Starting today, Friday, May 13, 2016, the Hilton Big World Sale is in effect where you can save up to 30 percent off of the best available room rate at hotel and resort properties which are part of the brand portfolio of Hilton Worldwide — but the specific details vary by region and brand; and they may also vary by specific hotel and resort properties.
Members of the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program receive an additional discount of five percent across the board — except in China, where the discount is the same as it is for guests who are not members.
You must pay in full for your reservation in advance at the time of booking it, as your credit card will be charged immediately for the total amount quoted for the entire stay as reserved; and refunds or credits will not be issued unless otherwise indicated by local law. Your reservation may be canceled by the hotel or resort property if your credit card information is invalid or if your credit card is declined. Charges cannot be applied to other stays, services or merchandise. Once your reservation is booked, it cannot be changed or cancelled under any circumstance. If you fail to arrive at the hotel or resort property on the scheduled arrival date, your reservation will be cancelled and you will not receive any refund or credit.
Access to standard Wi-Fi access is available free of charge; whereas access to premium Wi-Fi access — if available — will incur a fee. Wi-Fi access is not free at hotel and resort properties which charge a resort fee.

Additional Select Terms and Conditions
This offer is subject to availability. There is limited availability in the Americas; and only while supplies last. Each hotel and resort property has a policy which addresses cancellations and blackout dates which may apply. This offer may not be combined with other select promotions, offer or discounts; and it is not valid for existing reservations or groups. “Book only at”, “Booked Direct” or similar phrasing means the maximum discounts associated with this offer are exclusively presented for Hilton HHonors members on Hilton Worldwide brand Internet web sites, Hilton Worldwide reservation call centers, the Hilton HHonors software application program for mobile devices, directly at a Hilton Worldwide hotel, or through preferred corporate travel partners and approved travel agents.
Unless otherwise stated, quoted rates are per room per night, based on single or double occupancy and do not include taxes, gratuities, incidental charges and — if applicable — resort fees.
Other terms and conditions apply.
It truly is a big world out there; and you can potentially score some significant savings on hotel and resort stays through this promotion — if you are willing to pay in full for your reservations in advance and do not intend to change your travel schedule.
If you must keep your travel plans flexible, consider bypassing this sale and look for deals which are more forgiving should you need to change or cancel your reservations — and if you want to remain loyal to Hilton HHonors, you might want to start with room rates for members only as an incentive to get you to “stop clicking around” where you can potentially find a good deal but with significantly fewer restrictions.
Either way, do not forget that you will earn double Hilton HHonors points on every stay at any hotel or resort property in the world which is part of the brand portfolio of Hilton Worldwide.
