Hilton Impresario Member Agencies

Individuals cannot book a stay directly through the Hilton Impresario program. A travel agency must carry out the booking.

Fortunately for us, there are many accredited agencies worldwide, including in the USA, Canada and France. Some agencies offer online services, while others require in-person visits.

Hilton Impresario - Eligible Rates

Hilton Impresario rates are not always the most competitive, as they correspond to the standard prices offered by Hilton, excluding promotions and negotiated rates.

While similar to online rates, bookings made through Hilton Impresario offer significant benefits, such as hotel credit and free breakfast. These bookings are generally flexible, with no-cost cancellations up to 24 hours in advance.

Even though the Hilton Impressario program allows you to earn twice as many Hilton Honors points when making a reservation, points cannot be used to book a reservation with the Hilton Honors program.

How Can I Get the Best Deal at Hilton Hotels?

Hilton Impresario is not the only program offering benefits and preferential rates when staying at Hilton hotels. American Express and Virtuoso, a global network of travel agencies, are also able to offer significant benefits.

To take advantage of the preferential rates offered by Virtuoso, you also need to go through a travel agency. To take advantage of the preferential rates offered by American Express, you need to be a Platinum cardholder.

In Canada, holders of the Platinum CardMD from American Express or the Business Platinum CardMD from American Express earn Hilton Honors Gold status free of charge, while in France,American Express Platinum American Express and Business Platinum American Express cards provide access to this status.

Gold status offers various benefits to make your stay more enjoyable, such as :

  • 80% bonus on Hilton Honors points earned
  • Late check-out, subject to availability
  • Room upgrade, subject to availability at time of check-in
  • Complimentary breakfast (valid in certain hotels only)

If you have Hilton Honors Gold status, it’s worth taking a look at the various offers Hilton has before you book a hotel stay. An informed approach could reveal more opportune offers than those proposed by Hilton Impresario, while guaranteeing access to the same privileges.
