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)!
With more than 60 participating properties, you will earn a S$50 statement credit when you charge at least S$300 at a participating hotel or resort per property - you could essentially earn over S$1,800 in statement credit if you stay once at every property! Obviously you will also have to book direct to take advantage of this amazing offer.
Do I have to register for this promotion?
Absolutely! The link is provided above - you will have to register PRIOR to staying in order for the bonus statement credits to post. Do remember to register ASAP as participation is only limited to the first 15,000 Cards to register.
What are the Participating Properties?
As mentioned earlier on, there are over 60 properties and you may find the full list HERE but they include the Conrad Centennial Singapore, Hilton Singapore, Conrad Bangkok and the Hilton Melbourne South Wharf.
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!
For this stay, I took advantage of the previous Discover Asia sale (up to 30% off) and saved quite a bit on the Centennial Suite reservation. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the location of the Conrad Centennial Singapore, it is located next to Millenia Walk and if you are coming by MRT, the closest stop would be Promenade on the Circle Line.

The Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Johor Bahru is located just minutes away after clearing the Woodlands Checkpoint. In fact, due to its proximity, it is very possible for you visit even if you are not driving - simply take a bus into Johor Bahru and then flag a taxi from there (less than RM5 on meter) or if you are feeling a little adventurous, take a walk! Check out my review of the Executive Room here!
One of the best things about being in Singapore is that you are always a short flight or drive away from another country. I decided to check out one of the latest Hilton properties in the region which is just a short drive away from Singapore (not factoring in the traffic congestion which may happen of course) - the Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Johor Bahru. Check out the amazing One-Bedroom Suite here!
The Conrad Suite that I stayed in measures 110sqm (approximately 1200 sqft for all you imperial fans) in size, with a separate dining room, living room, bedroom, dressing room, bathroom and a balcony. While the suite adopted a clean and contemporary design, the woody and earthly tones helped to assimilate this private haven into the lush green surroundings of the Conrad Bali Suites wing.

Across the Yarra River and just a short walk away from the famous Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex is the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Center. Adjacent to this is a stylish and and beautifully designed Category 8 property from Hilton - the Hilton Melbourne South Wharf. If you have to be at the MCEC for a conference, this hotel should be your accommodation of choice. If you're interested in staying in an alternative location as opposed to the city, this hotel should also be on your list.
Located in the Central Business District of Bangkok, the Conrad Bangkok was voted as the Best Luxury City Hotel in Thailand at the 2013 World Luxury Hotel Awards. With 22 highly versatile meeting rooms, the property was also voted as the Best Convention Hotel in Thailand at the 2013 International Hotel Awards. The level of service at the Conrad Bangkok is top-notch. Every thing here works like clockwork.
I stayed at the Hilton Singapore over the past weekend to enjoy some personal space and time away from the hectic daily life. I also made a deliberate attempt to mute all work-related email notifications to ensure that I do not get tempted to do what I should not. While I have covered this hotel in a previous review, I thought this stay was pretty exceptional so it deserved another review. Besides, I stayed in a different room type this time and thought I might cover more aspects of the hotel.
