Conrad Hotels, part of the Hilton Worldwide chain, have extended their offer of either a free breakfast for two or a free room upgrade at every Conrad hotel, worldwide. The offer was due to expire on 31 December 2014, but has now been extended to 31 March 2015.
You need to book via this link, and stay by 31 March 2015. However, stays booked prior to 28 January 2015 should also compare prices available via this link, to see if the Winter Sale of up to 33% off provides a better value deal, which it may well do.
And a Hilton Group sale reminder…
This offer from Conrad puts into sharp focus the excellent value you can get from the current Hilton sale (which, as noted above, applies to bookings up to 28 January).
As an example, euflyer.com favourite the Conrad Istanbul can be booked with the free upgrade/breakfast offer with prices starting at TRY506 (€180) per night:
However, book the same room via the Hilton winter sale here, and it is just TRY304 (€108), a 40% saving. Ok you won’t get the room upgrade, but for 40% more it is not value for money. Breakfast can be secured for a fraction more, at TRY341 (see below).
If you’re not HHonors Gold or Diamond (who get breakfast free) and would like breakfast included, then that can be secured at just TR341 (€121):
As such, if you’re making your booking before 28 January 2015, when you can still benefit from the Hilton Winter Sale, it is very important that you check the sale prices before committing to the Conrad free breakfast/upgrade offer.
It will of course depend on the relative prices at the particular Conrad you are booking, but while the Conrad offer is still adding value for money to the standard rate, the Hilton sale is generally offering substantially better value. Why pay €180 a night for a “free” breakfast when you can pay €121 for the same room with breakfast included?!
