    I have four of the QF3N certificates from promos last year and want to use them over Labor Day somewhere. I'm looking for recommendations of good locations with (obviously) very nice hotels to make use of the certificates over the long weekend holiday?

    I like both the San Francisco and Chicago Hiltons. I don't know if you can use it, but the Boca Raton Resort and Club is a Hilton Affiliated Property.

    Thanks for the ideas, gpaya. I'd like to shoot for a Conrad or resort/upper level venue to make good use of the certs, maybe somewhere international.

    Any other suggestions?

    I had a really great experience at the Roma Hilton. Has a great breakfast and pool and the views are phenomenal.

    Conrad Chicago is lovely and excellent location. Hilton Arc de Triomphe is also lovely with a great executive lounge.

    Labor Day? They have to be used within one year of earning and the promo ended in June. Do you mean Memorial day weekend? In that case I'd suggest The Bentley in London. The Hilton Arc d triomphe. Any of the Asian condrads. Is there anywhere you've not been you'd like to see?

    In addition the suggestions above, I'd consider the Rome Cavalieri.

    I have been racking up Hhonors points for quite a while without redeeming, so I am def. a noob at the different acronyms you guys use here. Can you enlighten me to what a QF3N certificate is and any other important acronyms?

    Thanks!

    Good Idea, I know quite a few of them, but maybe a sticky board, listing them, that can be added to, by persons that use them.
    Not even Mr. Google knows all of them.

    I am still learning many of the award terms myself and a sticky sounds great to explain them all, esp the axon(?) amex options. As for this thread the cert is good up to level seven category hotel, I believe, for one night per cert. Its a valuable cert because you can select a really nice property or one that meets your needs at a lower level. I got mine though a promo, I don't know if it is actually part of the award chart or not. Most hotel awards are a combo of the level hotel and the number nights you are staying.

    Q3FN is 3rd quarter promo free night. Basically during q3 last year they ran a promo where for every 4 stays you'd get 1 free night for 1 year from date of issue to use at any hilton world wide. 10 nights would also get the same reward, but most were earned hotel hopping on stays to get more faster.

    The promo ran from april 4 or so to July 1 or so which is why I questioned the OP on using them on Labor day more than a year after they could have been earned.
