    I’ve got enough points for a two night stay in I think any Hilton, so I am going to try and offload the kids for a long weekend in Feb.

    Anyone got any tips for a nice Hilton in which to spend a luxury kid-free weekend? Ironically, the Cardiff one is nice and in the centre of a nice town but we live here so that’s out 🙂

    London is an obvious choice, but are any of the other city locations nice?

    Paris is nice enough, close by the Blackpool Tower replica.

    I have been staying here over the past few weeks. There’s plenty to do in Edinburgh and the hotel is smart too. Which makes a nice change from most of the other Hiltons that I have stayed in.

    Spending the weekend in Paris Hilton? Not sure that’s great for the other half..

    I just looked at Paris. Not bad, but we aren’t that keen on Paris as a city due to past tribulations, but it might work.

    Some other foreign location could be good – jsut checking flights for Stockholm. Don’t have much cash though hence the Hilton requirement.

    Hmm, I see there is one in the Cairngorms.. hmm..

    EDIT trail_rat – simultaneous posts 🙂

    Hopefully would catch a bit of snow up there in Feb, which we do like.

    Brighton Hilton is on the sea front which is nice. We’ve been there a couple of times and I can advise NOT taking a VW Transporter into the underground car park.

    When I use to travel/hotel loads, the last thing I’d ever want to do is do either in my own time…

    Stratford-upon-Avon/Warwick?

    Don’t have much cash though hence the Hilton requirement.

    Yer, right…

    I accumulated points when travelling for work, so the hotel will be free.

    Cairngorm ones busy in Feb, I can imagine. Possibly not others though..?

    If money is tight just go somewhere nearby. We offloaded the kids and went to the Hilton in Wokingham last year as a birthday treat. It’s 10 miles from our house but just being able to wander up the road for a drink and a meal then get a proper nights sleep was fantastic.

    There’s a chance we could just stay in the Cardiff one, that’s not that bad an idea, but we can afford diesel for a couple of hours drive. Only thing is, the kids have to be taken to Shropshire to my folks, so somewhere north would be convenient.

    Manchester has two Hiltons, both are really quite nice.

    Presumably you are a gold or platinum hhonors member?

    If you are then you’ll be wanting one with an exec lounge, so you can drink and eat for free too.

    Manchester Deansgate, Glasgow or Newcastle would be my choices.

    Hmm, Manchester could work.

    As for gold membership – not sure if I will be by then or not. I’m almost there.

    No. Really no, it’s a genuinely horrible place*.

    I’m not cute, I’m dashing. At least that’s what mother tells me.

    I’ve also got a GSOH, but not everyone seems to get it 😉

    The Doubletree (part of the hilton group and I guess you can spend your points there) Chester is very nice and not too far from Shropshire.
