Could anyone who is a Hilton HHonors member give me there opinion on rewards and such? I just obtained Silver status and figure I'll hoover around that. Are the reward stays easy to book? Decent availability? Do you feel it is worth it to stay loyal to this brand for the rewards? Thanks!

Never had any issues. Drove across the country using the rewards program last year and would call from the road and books as I got closer to a hotel.

I just joined at the end of last year. I've belonged to the Best Western Gold Crown Club for a while, but haven't really taken advantage of the points yet. I figure if I can get a free or deeply discounted room once in a while, it's probably worth being a member.

I've been a member for a long time. I have never had any trouble booking a reward room and have received many room upgrades without asking.

The room upgrades rock. One time we got a suite for the same price as a regular room. That was nice. My husband has this program and he uses it all the time when he travels for work. We have never had any problems with it.

I agree. I use it for work too. It works out well because work pays for those stays and I get the benefits.

Thanks for the responses! Does anyone know what you need to book a reward stay? Does it go by number of points or total stays completed?

Default love Hilton HHonors program

Regarding reward stays - Hotels are categorized based on # of points required for a reward stay at that particular hotel. Some hotels require 7,500 points ("opportunity" category), Cat 1 requires 10,000 points, Cat 2 is 20,000 points, Cat 3 is 25,000 points, etc. You can search hotels filtered by state and category on HH website.

I love the Hilton HHonors program and agree with previous posts re gotta love the free upgrades. That happened just this past weekend when the hotel sold out and bumped my reservation up to a suite. I feel it is worth it to stay loyal to this brand. I love the Double Dip program with the various ways to earn airline miles along with hotel points. I receive special offers for earning extra points via mail and email and those are worth taking advantage of, too.

I belong to many hotel loyalty programs because IMO it is worth it to belong to each and every one of them, even if your stay is only occasional.
