Update: this amenity has been around for a while I just didn’t come across it in center city hotels I’ve stayed at the last few times at a Hilton.
New Hilton Elite Member Amenity
It seems Hilton has already rolled out a new Elite amenity under the covers without me knowing about it. I just noticed this new amenity on a recent stay. I can’t believe I didn’t notice it before, but I’m glad it is there.
The new amenity (to me) is that Diamond members receive special elite member parking near the front of participating hotels. I noticed this as a recent Hampton Inn hotel. They had 6 spots near the front reserved especially for Diamond members.
Hilton Diamond members can park in designated parking spaces near the front of the hotel. This is a welcome addition to the elite member amenities.
But a couple of questions come to mind. How does this get enforced, do they give a Diamond ticket to hand from your rear view mirror? If not, the first come first serve approach seems like it doesn’t make as much sense given that if you arrive late to the hotel most of the parking spaces are already taken and there is a liklihood that other Diamond members have already checked in. Still, if you arrive late to the hotel and find one of these spots open, it is a nice surprise.
