    When using Priceline NYOP or Hotwire to book a room you might end up at a Hilton. You are not entitled to points or HHonors benefits during you stay, but often the hotel will honor some of the HH benefits. Lets keep a thread on the successes and failures of getting HHonors benefits on such stays.

    I've found at multiple Homewood Suites locations that it's useful to ask at checkin if I can add my HH number "so that I can get some points for the incidentals, since I know I don't get points for the stay itself." Then they see the status and change the room to a full 1BR King even though I've booked a studio Queen. At least once I got stay credit out of it as well, albeit for a grand total of 40 points.

    Did you give them your HHonors number at check-in?
     
  6. How do you get a honors number input on a priceline stay

    Once I tried calling hhonors, but they couldn't put it in. Instead I just give the hotel my HHonors card when handing over my credit card for incidentals.

    My experience exactly. I was told by HHonors that they can't put the number in for Priceline stays (not that they won't, but that they can't. I hand over the HHonors card with my credit card and photo ID. Once, years ago, I had someone at the LAX Hilton ask what that was for, but since, they just take it and enter my number. Sometimes I get benefits, sometimes not, it becomes an interesting little game.

    Does these stays even count towards the number of stays?
