Hi

i am talking the family for a holiday in Phuket staying at the Hilton Arcadia. Half way through I have to go to Bangkok for two nights for work meetings. Can I book a concurrent stay at a hilton properly using my hhonors account and will I get credit for the two stays?

Cheers

No, each stay at a Hilton property must be separated by at least one night. Otherwise they'll join them together for you.

But if you stay at DoubleTree Sukhumvit one night and the Hilton Sukhumvit the next night you'll get two stays and they're right beside each other. I.e. walk out the back door and you're at the other hotel. The staff will happily direct you.

Nor will you be the first person to use this strategy ;) and they'll hold your luggage with no problems. When the DoubleTree opened I stayed there and had a talk to a senior manager and we discussed having two Hilton brand hotels beside each other. I told her about mattress runs and why we did them, i.e. to maintain status. She understood completely.

No you can have credit for one or the other but not both.
Personal experience of this :
Staying at a Hilton in Australia for 4 nights, during the stay a friend stayed in a Hilton property in the US on an Award stay from my account.
My own Hilton stay posted as zero base points. When questioned Hilton advised me that I couldn't have credit for two stays at once and had been credited a one night stay at the US property. I pointed out to them that the name on that reservation was "John Smith" and they reversed the stay credit and awarded me the points and nights for my own stay.

And I also understand that if you have say one night booked at a hotel with Reservation ABC123 and a 2nd night on a separate Reservation XYZ456, they will still treat it as one stay.

My upcoming scenario:

Staying at Conrad Singapore for 1 Night then flying to Bali early in the morning landing at 5am where I have booked the previous night and the forward night to use the hotel during the day, flying back to Singapore that night staying at the Hilton Singapore for the next 3 days.

Would this work for multi stay if I could prove that I was moving around?

No you can only get credit for one property at a time. This will be two stays 4 nights

I actually think Shinks is at risk of getting a single stay for Singapore (continuous dates do combined) and nothing for Bali (as concurrent)

Got a reply from hhonors twitter account:
@HiltonHHonors: @plutekplutek0 Hello- unfortunately, overlapping stays are not eligible for stay/night credit on one account.
I think the logic for this is that the stay/night/base points are attributed to the status member only (as Hilton accounts are for a person, not a couple or a family). It then stands to reason that a single person cannot stay the full night in two properties simultaneously.

That's exactly how it was explained to me when I rang up to query why my Australian stay posted without points.
The rep did fix it up for me after the explanation that I wasn't staying in two hotels at once.

I also understood if 1 night was a paid booking and the other night was an award booking the whole stay would be treated as an award booking.
