We all need a little time away sometimes, even if it’s just for the weekend. This is where your stockpile of points and miles comes in handy. A one- or two-night vacation is an easy redemption, and it’s generally pretty simple to earn in the first place. If you’re itching for a weekend getaway, here are some Hilton properties that we think you should consider!

With respect to her tenacity and pioneering spirit, the property’s featured rooftop hang is named Abigail’s Hideaway.

Pop up to the Hideaway for a game of giant chess, a glass of wine or to just drink in the Portland skyline around you. Make sure to grab a steaming cup of local coffee from the on-site Mayrose Coffee Bar.

Have you ever stayed in a U.S. hotel that holds a deeper historical legacy than the United States itself? The Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza is housed in a 300-year-old hacienda, reminiscent of New Mexico’s days as a Spanish colony. Featuring Southwest-themed decor and pops of color, this historic hotel offers a cozy space to rest and unwind for the weekend.

Whether it’s summer or winter, we suggest heading to the pool deck to take a dip, curl up next to the kiva fireplace or soak in the hot tub. In the morning, enjoy a fresh pastry crafted by the hotel’s in-house pastry chef.

Rapid City, South Dakota, is the gateway to the Black Hills in one direction and the Badlands National Park in the other, but it holds a special charm of its own. Part of this charm comes from the iconic Hotel Alex Johnson, a building dating back to 1927. Combining western pioneer vibes with several nods to the Oglala Sioux Tribe, this property is an excellent South Dakota base.

Head west into the Black Hills to explore Keystone and Hill City, or head east to Wall and Interior for a Badlands adventure. Either way, be sure to fuel up with Irish comfort food at Paddy O’Neill’s Pub & Grill, then unwind with a drink at Vertex Skybar.

A night at this property is available from 15,000 Hilton HHonors points.

Cards to Help You Earn Hilton Points

Hilton has a long-standing partnership with American Express and offers four different co-branded cards: three personal cards and one business card.

The Hilton Honors American Express Business Card

Perfect for business owners on the go, The Hilton Honors American Express Business is a card with decent earning potential and plenty of travel benefits. While it comes with a $95 annual fee (see rates and fees), cardholders earn 12X points per dollar spent on Hilton purchases, 6X points per dollar on flights booked directly with airlines or through Amex Travel and on car rentals booked directly through select car rental agencies, and 3X points per dollar spent on all other purchases.

In addition, this card is an excellent way to jump straight to Gold status. A $95 annual fee is a pretty small price to pay considering that benefit. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to upgrade to Diamond status depending on how much you’re planning on using the card, which is a definite bonus.

Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card

The Hilton Honors American Express Aspire Card is our favorite credit card in the collection, and it comes with a hefty $450 annual fee (see rates and fees). At first glance, it might not seem worth it to splurge on a high-fee card when the points earning potential is only marginally better than the other three cards in the collection. However, when weighing the annual fee against the additional benefits, it might be a good deal if you’re looking to skyrocket your status.

Cardholders earn 14X points per dollar spent on Hilton purchases, 7X points per dollar spent on purchases at U.S. restaurants, flights booked directly with the airline or through Amex Travel and cars booked directly through select car rental agencies, and 3X points per dollar spent on all other eligible purchases. Note that the value of the accompanying travel benefits surpasses the annual fee, so as long as you’re planning on using the benefits, this card is well worth it.

Bottom Line

If you’re looking for a way to spend your stockpile of Hilton Honors points, there are plenty of options—even for a short getaway. If you haven’t yet earned enough points, consider opening a line of credit and taking advantage of the great welcome offers. Then, start earning points on everyday purchases to use towards your dream weekend escape.
