Great deal on a trip to Hawaii from Hilton!

What good timing on a special Hawaiian vacation offer! This past Thursday, a great opportunity came in the mail from Hilton HHonors and the Hilton Grand Vacations Club for 5-days & 4-Nights in Hawaii at one of the Hilton Resorts!

It happened to be perfect timing for our short term vacation planning for 2007. Basically, we needed to take a trip in late February to early March for various reasons. We were considering a lot of options, including Cancun, Puerto Vallarta, and Cabo San Lucas -- in addition to Hawaii.

What really sealed the deal was this offer, and the addition that United Airlines has very reasonable fares to Hawaii this February -- we picked up our round-trip tickets from Los Angeles for less than $300 each. We briefly though about visiting the Big Island of Hawaii, but with ticket prices being a couple hundred dollars more, we decided to head back to Oahu.

We have stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu, Hawaii (Waikiki) on a couple of different occasions and we have found it fantastic each time. In addition, our Gold status with Hilton HHonors has benefited us greatly -- on each occasion we were upgraded to suites on the 20th+ floor of the Rainbow tower. The terms of this promotion are such that the eligibility for upgrades is the same as booking through Hilton. Plus, you get $100 Hilton dollars to spend at the resort -- sounds like we will be having at least one meal at Benihana.

For those who are interested, I believe the offer is available to selected folks from Hilton HHonors, and the Hilton Grand Vacation Club, but I am not sure. Here is the information from the brochures if you happen to be interested!
