It took a bit of effort. The easy bit was applying for the credit card and spending the £750 to qualify for a free night. I made a hash of redeeming it in Boston but, after a battle, will have a twin room in the Hilton Park Lane ahead of the last day of the football season.
And I can’t think of anywhere more I’d rather relax. Other than the Conrad. Or Waldorf. Both of which had no availability.
Never mind though, my Hilton Gold card (obtained by getting a status match after staying at Holiday Inns rather than Hiltons) gets a likely room upgrade and a free breakfast. So the likely benefit of this stay will exceed £450. Not that I’d have considered paying anything like that using my own money. But it’s a nice treat.
That might be forgotten in Wimbledon beat Oldham on the Sunday and relegate them to League Two.
