The Conrad London St James is arguably Hilton's best property in London, but it's a property I had never visited until recently as I usually prefer to make the most of the fantastic weekend deals that are often on offer at the London Marriott Canary Wharf. On this occasion, Joanna and I were looking for a change of scenery and with the Conrad selling award nights at a very reasonable price, it was easy to decide to see what the property has to offer.
Various Conrad Hotels around the world are currently promoting deals and offers with a view to tempting guests back into their properties so, if you're considering making a booking, it's worth checking these out before you make any firm plans. Keep in mind that these deals are not available at all Conrad properties so make sure you pay close attention to the participating locations lists in the post below.
Just as we saw in the Great Recession it looks like major corporations are starting to turn to their financial partners to help with any liquidity problems that they may have and, this time around, it looks like Hilton is first to the well with a 1 billion dollar cash injection from American Express.
Back on 12 March Hilton made a customer-friendly change to its change/cancellation fee policy when, amongst other things, it added all the EU countries to the list of destinations where change and cancellation fees are being waived and where refunds are being offered. As of yesterday, that policy got even better.
Earlier today I wrote about IHG Rewards taking the decision to lower its requirements for earning elite status in 2020 in the face of the travel chaos that's engulfing the world and now Hilton has stepped up with its own set of changes to help alleviate its guests' concerns.
American Express has been very generous with the number off Hilton offers it has been publishing since the start of the year and the procession of offers continued earlier today when two new Amex Hilton offers started appearing in targeted cardholder accounts.
In the middle of last month, Amex started targeting cardholders for bonus Membership Rewards points on select properties/brands in the Hilton portfolio and now, while those original offers are still live, two more Hilton offers have appeared in targeted accounts.
The Amex offers that every cardholder has access to can be a great way to save some money and to recoup some of the annual fees you may have paid and right now Amex is offering a number of deals for Hilton bookings through to the end of March.
Right now there are at least five good Hilton Amex offers available to targeted cardholders and with the holiday season rapidly approaching (a time when a lot of people take trips) and four of the five deals expiring at the end of the year, I thought I'd remind readers of what these offers look like.
Hot on the heels of a truly fantastic offer for travel on Air France American Express is now targeting some of its cardholders for a very nice deal at select Waldorf Astoria and Conrad properties around the world.
