Hilton Honors, Hilton Hotels’ loyalty program has made some changes to the program yesterday. These changes are small, but they are certainly an improvement.

Hilton Honors Loyalty Program Changes

Hilton is making it easier to earn more points for your hotel related activities, including removing caps, making it easier to earn more from each stay. They are also making the rules more uniform across their many Hilton brands. The changes they are implementing are overall positive for extended points, point earnings for incidentals, and the number of rooms. The only downside is the earnings for Hilton or hotel employees. The changes are in effect from January 9, 2020.

Some more important changes that were made:

  • Points Expiry Change

Points now expire 15 months after inactivity. They previously expired after 12 months of inactivity.

  • Earn more points from more rooms

Starting January 9th, 2020, Hilton Honors will allow each member to earn points from up to four rooms at a time. Previously they allowed members to earn points from up to two rooms. Keep in mind that elite members will receive tier benefits only for the member + 1 regardless of the number of rooms.

  • Maximum number of base points removed

Previously Hilton limited you to earning 100,000 base points per stay at Canopy, Curio, Tapestry, Tru, Homewood Suites, Home2 Suites, and Waldorf Astoria Jeddah. With the new changes, there is no longer a maximum spend that can earn points.

  • Earn points for incidental spending at all brands

Members can now earn points for incidental spent at Hampton, Tru, Homewood Suites, and Home2 Suites. Previously Hilton only let you earn points on the room rate for stays at Hampton Inn by Hilton, Tru by Hilton, Home2 Suites by Hilton, and Homewood Suites by Hilton, any incidental spending wasn’t eligible to earn points.

  • Hilton Employee Points Earning

This is the only downside to the changes made, Hilton or hotel employees are not eligible to earn points when traveling for business on behalf of the chain or the hotel.
