Note: There are technical issues using the flexible date search. There is plenty of availability in most resorts but I’m finding you have to search dates in the app or website.

Hilton Adds Almost 400 More SLH Properties

Hilton is in full swing now adding almost 400 new SLH hotels and resorts to the Hilton Honors portfolio via their partnership with SLH.

They originally launched with just 3, then added a dozen or so more but now it’s off to the races. 

As a reminder, SLH is full integrated with Hilton Honors and enjoys the programs loyalty benefits, 5th night free for Silver and higher elite members, no resort fees on award nights, and the ability to use Free Night Rewards (found on the Hilton Honors American Express Surpass® Card and Hilton Honors American Express Aspire® Card).

In general I’m finding the ability to get 1 cent or so a point on many properties, although availability is far from full loaded on these at this point.

Hilton Honors / SLH Benefits

In alignment with the rest of the program, Hilton Honors members will be able to earn and redeem Points for their SLH stays and enjoy the following benefits consistent with rest of Hilton’s luxury portfolio:

  • Member: Guaranteed Member Discount, Complimentary Standard Wi-Fi, Complimentary Late Checkout, Bottled Water/Hydration per stay, No Resort Fees on Reward Stays
  • Silver: 20% Elite Tier Bonus, 5th Standard Reward Night Free, All “Member” benefits
  • Gold: 80% Elite Tier Bonus, Complimentary Breakfast (for two guests), Space-available Upgrades, 5th Standard Reward Night Free, All “Member” benefits
  • Diamond: 100% Elite Tier Bonus, Complimentary Breakfast (for two guests), Space-available upgrades, 5th Standard Reward Night Free, All “Member” benefits
