The Conrad New York is located in lower Manhattan near the financial district, Wall Street, and the New York Stock Exchange.  Some folks say the rooms at the Conrad New York are nicer than other Hiltons in New York.

If you don’t mind the subway, the location is OK.  But others might prefer the Hilton Times Square or Waldorf Astoria instead, because they’re closer to midtown Manhattan.

The hotel is within a short subway or cab ride to many interesting neighborhoods, including Tribeca, Chinatown, and SoHo.   And it’s close to the 9/11 Memorial.

Weekend Night Certificate Stays Can’t Be Booked Online – You’ll Have to Call Hilton

There are a few other details to remember:

  • The certificates are valid for 12 months from the date they’re issued
  • They can only be used for Friday, Saturday, or Sunday night stays
  • Only the primary cardholder can use the certificates
  • The room rate and taxes are included, but gratuities, incidental charges, and resort fees are NOT (although some folks report certain hotels will waive the resort fee!)
  • You can only book a standard room (not a premium room or suite) with these certificates

And if you accidentally delete the email (or don’t receive it), don’t worry – the certificates should still show up in your Hilton account when you call them!

Note:   You’ll only get the $100 statement credit if you spend at least $100 on your 1st Hilton stay within 3 months of opening your account.

Bottom Line

There are so many options in the US to make the most of your 2 weekend night certificates from the Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve card.  By choosing otherwise expensive hotels, you’ll get the best value.

These are just a few ideas – there are lots of other choices!

  1. We’re using ours at the Conrad Bangkok where we had already booked four nights on points this coming October. Two will now be free thanks to this bonus.

  2. Darius – here’s hoping this series will stretch into SE Asia. Where to stay in Phuket, Cambodia, Bali ? (Hope to see you and your wife at FTU – I am registered only because I can write-off the increasing, and a bit alarming, registration fee of $250. That time, late August, will be my one-year anniversary of hard-core churning — an intense and successful intro to the Hobby.)

  3. Daruis,
    You should caution your readers that the two free night stay that is awarded with a Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve Card has a one year expiration date, and is not extendable. I will be using the card for two nights at a Hampton Inn, which is a really bad use of the award, because I cannot schedule a more exotic place before the expiration date. To their credit, the person I spoke to at the Hilton HHonors award desk even told me I might want to use points from my account because that hotel is only 20,000 points per night. Well, it still saves about $200, but nothing like what would be possible at some of the more exotic Hilton locations.

  4. Darius – My wife & I both have HHonors pts. less than 60,000. Is there a way to transfer our pts so we could get a 3rd night in addition to our 2 free nights? BTW – we just spent 3 nights at the NYC Waldorf Astoria using my 2 free nights. Had a great time.

  5. Hi Darius. Dated comment here. Can you use the certificates and still take advantage of potential upgrades with Gold Status? Or, b/c you are using Certificates, upgrade eligibility is N/A? Just wondering. Thanks!

  6. Hi! What if I have a trip to Miami planned in December, and do not currently have the Citi Hilton HHonors Reserve card. I intend to apply for it, and then it will take me 4 months to get the 2 free weekend nights. Can I reserve my room now with another credit card, and call back and have them refund me, and give me the 2 free nights that I have earned from the card?

  7. The South Beach Bently is an amazing hotel. Perfect location. That’s where I used my certificates. Right off the “main drag.” It’s in a quieter area of South Beach, but you can quickly (under 5 min) walk to where all the action is.

    And don’t forget the amazing Cuban food in South Beach!!
