Is there any way to know when Hilton raises the award rate on hotels besides actually checking each hotel?

I donít think so, especially since they are now tied to pricing too so if the pricing goes down the rate can go down. I rebooked a recent reservation 3 Times and saved over 20% from my first rate.

Down I understand, but isn't there an official maximum cap?

I think they do an annual announcement of what hotels chanced categories but now that you mention it Dan and/or Lucky usually do a post on it and I havenít seen one...

Now that we are allowed to transfer Hilton points, would it be a problem for an in-law to transfer me their points so I can book a reservation for them? I am a Diamond and they're Gold, the main benefit would be a better/upgraded room. I have booked for them before with no problem, but only using my own points.
 
Would a transfer and subsequent booking with them as the additional guest trigger any flags or is it acceptable under T+Cs?

Thank You!
Mike

Officially  you can book a cash stay out of your account for someone else and depending on the hotel they have a right to deny any diamond benefits if you are not present. And if ask Hilton reps about point booking for someone else ymmv

Normally not but if for example the rooms are blocked (like a Sukkot at WAJ) when you want to swap to a cert that room might not go back into inventory.

You can do it over the phone but they also have to cancel and hope they can see it internally to rebook.
