Hilton APAC flash sale
This is pretty late into the sale already, plus no one visits this blog to be informed about such offers, so thought I’d just catalogue my savings (spending) for personal reference. =)
Hilton Tokyo Odaiba 4n @ 59,661 JPY (approx. S$180 per night, with further 25% reduction from Citi Prestige 4th night free)
Conrad Bangkok 2n @ 7,344.48THB (approx. S$140 per night)
So I consider myself a bit of a travel hacker, and have managed to get comped to HHonors Diamond this year through a fortuitous combination of complimentary status from my old Platinum Card (now cancelled) as well as an extremely generous status match being offered at the end of last year. The main advantage of Diamond over Gold (which I’d previously comped through a Visa Infinite offer) is that lounge access is guaranteed, regardless of actual room upgrade awarded – though I’ve had pretty good luck with stays as a Gold member thus far, I thought I should make better use of my Diamond status before it expires next March.
So I’ve got Tokyo and Bangkok lined up – and it’s actually a repeat visit to Conrad Bangkok (I quite enjoyed my stay there over the Easter weekend). At this point, I probably have a working trip to the UK in June as well – looking forward to making good use of the Diamond status then!
