    Having stayed a while ago in the Bentley Hotel London, we have been surprised to learn that this Waldorf=Astoria branded Townhouse Hotel property has now joined the Hilton Family Main brand instead and is now known as the Bentley, a Hilton Hotel London.

    Anyone at MP who was also taken by this news development?

    This leaves London with one WA property, the Syon Park, a Waldorf=Astoria Hotel.

    Except that most WA pricing is 50K Low and 60K High. There are only two exceptions: Maldives and Wailea.

    How come that the Bentley in London can opt out of this? Plus....when it has now the moniker....A Hilton Hotel....why is it that the hotel is now more expensive // higher Cat to redeem some free nights? Any infos?:confused:

    Strange indeed! No Cat was added so far by Hilton, but the hotel is listed as Cat 8 which makes it more expensive than WA properties!:eek:

    I hope this is not a sign of more point inflation to come.

    This new development along with the elimination of diamond force for rewards and the resulting ridiculous point redemption rates for "premium" room rewards is a bad omen for what might be coming.
