Update 2: Hilton has reached out to confirm that ‘The credit is per person (up to two guests registered to the room) rather than per room.’
Update: In an e-mail sent out to owners we do have the amounts for different properties:
The credit can be utilized at all participating F&B outlets on-property including the market and room service. Members will be instructed to charge all F&B purchases to their folio. Credits will be provided daily to Gold and -Diamond members and up to one guest registered to the room. Gold members will have the option to either receive points or the F&B credit, while Diamond members will receive both points and the credit. -Credits do not accrue or rollover if unused. If they are used, it will be processed through manual folio adjustments by the night audit. The credit amounts are as follows: Luxury $25, -Full Service $12 (or $15 in high-cost markets), Lifestyle $12 (or $15 in high-cost markets), and Hilton Garden Inn $10.
Original post: Hilton has announced that starting July 2021 and through the end of the year Hilton Gold & Diamond members will receive a dining credit instead of complimentary continental breakfast at U.S. properties. Unlike the old policy where the breakfast was good for up to two guests, this new credit will be granted for the entire room regardless of how many people are staying (i.e credit is per room not per person. Owners e-mail update above suggests this isn’t the case and it’s per person).
Hilton is saying the credit will vary by property, when TPG first published their article they stated the credit would be $15 (this has since been removed, but gives us a baseline idea of what to expect). Unfortunately that isn’t enough to even cover breakfast for one at most properties. Obviously some people will prefer this benefit as they didn’t use the breakfast benefit anyway, although I think the credit amount should be enough to cover at least breakfast for one person.
