In the Hilton HHonors program, properties are categorized in eight different tiers, representing different levels of accommodations. The amount of points needed for each tier ranges from 7,500 to 80,000. The breakdown by category is as follows:

  • Category 1: 7,500 points per night
  • Category 2: 12,500 points per night
  • Category 3: 25,000 points per night
  • Category 4: 30,000 points per night
  • Category 5: 35,000 points per night
  • Category 6: 40,000 points per night
  • Category 7: 50,000 points per night
  • Category 8: 50,000 – 80,000 points per night

Luxury hotels and properties in bigger cities tend to be in higher tiers, while economy hotels in less-dense areas are generally in the lower tiers. There are never any blackout dates for booking reward stays with your Hilton HHonors points. As long as there is availability at the property you wish to visit, you can use your HHonors points to book nights there. For best availability, book in advance especially if you are traveling during peak season.
