1 night at Arizona Biltmore, A Waldorf Astoria Resort. To take advantage of this offer, book from 15MAY22 through 04OCT22 for hotel stays from 16MAY22 and completed by 05OCT22. In addition, enjoy these valuable benefits with each Fine Hotels + Resorts® booking: 12pm check-in, when available, Room upgrade upon arrival, when available (certain room categories are not eligible for upgrade), Daily breakfast for two people, Complimentary Wi-Fi, Guaranteed 4pm late checkout, and US$100 Food and beverage credit to be used during your stay
You can book the same rate directly with Hilton but without the $350 credit.
There are occasional deals under Amex FHR for hotels that include extra benefits on top of the usual ones, as is the case here.
Then there is always the question of how much should one value a $350 on-property credit?
If you would have wined and dined at the property anyway, it may be worth that amount for you, but I tend to discount these by 50% when comparing different rates and properties.
Do you always find the best prices and deals by booking direct? The answer is a definite no despite what these businesses try to convey.
