Hilton has been running its first points sale of the new decade for well over a month and, as we have mostly come to expect, there has been a 100% bonus on offer on all purchases of 10,000 points or more. This offer expires tomorrow night so you don't have long to lock in the best rate that we generally see Hilton offer if you're in need of points to top up an account.
In August last year, Marriott announced a couple of significant changes to the way its Points Advance reservations work and when these changes came into effect in September, I pointed out that the Bonvoy program's systems appeared to be incapable of dealing with one of these changes correctly. I also pointed out that I thought I could see how Marriott's solution to this system flaw may actually benefit some guests....and I was right.
Over the past couple of days, I've shown how Bonvoy members can locate free night certificates in their accounts and how they can use those certificates to book single night stays. In this post, I take a look at how a Marriott free night certificate can be incorporated into a multi-night booking.
In a post yesterday I showed how Bonvoy members can locate their free night certificates in the desktop site and the Bonvoy mobile app, and today I'm going to go through the simple process of making a single night reservation with a Marriott Bonvoy free night certificate.
Following on from the hotel categories announcement earlier, Hyatt has also announced that a further 48 Small Luxury Hotels properties will be joining the World of Hyatt with immediate effect. The latest additions now mean that over 350 SLH properties are now participating in the world of Hyatt and more are almost certainly on the way.
At the beginning of December Hyatt announced that it would be introducing peak, standard, and off-peak award pricing from March this year but the hotelier didn't let us know exactly when those changes would be introduced or if hotels would also be moving categories...but now we know.

Hyatt has just announced its first major promotion of 2020 and with it it's offering World of Hyatt members double points at participating properties worldwide and it's offering holders of its two co-branded credit cards the chance to earn yet more bonus points on select stays.
Marriott Bonvoy has released details of all its properties that are moving categories in a few weeks' time and if there was anyone left out there who still viewed Bonvoy as a great rewards program, even they are going to have to now concede that Bonvoy is a dumpster fire that just had gas added to the flames.
The first IHG Rewards promotion of 2020 will start from 15 February 2020 and the headline that IHG is pushing is one that suggests that members will be able to earn "up to 4x bonus points" for stays made through 15 May...but that really doesn't tell the whole story. It's more complicated than that.
