I submitted a Best Price Guarantee claim for my upcoming trip in Australia last month and I received the following confirmation:
We are pleased to confirm that we have now approved your claim. I have lowered the rate on your reservation to match the rate found in addition to another reduction of $50 USD equivalent amount. The current new rate per night after the adjustment is 237.69 AUD before applicable local charges. A new email of confirmation has been sent to you.
After logging in to my Hilton HHonors account, I noticed that my total room rate for the period was adjusted from AUD 2,200 to approximately AUD 1,902 (as mentioned in the email). However, upon logging in today, I realised that my room rate for the Australian property has been adjusted upwards and back to what it was before! I've emailed the Guest Assistance Specialist to check on it and will definitely update on the matter - this should not be happening! Does anyone out there have similar experiences?
I wrote about the quiet opening of the Hilton Garden Inn Singapore Serangoon previously and it seems like the hotel has started to take reservations from 01 August 2017. Information about the Hilton Garden Inn Singapore Serangoon is still pretty scarce at the moment but here's what we know about the room rates and room types for now - this is Singapore's cheapest Hilton property so it is perfect for weekend mattress runs!
While checking out room rates this evening on the Hilton HHonors app, I noticed something a little different - the first result is the Hilton Garden Inn Serangoon which is apparently coming soon (first Hong Kong, now us?!). I did not actually know (assuming this is right) that there is a Hilton Garden Inn opening in Singapore (this could be great news for us Hilton HHonors members) and with a little digging, I found a little more proof to back this speculation.
Hilton is currently running a sale of up to 35% off for all participating Hilton hotels in Asia-Pacific. All reservations have to be made before 20 January 2017 and stays can be as far out as 31 December 2017.
Hilton has just announced the grand opening of the first and only internationally-branded resort in the picturesque region of Shangrao. The Hilton Sanqingshan Resort offers panoramic views of the Chinese National AAAAA-rated tourist region (the highest ranking available) with 372 beautifully-appointed rooms and suites with facilities that provide for guests wanting to explore the nearby Sanqing mountains. The Hilton Sanqingshan Resort is also within easy reach of nearby attractions including the city of Jingdezhen and Huangshan and Wuyishan mountains.
After 22 years of absence, the 'Hilton' brand is returning to Hong Kong with the opening of a mid-priced Hilton Garden Inn later this month in Mongkok. The Hilton Garden Inn Hong Kong Mongkok will join the upscale Conrad Hotel (located in Admiralty) to become the second hotel to be under the Hilton Hotels and Resort group in Hong Kong.
Hilton Hotels & Resorts' latest property in Bali has just opened up in the prestigious Nusa Dua area. The Hilton Bali Resort is located atop a 40m cliff in the southern peninsula with direct access to one of the most picturesque beaches on the island. It is located near the 18-hole Bali National Golf Course and various water sports centers.
Located along the famous Orchard Road, the Hilton Singapore is one of the first few hotels that I have visited in Singapore when I relocated back in 2013 - I also revisited the property in 2014 as a Hilton HHonors Gold Member. During my latest visit this month in October 2016, I checked into the Hilton Singapore once again as a Hilton HHonors Diamond Member and even though I booked my stay via an OTA, I was given the benefits for being a Diamond Member (something that is no longer required by the program).
When I visited Melbourne In 2014, I stayed two nights in an Executive Room at the Hilton Melbourne South Wharf and seriously fell in love with it - the view was amazing, the rooms were beautiful and modern but more importantly, that lounge was just perfect to take in the sights. I returned this year in 2016 to check out the amazing Relaxation Suite which I dare say is the most beautiful suite in South Wharf, Melbourne!
The beautiful Opus Bar & Grill located inside the Hilton Singapore is ramping up the steak offerings with a carefully curated selection of U.S. prime grade cuts from Greater Omaha in USA. This is one of the best places in Singapore for a charcoal-grilled steak especially when you consider the quality and value ratio (they do have some amazing promotions too like free-flowing wine for 2 hours).
There are now even more reasons to stay at Hilton! Between 01 August 2016 and 31 January 2017, stay at a participating Hilton property and pay with an eligible American Express card and you will get a S$50 statement credit when you spend at least S$300 - this includes spending on accommodation, food and beverages as well as other incidentals during your stay (do note that you will have to charge them to the room though). This offer is valid at every participating hotel so you can benefit from the S$50 statement credit each time you stay somewhere different (and satisfy the promotional conditions)!
