Hilton Europe Flash Sale - Ends March 13th



This is my first time sensitive post, but it was a decent enough deal that I thought I should post it just in case someone stumbles across it.

Hilton is offering up to 35% off on hotels across Europe. The rate is prepaid and non-refundable and is good for stays from March 11th - July 3rd 2016. You must book by March 13th.

We don't normally stay with Hilton, but we recently took advantage of the status match offer they were running and we were instantly matched to Hilton Diamond through 2016. Even with Diamond status I had not had a reason to move any of our stays over from Hyatt. However, on our next big trip we are stopping over in London for 1 night before we catch a cruise ship from Southampton. We had a great deal on a Suite at the Andaz in London, but we are traveling with a toddler this time and the logistics of getting from the airport to the hotel with all our bags and then headed back in the opposite direction to get to the cruise the next day we decided it would be better to stay by the airport.

At London Heathrow, there is only 1 hotel that is directly connected to the terminals and that happens to be the Hilton at Terminal 4. I booked a refundable rate of  ‎£125 ( ~$178 ouch!), but I knew it would be far less expensive than the travel back and forth to the city with all our stuff and a baby!

Luckily I caught on to this flash sale last night and I immediately booked a new room at only ‎£90 (~$128). As Hilton Diamond members we will have guaranteed access to their club lounge for breakfast and evening snacks as well as an upgrade based on availability, which looks to be pretty open.



Looking at the website, the hotels on the list the discount varies a lot, but it came out to a 28% discount over the already discounted HHonors rate we had booked. The only downside is that it is prepaid, but with our travel plans that was not an issue and is just one less thing to worry about when we get there.

I look forward to sharing more about this trip, but I still have quite a few posts to catch up on from Europe, Alaska, and Hawaii.
