The luxurious and aspirational 95,000 point-per-night properties are eye-catching, but they also aren’t the only way to spend your points. You can easily turn your points into a week or more of hotel accommodations if that’s your goal. With international travel set to resume in the coming months, now is a good time to explore some of the cheapest redemptions Hilton Honors has to offer.

Although some properties on these lists are more practical than aspirational, others are shockingly impressive.

Today our focus is on international Hilton properties. Specifically, let’s consider some examples of properties where you can stay for as little as 5,000 Hilton points per night.

Properties in Egypt

Egypt has recently experienced a tourism slump, resulting in some impressive-looking Hilton properties available for just 5,000 and 10,000 points per night. The two 5,000-point properties are located in tourist resort areas, while the two 10,000-point properties are located near Egypt’s largest cities.

Properties in Turkey

I visited Turkey in 2011 for a multiweek trip around the country. So, I’m particularly excited to see low-category Hilton properties in many of the areas I enjoyed on that trip — including multiple options in Istanbul. I’ll start with two 5,000-point per night properties before discussing some 10,000-point per night properties.

Properties in Asia

Although the four properties described below are all attractive due to their location or amenities, you can often find rates that make cash bookings a better option than redeeming points. Granted, these low rates are often nonrefundable, so booking with points will usually provide more flexibility.

The Doubletree Resort by Hilton Penang is outside Georgetown on the northern coast of Penang. As I found on a stay earlier this year, the hotel is family-focused with an on-site Teddy Bear museum, large children’s pool and play area, kids club, babysitting service, special kid’s food areas at the buffet and family packages. There’s also a large pool for adults and a gated walkway to Miami Beach.

Get Status for a Better Stay

If you’re going to stay at Hilton properties for many nights, you’ll want to have elite status before your stay. If you have Hilton Gold status, you can get space-available upgrades at check-in up to Executive rooms. And, if you have Diamond status, you can get space-available upgrades at check-in up to one-bedroom suites. Of course, there’s no guarantee you’ll be upgraded — nor to what category you’ll be upgraded, but status does help.

All elite levels are eligible for late checkout, and both Gold and Diamond elites receive breakfast for two each morning of their stay. Some properties also offer an Executive lounge, which Diamond elites can access with a guest even if they aren’t upgraded to an Executive room. Golds may be allowed if they are upgraded to an Executive room type.

Bottom Line

There are some excellent options for stretching your Hilton points in many parts of the world. From U.S. road trips to resort stays in Egypt, there are options for almost anyone that prefers to get as many nights as possible out of their Hilton points.
