When I first looked at Hilton Experiences quite a while ago, I wasn’t super impressed. It seemed, at the time, to be a range of things that you could buy anyway – but use points at about half a cent each. They offered that for concert tickets (and still do), for example.

I was used to the old SPG Moments, headed up by industry vet Brandi Sperling-Reiser, which really knocked the ball out of the park with one-of-a-kind experiences that money couldn’t buy.

But I recently gave Hilton Experiences a fresh look and it turns out they’ve moved quite a bit in that same direction. Meaning that they are offering quite a large number of experiences that “money can’t buy” and I love that.

Here are a few examples on the site right now. For clarity, most of these are not one on one experiences, but small groups (~50 people total is what I’m mostly seeing).

Luke Bryan Acoustic Session, Q&A + Tickets to Vegas Show

This experience for two (2) includes:
– Access to an exclusive pre-show acoustic performance and Q&A session with Luke Bryan
– Tickets to Luke Bryan’s residency show at Resorts World Theatre

This one sold out, but went for 100,000 Hilton Honors points, which I’d equate to roughly $500. But you couldn’t buy it for $500…

Here’s another one:

Play Topgolf with Sam Hunt + See Him Perform Live in Phoenix

This experience for two (2) includes:
– Topgolf experience with Sam Hunt
– Meet & greet photo opportunity with Sam Hunt
– Tickets to see Sam Hunt perform at Chase Field

This also went for 100,000 points. If you’re a big Sam Hunt fan, this is probably quite appealing to you and may well be a better use of your points than a day or two at a Hilton Hotel.

Wine Tasting with Dave Matthews + Concert

Dave Matthews fan? Brings back college days for me… Well if you’re a fan, you’d find this Meet and Greet pretty cool. Once again, it was sold for 100,000 points.

This experience for two (2) includes:

  • Pre-show wine tasting experience with Dave Matthews
  • Meet & greet photo opportunity with Dave Matthews
  • Tickets to the Dave Matthews Band concert

Some of these are fixed price and some are auctions, just like the old Moments were.

A few more interesting ones are:

Trans-Siberian Orchestra Concert + Signed Guitar

This experience for two (2) includes:
– Two (2) concert tickets in the top standard price point available
– One (1) guitar autographed by Trans-Siberian Orchestra

Tickets to Broadway Hit SIX with Post-Show Talk Back

This experience for two (2) includes:

  • Premium Orchestra Seats for SIX on Friday, November 18th at 8pm
  • Post-show talk back with members of the famed cast

Christmas Spectacular Starring The Radio City Rockettes (With all sorts of extras)

This experience for four (4) includes:
– Premium orchestra tickets to the Christmas Spectacular on December 10th, 2022
– Access to a pre-performance reception from 2-4pm, inclusive of buffet and open bar
– Access to post-show meet & greet with two Rockettes
– Private Radio City Music Hall entrance access
– Personal Christmas Concierge to escort you and your guests
– Christmas Spectacular gift bag for each guest
– One (1) night stay in a one-bedroom suite at the Conrad New York Midtown, December 10th – 11th, 2022

They also have a variety of experiences in destinations like the Maldives, if you happen to be going already.

Anyway, this is not a sponsored post or anything – but I wanted to share that this site is something to keep an eye on if you’ve got a large stack of Hilton points.
