Hilton Replaces Breakfast Benefit with $10-$25 Credit at US Hotels
Beginning in July, Hilton Honors will roll out a Daily Food & Beverage (F&B) Credit at more than 1,500 Hilton hotels across the Unites States. This is available to Gold and Diamond members through the end of 2021. Hilton says that the Daily F&B Credit will provide travelers with more flexibility and choice and is something that guests asked for.
Replacing the complimentary Continental Breakfast benefit offered as a Hilton Honors MyWay benefit, the credit can be applied to any eligible food or beverage purchases billed to the guest’s room up to the total daily credit value, any time of day. Hilton provides some examples on how you can use this credit:
- The Avocado Toast on sunflower multi-grain bread at Fenwick Shores, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, with the $12 per day credit
- A Bacon, Egg & Cheese Sandwich on a brioche bun served with potatoes at the Canopy Central Cafe & Bar at Canopy by Hilton Washington DC The Wharf, with the $15 per day credit
- Fresh Hawaiian Poke Bowls including Ahi, Ahi & Crab, Crispy Shrimp or Salmon at Café Kula at the Grand Wailea, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, with the $25 per day credit
- The Chocolate Brownie topped with house-made marshmallow and smoked caramel at Woodie Fisher Kitchen & Bar at Hilton Garden Inn Denver Union Station, with the $10 per day credit.
Gold and Diamond members who choose the Hilton Honors Daily F&B Credit as their MyWay benefit, plus one additional guest registered to the same room (one room per stay), will receive a $10 to $25 credit depending on the brand and location. The participating Hilton brands include Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, LXR Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Canopy by Hilton, Signia by Hilton, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Curio Collection by Hilton, Tapestry Collection by Hilton, DoubleTree by Hilton, Motto by Hilton, and Hilton Garden Inn.
On a positive note, members that select the F&B Credit as their MyWay benefit will receive the Hilton Honors Daily F&B credit on Points eligible rates including specific food & beverage packages.

The press release now makes this change official. Instead of complimentary Continental Breakfast, guests now will receive a $10 to $25 credit depending on the brand and location. That’s probably not enough to cover breakfast at many properties, so I would assume that most people see it as negative news. On the other hand, you get to use the credit whenever you want, and not just for breakfast.
