Hilton changes = Corby goes up!

Loyalty lobby reports here on the new Hilton HHonors award category changes. This happens every couple of months, so is not unexpected or surprising at all. Properties move up and down in categories in these announcements and there is a general sense of balance.
However, the very sad piece of news for people using points to complete challenges for Gold and Diamond in the UK, is that the Hampton in Corby/Kettering has been upgraded to a Category 2 hotel. This means that one night will cost 10,000 points rather than the previous 5,000 at Category 1. The only Category 1 property left in the UK for cheap “mattress runs” is the Hampton in Newport.
