Black Family Using Hotel Pool Harassed By Hampton Inn By Hilton Employee


Another Hilton affiliated hotel is in hot water after a white employee called police when a black family was using the pool.

Hilton has had quite a bit of racial issues with black guests as of late. An African-American guest was thrown out of a hotel in Portland after chatting with his mother on a cellphone (read more here) in the lobby, and locals were not welcomed at another property (read more here).

What Do Maids Do? Case Hampton Inn


This YouTube video has received quite a bit of publicity since the Hampton Inn guest uploaded it on YouTube on November 8, 2014.

On the video, you can see the maid go through pretty much all the stuff that the guest has but she doesn’t appear to be stealing anything.

Get 500 Free Hilton HHonors Points by Liking Hampton Inn on Facebook


Hilton HHonors is having a drive to get more likes to their Hampton Inn Facebook page.


1. You need to like Hampton Inn on their Facebook page

2. You have to watch a video

3. Give the app permission to access your info.


You don’t actually have to watch the video and you can click not to post it on your Facebook wall. That’s what I just did.


According to the app it can access quite a bit of information about you and your friends. You have to consider if this is worth 500 Hilton HHonors points. At least, I would disallow the app after you have inputted your info to get the points.


Easy 500 points but you have to surrender quite a bit of your and your friends info.

Hilton HHonors Is Now Sending Emails Regarding The Enhanced Diamond Benefits

It took some time for Hilton to start sending emails about the new Diamond member benefits that started on January 18th. Emails are just going out so no need to worry if you haven’t received yours. You can visit the Hilton’s page devoted to these changes following this link.


Here is the recap of the changes for Diamond members:

1. There are no changes for Diamond members staying at Embassy Suites, Hilton Garden Inn’s, Hampton Inn & Suites, Homewood Suites, Home2 Suites, and Hilton Grand Vacation Locations.

2. Previously Diamond member had to choose between the MyWay 1000 extra bonus points in lieu for breakfast/upgrade. This is no longer the case. You will automatically receive the upgrade + breakfast + 1000 bonus points at Waldorf Astoria (no breakfast benefit), Conrad, DoubleTree, and Hilton hotels.

3. Now the upgrade pool also includes SUITES that before were excluded. This applies for Waldorf Astoria, Conrad, DoubleTree and Hilton properties. At the same time the upgraded rooms are no longer just executive rooms but view and other lower category rooms as well.

4. Executive Lounge access is no a guaranteed benefit of Diamond status.

We’ll need to see how these changes work through all the hotels. Personally I am most excited about the possible suite upgrades. At least it is now explicitly stated that suites are fair game for Diamond members.
