Points or Miles Earned Per Stay

  • Do not enter commas; commas are treated as decimal points.





  • Instructions: Your Stay and Elite Status

    Hilton Hotel Brand: Select the Hilton brand for your stay. You can only select one brand at a time. All 14 of Hilton’s hotel brands are included in the calculator: Canopy, Conrad, Curio Collection, DoubleTree, Embassy Suites, Hampton Inn, Hilton, Hilton Garden Inn, Hilton Grand Vacations, Home2 Suites, Homewood Suites, Tapestry Collection, Tru, and Waldorf Astoria.

    # of Nights: Select the number of nights for your stay, from 1 to 30 nights.

    Room Rate: Enter the nightly room rate for your room, including any mandatory resort fees but excluding taxes. If you are staying multiple days and your room rate changes during your stay, use the average room rate across all of the nights of your stay as your room rate. For example, if you are staying three nights with nightly rates of $170, $185, and $203, you would enter your average room rate of “$186” as your room rate in the calculator. If you are using a “Points & Money rate,” you should only enter the money portion in this field. For example, if you are staying one night with a room rate of $120 + 30,000 Honors points, enter only the money portion, $120, in the field.

    Taxes: Enter the taxes for your room for your entire stay. You do not earn Hilton Honors points directly on lodging taxes paid, but you will earn bonus Hilton Honors points if you use a co-branded American Express or Citi Hilton credit card to pay for your stay, since the credit card issuers will issue you bonus Hilton Honors points for all spending at Hilton brands, including taxes.

    Other Eligible Folio Charges: Enter the total (and not nightly) cost of anticipated “eligible folio charges” from your stay other than your room rate. Eligible charges include food and beverage, telephone, laundry, pay-per-view movies, entertainment and recreational facilities, and other incidental charges…all which must be posted to your room folio in order to be points-earning eligible. You cannot incur eligible folio charges at Hampton, Home2 Suites, Homewood Suites, or Tru; only your room rate is eligible for earning points at these brands. The calculator automatically tracks whether or not your folio charges are eligible, based on hotel brand, when calculating how many points you will earn.

    Hilton Honors Elite Status: Select your elite status in the Hilton Honors program at the time of your stay. Basic non-elite membership in the Hilton Honors program is called “Blue.” Blue members should select “None” as their elite status tier.

    Bonus Miles or Points: In addition to the base Hilton Honors points you earn during your stay, you can earn either (a) partner miles or points or (b) 5 bonus Hilton Honors points per dollar in eligible charges (2.5 bonus points at Home2 Suites and Tru). If you are earning bonus Hilton points, also known as “Points & Points,” select “Hilton” for this field. If you are earning bonus partner miles, also known as “Points & Miles,” select the appropriate mileage partner for this field. You can select your “Double Dip” earning style in your Hilton Honors account profile before your stay.

    MyWay Benefit Selection: Gold and Diamond elite members can choose a welcome amenity of either additional bonus “Points” or “Food” — breakfast, at brands that do not offer free breakfast to all guests, or snacks and water/beverages — dependent on the hotel brand and your “MyWay” benefit selection. In some instances, Diamond members may receive both the food and the bonus points at some brands; in these instances, the calculator will automatically add the bonus points even if you select “food” or “other.” Waldorf Astoria guests can select among other amenities. If you select “Silver” or “None” as your elite status, your welcome amenity selection does not affect your point calculations.

    Instructions: Seasonal Promotions

    Go More, Get More: From May 1, 2017 through August 31, 2017, guests (other than Diamond members) who have registered for this promotion will receive 2x base points for their stay (20 points per dollar in eligible charges…double the usual rate). Diamond members receive 3x base points (30 points per dollar in eligible charges…triple the usual rate). If you have registered for this promotion and your stay ends within the promotional time period, select “Yes.”

    Mobile App Booking: From February 1, 2017 through December 31, 2017, guests who booked their reservation through the Hilton Honors iOS or Android mobile apps will receive a bonus 500 points per stay. You can receive this bonus on award stays, provided your incur an eligible folio charge. If you registered for this promotion, booked your reservation through the mobile app, and your stay ends within the promotional time period, select “Yes.”

    Other Promotions: Use this field to enter any additional one-off bonus points you will receive for your stay that are otherwise not reflected elsewhere in the calculator.

    Instructions: Co-Branded Credit Card

    Using Co-Branded Credit Card: If you are paying with a co-branded American Express Hilton Honors Surpass (12x points for spending at Hilton brands), American Express Hilton Honors (7x points for spending at Hilton brands), Citi Hilton Honors Reserve (10x points for spending at Hilton brands), or Citi Hilton Honors (6x points for spending at Hilton brands), you receive bonus points that will post to your Hilton Honors account when your co-branded credit card account statement posts. The calculator assumes you are using U.S. versions of these co-branded credit cards.

    American Express also runs an ongoing promotion where you receive an additional 500 bonus points per stay when you book and pay for your stay with your co-branded AMEX card; award stays will trigger the bonus, provided you incur an eligible folio charge.

    Details: Point Earning Summary

    Total Honors Points Earned: This figure equals the total number of Hilton Honors points that the calculator estimates you will earn for your stay based on the input you provided. The Points Earning Details section at the end of the calculator provides a breakout of how this figure was calculated.

    Approximate Value of Points: This figures equals the estimated cash value of the total Hilton Honors points the calculator estimates you will earn for your stay. The calculator uses Real World Machine’s latest value for one Hilton Honors point.

    Honors Points Earning Rate: This figure represents how many Hilton Honors you will earn per dollar spent on your room rate and eligible folio charges for your stay. Fixed bonuses that do not vary based on the amount you spend (e.g., 500 bonus points per stay for using co-branded American Express credit card) are factored into the calculation. Taxes and ineligible folio spending (i.e., non-room-rate folio spending at brands that do not award Honors base points for folio spending) are only factored into the calculation if you are using a co-branded credit card.

    Partner Miles Earned: This figure equals the total number of partner airline, train, or rewards program points or miles that the calculator estimates you will earn for your stay for your selected mileage partner. You only earn partner miles if you choose to forego earning a bonus 5x Hilton points. Partner miles earnings at certain Hilton brands, especially Home2 Suites, may be capped per stay. You cannot earn any partner miles with some Hilton brands at a small number of mileage partners (none of which are based in the United States). If your partner miles earnings are restricted or otherwise capped, the calculator will display a “miles restricted” message and adjust your estimated earnings accordingly.

    Hilton Honors often offers bonus partner miles promotions for certain travel partners like British Airways and Lufthansa. Check out the Current Bonus Point Promotions post for details. Given the variability, the calculator does not include special bonus partner miles promotions in calculations, only the regular partner miles rate.
