I just received the following from Hilton Honors:
We've added some exciting new benefits to the Hilton HHonors™ program that we want you to be aware of. Gold and Diamond members now receive new on-property benefits at Conrad® Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Hotels & Resorts and DoubleTree by Hilton™, including:
• Room upgrades at check-in when space is available
• Daily complimentary continental breakfast
• 1,000 Bonus Points per stay
I got the same email, a frustrating point to me besides Marriott not following suit. Will be the lack of response from Marriott Representatives on this post. This is the kind of post that just lingers for months and the community manager turns a blind eye! Or should I say refrains from responding
Forgive my ignorance, but what's the big deal? As a Marriott Platinum Member, you get free upgrades when available, free continental breakfast (a lot of times I get the full breakfast for free) and 500 points as a welcome gift if you're staying at a Marriott. It's roughly the same deal. Of course, I'd want another 500 points, but it's not a deal breaker.
