Interesting. For me the draw card will be the HH benefits. Might be a good chance to set Diamond apart from Gold a bit more; currently there is little incentive to pull together those extra stays from Gold.
I do like the LC with SPG, and they generally offer the full benefits of status.
Anyone seen this yet? The Curio Collection by Hilton.
First cab off the rank seems to be the new SLS Casino in Vegas.
I'll be interested in this as a leisure traveller if Hilton can pull off the boutique vibe. I'd often prefer the vibe of a smaller, unique hotel, but my HH status takes me to Hilton Family hotels. If this gets enough traction around the world, I would be very happy! Could be the best of both worlds?
