Hilton to Offer Daily Food and Beverage Credit For 2021 For Diamond and Gold Elite Members

An official announcement from Hilton has revealed that Hilton Honors members who have earned Diamond or Gold elite status will receive a daily credit for food and beverages for the remainder of 2021 at all luxury hotel and resort properties, full-service hotel and resort properties, lifestyle hotel and resort properties, and Hilton Garden Inn hotel properties in the United States.

The following announcement is verbatim from an e-mail message I received from one of my official contacts at Hilton:

As restrictions loosen and vaccination rates increase, once-grounded travelers are jumping at the chance to reconnect with loved ones and hit the road (or air) again. As Hilton welcomes guests back this summer, Hilton Honors is excited to launch a new Daily Food & Beverage Credit for Elite members. Please see information below.

  • Showcasing its commitment to providing more flexibility, value and choice for its more than 115 million members, Hilton Honors is launching a Daily Food & Beverage Credit for Gold and Diamond members beginning in early July through the end of 2021, at all luxury, full-service, lifestyle, and Hilton Garden Inn properties in the U.S.
    • These brand categories include Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, LXR Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Canopy by Hilton, Signia by Hilton, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Curio Collection by Hilton, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, DoubleTree by Hilton and Motto by Hilton.
  • Hilton Honors Gold and Diamond members can utilize the daily credit towards food or beverage purchases any time of day, replacing the existing Elite Status benefit of complimentary Continental Breakfast.
    The Daily F&B Credit will range in value depending on the brand and location.
  • We’ll share additional details in the coming weeks, but wanted to provide a preview in the meantime should you be interested in sharing with your readers.

Summary

Many questions still need to be answered; and I have passed them on to my official contact at Hilton — so more information is to come when it is available…

…but my experience suggests that the breakfast benefits at Hilton Honors hotel and resort properties in the United States are incomparable to those at hotel and resort properties outside of the United States, which are typically significantly better — and they will not be affected by this announcement, which is only in effect for the remainder of 2021.

In fact — come to think of it — the daily food and beverage credit for the aforementioned hotel and resort properties within the United States might actually be an improvement overall…
