Topic Wiki

Certificates may be redeemed at any Hilton category, including the most prestigious properties such as The Waldorf Jerusalem and The Waldorf Maldives, provided that "Standard Room Reward" availability is present. It should be noted that securing standard room availability at high-category properties, particularly during peak periods, may be quite challenging or even impossible.

To obtain a certificate, the certificate holder typically initiates the process by calling to make a reservation under their name. Subsequently, the certificate buyer is added as a second check-in guest. However, it is important to note that this approach is generally not favored by hotels. As such, it is advisable to approach the process with tact to ensure a smooth experience.

I just learned of this forum from Google. I'm already a Diamond Hilton Honors member with a current free night, but I am looking to purchase two more certificates to use in conjunction with my personal certificate. I did a little due diligence on how this process works and how to protect myself as a buyer but every post was from many years ago.

Are the certificates transferrable in 2024? If not how does one assure a real exchange of funds for a certificate and how do I use certificate?

When purchasing a certificate you need to be 2nd guest added on

So is it customary to pay the seller in full of front then arrange a conference call to book the stay? I havent read every post but it seems no one has been burned on here yet.

If we would have been burned it would be by the guy with two posts and asking Noob questions.

No rules here,its up to buyer and seller to decide how to transact but usually a newcomer will have to be willing to do his side first

I respect that. Iíll just look for a seasoned member and seller. Thanks.

While weíre here, Iím searching for two certificates to accompany my one if anyone has two available. Iím already a Diamond member so it shouldnít make a difference if seller is Diamond or Gold status.

Iím not locked in on a travel date so I prefer expiration dates to be after September.

Thank you for this education. Iíve obviously never purchased otherís certificate before, although I see several purchases in my future. Iím accustom to securing stays ahead of time, but Onsee your point in waiting until closer to travel time.
