Hilton Expands Luxury Portfolio with SLH Partnership

2 mins read

Hilton has significantly expanded its luxury offerings through a strategic partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH), adding nearly 400 boutique properties to its portfolio. This collaboration enhances Hilton’s appeal to high-end travellers seeking intimate and unique experiences in coveted locations.

Guests can now book stays at these boutique hotels via Hilton’s direct booking channels, including Hilton.com and the Hilton Honors app. These properties complement Hilton’s existing luxury brands, such as Waldorf Astoria and Conrad, offering a range of experiences from rustic retreats to beachfront villas.

Hilton Honors members will benefit greatly from this partnership, earning and redeeming points for stays at SLH hotels. They will also enjoy exclusive perks like free Wi-Fi and guaranteed member discounts, with Gold and Diamond members receiving additional benefits such as room upgrades and complimentary breakfast.

“The hundreds of independently minded properties are highly complementary to our luxury portfolio and support Hilton’s ongoing efforts to expand and create distinct, localised travel experiences for our guests,” said Chris Silcock, President of Global Brands and Commercial Services at Hilton.

Beyond core membership benefits, Hilton Honors offers flexible Points & Money payment options, waived resort fees on all-point bookings, and the popular 5th Night Free benefit. This partnership expands the reach of SLH’s boutique hotels to Hilton’s loyal clientele, transforming the global landscape for independently owned hotels.

The collaboration highlights several enticing SLH properties, including the Caribbean’s Hermitage Bay and the Parisian-inspired Lanson Place Causeway Bay in Hong Kong. These choices cater to a variety of travel styles and preferences.

With 390 SLH properties already signed on and more expected to join, this partnership is set to reshape the luxury travel landscape for Hilton guests, offering a broader range of hotels and valuable program benefits.
