79 Hilton Hotels & Resorts For US Getaways

Filed Under: Hilton, Hilton Honors

While we’re writing more about travel this week, we’re not necessarily suggesting people do travel (though if you do, please be considerate and smart). But we also recognize that many folks need a break, whether that’s because they have been homeschooling for months, or living in a small apartment, or otherwise need a reset.

We’ve been receiving numerous questions and requests for help with domestic travel in the US, which makes sense — many people want to stay close, and international travel will likely be fairly complicated for awhile. Many people have asked about road trips and National Parks specifically, so our colleague Jimmy helped me put together a list of hotels that might fit the bill.

We decided to start with Hilton, both because they have a broad domestic footprint in the U.S., and because all the card perks make it so easy to rack up Hilton points right now.

While these aren’t always the most traditionally aspirational properties, for many folks luxury looks a bit different this year anyway. We have marked the properties that count as “resorts” for the purposes of the Aspire credit, though using that at a local restaurant is still our recommendation.

We’ve included the price ranges in Hilton Honors points, but for many of these hotels you’ll really want to look at the paid rates. Properties in ski destinations, for example, are often great jumping off points for summer and fall hiking, and rates are just a fraction of what they’d be in-season.

And of course, before making any plans, and again before embarking on your trip, you’ll want to check the local and state health guidelines, and be familiar with any tourism restrictions.

It’s also worth noting that if you live in a region of the country that is taking pandemic precautions seriously, you may want to stay in that region — and vice versa. Absent a coordinated federal response, the approaches vary wildly by state and sometimes county, which absolutely makes travel more complicated.


National Parks

Outdoor-focused trips like visiting State and National Parks will likely be popular this summer (as long as people are recreating responsibly). Be sure to check out this OMAAT reader’s guide on how to save money on visiting US National Parks, and check the individual park pages for tips on planning your itinerary, as not all facilities are open.

If this is helpful, we can do something similar for other chains as well (though as Steph and I discussed on the Happy Hour last Thursday, for many of these destinations you’re likely better off renting a house or camping). And if you have tips on either these Hilton properties, or others that might make good road-trip stops for fellow readers, please share in the comments!

Comments
  1. You have a picture titled “Mooney Falls, Grand Canyon”. It’s not in the Grand Canyon. It’s in the Havasupai Reservation and it’s practically impossible to get a permit from the tribe to visit.

  2. Oh my, Tiffany! Fun List (although Arizona ones are not very inviting right now )

    But you missed one great Florida Beach Hotel, so add it, and make your list an even 80! 😉

    The DoubleTree North Reddington Beach, Florida – St Pete/Tampa area. Great location on the beach, wonderful people, Mango’s restaurant, and Tikki Bar. Newly renovated, we visited twice now and used our AmEx HH Aspire $250 resort credit, plus 2 $40 credits on 2 different AmEx EveryDay cards 🙂

  3. After Ben’s Deliverance-like escapade in Arid-zona, I’m surprised to see a list encompassing some of those territories. I can’t shake the sense that even road getaways will seem like wishful thinking in a month.

  4. @echino: “You have a picture titled “Mooney Falls, Grand Canyon”. It’s not in the Grand Canyon. It’s in the Havasupai Reservation and it’s practically impossible to get a permit from the tribe to visit.”

    The location of Mooney Falls within the Havasupai Reservation does not negate the fact that the falls themselves are within the geography of the Grand Canyon – the canyon is far larger than the national park of the same name.

    Your correction here to the caption was not necessary, because the caption is not inaccurate.

  5. @ Rik — Fair! But if someone is in Phoenix or Las Vegas, getting some space for a few days might be super welcomed. I know my mom and sister (in Scottsdale) just want to be outside and away from people as much as possible right now, which is hard given that summer in Phoenix is so hot, and structured around mainly indoor activities.

    People are going to have a range of needs and wants right now, so tried to go broad.

  6. Great list, very timely for our planning, thank you. I’d love to see a Hyatt list, particularly since they have an exceptional promotion running on dollar spend.

  7. Hilton Anatole Dallas. A Hotel-museum-waterpark, amazing property with a huge art collection you can admire while taking a long walk. The water park (lazy river, adults pool, activity center) is a solid option for the summer. All this a few blocks from downtown Dallas

  8. Great list! At 60k a night, please add Bakers Cay Resort in Key Largo. They have a small beach and lots of activities included in rate like bicyles, fishing poles and kayaks.

  9. Lots of great and good hotels on this list. Beware the Diplomat. Not only is the price for everything in the hotel ridiculous (and I say this as someone who lives in one of the most expensive places in the country) but when my conference was cancelled AND they closed the hotel entirely they tried to charge me a two night cancellation fee of over $800. I had to do a chargeback to get my money back. Lets recap. My conference is cancelled. The hotel closed entirely due to COVID and they cancelled my reservation. And they charged me a cancellation fee. Sorry, can’t recommend them.

  10. I know that everybody seems to love the Aspire card, but I was content with my no AF Honors card. I’m primarily a Marriott person, so never really felt like I’d do much business with Hilton. Undeniably, Aspire carries so much potential. I kept looking at it and looking at it, and eventually decided to take the plunge when offered an upgrade to my Honors card. As a new Aspire cardholder, I appreciate having such a valuable resource. Thank you for sharing your research!

  11. Great and useful article – thank you!

    We also need same for other regions, such APAC, Europe, Middle East, etc. as a handy reference for upcoming travel.
