How many Hilton member’s Honors points do you need for a free stay?
The number of Hilton Honors points required for a free stay varies depending on the hotel, the dates of stay, and the room type. The cost in points can range from a few thousand points per night for a budget hotel to over 100,000 points per night for a high-end luxury hotel.
Use your Points to book a night (or an entire stay!) at any hotel, for any occasion, any time. Don’t know where to go? Plan your next getaway with Points Explorer.
For every $1 you spend on your stay, you’ll get: 10 Points (10 Base Points)
To give you a rough idea, a standard room at a mid-range Hilton hotel might require anywhere from 20,000 to 40,000 points per night, while a premium room at a luxury hotel could require 80,000 to 100,000 points per night or more. However, these are just general guidelines, and the actual point cost can vary widely based on factors like location, time of year, and availability.
Fortunately, Hilton makes it easy to search for award stays and see the point cost upfront. You can do this by logging into your Hilton Honors account on the Hilton website or app, selecting your desired hotel and dates, and then choosing the “Use Points” option to see the point cost for each available room type.
How many Hilton points do you earn per night?
The number of Hilton Honors points you earn per night depends on the hotel and the rate you book. Generally, you will earn 10 base points per dollar spent on eligible room rates and charges at most Hilton properties.
In addition to the base points, you can earn bonus points based on your elite status with Hilton and any promotions or offers that may be available. For example, Silver members can earn a 20% bonus on base points, while Diamond members can earn a 100% bonus. There are also frequent promotions that allow members to earn bonus points for stays during certain periods or at specific hotels.
Hilton also offers various credit cards that allow members to earn additional points on eligible purchases. For example, the Hilton Honors American Express Card offers 7X points per dollar spent on eligible purchases at participating Hilton properties, 5X points per dollar spent at U.S. restaurants, U.S. supermarkets, and U.S. gas stations, and 3X points per U.S. dollar spent on all other eligible purchases.
Overall, the number of Hilton member points you earn per night can vary, but most members will earn 10 base points per dollar spent, plus any bonus points or credit card points.
Do Hilton points ever expire?
Hilton member points do not expire as long as you have “eligible activity” in your account within 15 months. Eligible activity includes earning or redeeming Hilton members’ points through stays at hotels, using a Hilton Honors credit card, or other qualifying transactions.
If you don’t have any eligible activity in your Hilton members account within 15 months, your points may expire and be forfeited. However, Hilton members offer several ways to keep your points from expiring, such as:
- Stay at a Hilton hotel: Any activity related to a stay at a Hilton hotel, whether it’s earning or redeeming points, will reset the expiration date for all the points in your account.
- Use a Hilton Honors credit card: Using a Hilton Honors credit card to earn points will count as an eligible activity and extend the expiration date of your points.
- Transfer points: You can transfer points to another Hilton member, and the transfer will count as an eligible activity.
- Buy points: Purchasing Hilton member points will count as eligible activity and extend the expiration date of your points.
Overall, as long as you have some eligible activity in your Hilton Honor account within 15 months, your points will not expire.
