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?

When I traveled from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo back in May, I spent a week at the Hyatt Regency Tokyo (which I really liked!) before moving over to the Hilton Tokyo which is located just across the road. Check out my review of the huge King Tower Suite Executive at the Hilton Tokyo where you will also get to enjoy evening cocktails and a great Japanese breakfast!
I spent two weeks in Florida back in April where I booked myself on a flight from Dubai to New York on Emirates Business Class and then from New York to Tampa on Delta Air Lines First Class. After spending a week at The Westin Tampa Waterside, I drove down to Orlando where I was required to attend a major convention (for work) and stayed at the Hilton Orlando. Since the event was going to be held at the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), we opted to stay at the Hilton Orlando this time since there are regular buses that will take us there in the morning. Read my review of a Pool View Room here!

When I visited the Conrad Tokyo back in 2016, I was completely won over by not only the design of the hotel but the quality of food as well. My lunch at the property's award-winning Japanese restaurant, Kazahana, remains to be one of the most memorable dining experiences that I have had in Tokyo. As such, when I revisited Tokyo back in February 2018, I decided to spend a couple of nights here and since I have stayed in an Executive Room with Bay View previously, I opted for the Executive Suite Bay View this time instead.

The Hilton Auckland is one of my most anticipated hotel stays last year after visiting it briefly back in 2015 for a business meeting. I stayed in a Deluxe Harbour View Room at the Hilton Auckland as a Hilton Honors Diamond member and really enjoyed my stay there. Read more now!
