Earn $100 in Hotel Credit Per Night With Waldorf Astoria and Conrad — But That is Not Really New…

You may have seen articles appearing at BoardingArea recently pertaining to a credit of $100.00 per night when you book a reservation at least three days in advance for your next stay of a minimum of two consecutive nights at any of 70 participating hotel and resort properties of the Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts and Conrad Hotels & Resorts brands worldwide…

Earn $100 in Hotel Credit Per Night With Waldorf Astoria and Conrad — But That is Not Really New…

…but these promotions have been ongoing for approximately two years, as evidenced by this article which I wrote on Thursday, July 13, 2017

I also had noted that “Whoever wrote the terms and conditions left in that ‘Offer is subject to availability at participating Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts and Conrad Hotels & Resorts.’ In fact, no Conrad Hotels & Resorts properties are included in this offer.” Those hotel and resort properties have since been included in this ongoing offer.

When booking your reservation, please request the LRM Exclusive Credit Package or request Plan Code PBEXC1.

For hotel and resort properties outside of the United States, United Kingdom and Europe, the prevailing exchange rate equivalent of $100.00 in local currency — as determined by the hotel or resort property — will be applied to the folio in the value of credit earned.

Hotel credits are earned per room, per stay. For each completed night, a hotel credit of:

  • US$100.00 will be awarded for properties in the United States
  • £65.00 will be awarded for properties in the United Kingdom
  • €100.00 will be awarded for properties in Europe

Example

I decided two years ago to find out how legitimate is this offer by checking out the room rates at the Boca Raton Resort and Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort property for two nights from Wednesday, July 26, 2017 through Friday, July 28, 2017. The room rate with this special offer before receiving the credit of $100.00 per night was $324.00 per night — whereas the lowest rate I could find for the same room was $284.00 per night with various room rates.

Room rate comparison

The total room rate after the $100.00 per night hotel credit was applied to the guest folio at the time of checking out was $448.00; while the least expensive rate totaled $568.00 — which added up to a savings of $120.00. The totals did not include the mandatory resort fee of $30.00 per night nor taxes and other fees…

…but this effectively meant that at this particular resort property, you were not saving $100.00 per night as implied by the verbiage of this offer. Rather, the savings was actually $60.00 per night.

The cancellation policy at this resort property is 72 hours prior to arrival — regardless of the room rate which is selected.

Select Terms and Conditions

This offer is subject to availability at participating Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts and Conrad Hotels & Resorts properties. Advance reservations are required.

Rates are valid for single/double occupancy and exclusive of all taxes, incidental charges, gratuities and resort fees where applicable. Blackout dates, early departure fees, and length of stay, deposit and cancellation restrictions may apply and vary by hotel. For specific restrictions please contact the participating property or visit the property’s web site for the property’s specific terms & conditions. This offer is not applicable to existing reservations or group bookings, and may not be combined with other select promotions, discounts or offers. To reserve this package by telephone, please call 1-800-HILTONS if in the USA, or +800 00 266 723 if outside the USA, or view a complete list of Hilton local reservation offices.

Credit will be applied to guest folio at time of checkout. Credit will be applied towards certain hotel charges excluding room rate, corresponding taxes and select activities as determined by the property. Hotel credit is non-transferable, void upon checkout, and cannot be redeemed for cash or applied towards future stays. Additional restrictions may apply. Contact the participating property or visit the property’s web site for the property’s specific terms and conditions.

Hilton Honors membership, earning of Points & Miles when booking direct and redemption of Points are subject to Hilton Honors Terms and Conditions.

Summary

“Hotel credits are earned per room, per stay” indicates to me that you may be able to receive a hotel credit of $100.00 per room per night if you book reservations for more than one room per night — plus, this offer can be stacked with other offers.

What I do not like are offers like this one where you are required to pay more to get a discount, bonus points, or hotel credit for the same room with effectively the same benefits and amenities included. In the aforementioned example with the Boca Raton Resort and Club, A Waldorf Astoria Resort property, you would have paid $40.00 per night for that hotel credit of $100.00 per night. In my opinion, that is deceptive at best…

…but you would have still saved $60.00 per night with that specific example; so the offer would have still saved you money — but definitely do your research and compare room rates and policies to ensure that you are benefiting from this offer should you decide to participate in it.
