If you are after a NYE trip then this looks great. Granted, there are cheaper flights but these have two stops and very long transit times at LHR, or worth shorter transit times but luggage is then extra. These are far better as flights are with Aer Lingus and have a short stop in Dublin (which makes security clearance so much easier) and luggage included. Flight times are decent and from a regional airport rather than London, I think they are great flight prices for the time of year (granted you can get cheaper at other times).

You depart on 27 December and return on 1 January. You will stay for 5 nights at the Hilton in the financial district which is close to the Statue of Liberty, Battery Park etc.

If you have gold status at the Hilton you will automatically get breakfast if you select this as your MyWay benefit and add your Hilton details onto the booking - though it is cheaper on booking.com than on Hilton direct. It may be worth dropping an email to the hotel once you've booked to ask them to add your Honours details onto your booking to ensure you get points etc.

Don't think you get to use gold status perks if you don't book direct through hilton
Sorry, but i had to vote cold as i don't think this is a particularly good deal.

No problem with that. Your feedback will help to decide how good a deal it is. I have given it heat because of the time of year etc I think it offers great value.
The ball drop in NYC is one of the most anticlimactic NYE events!

I believe you do. I stay at Hilton's weekly generally in London and never book direct and always receive points and gold status perks.
We did this last New Year , I would recommend going with Fitzpatrick Grand Central Hotel a lot cheaper and great reviews ,we loved it ,also don`t bother with Times Sq over rated and expensive or you have to get there 12 hours before ball drop which you can watch on TV, we did Fireworks River Cruise on Cornucopia yacht check it out , 4 hour free bar and Buffet was about £130 each and we upgraded included in that cornucopiamajesty.com/eve…ht/

That hotel is almost £300 a night unfortunately. There are cheaper hotels than the ones posted but they have shared bathrooms or are in Harlem, Brooklyn etc.

Ok, well you definitely don't get points or status perks when booking through hotels.com.

Do you always add a note to the hotel with your Honours number and status on? I always add to my booking 'Hilton Honours number XXX Gold Status'. My booking then generally appears on the app a few days before check in and I can check in online.
Yes. The terms and conditions clearly state aswell that you don't. Are most of your stays booked through a work company ? If so some of them do allow points and perks.

You mustn’t fly from NCL very often then

Op don’t forget prescreening customs in Dublin makes it so much easier.

Yes for London, but I've also booked using Ebookers/Expedia for hotels abroad and always had points too.

If you really want the points and breakfast then you could book with Hilton direct but it's more expensive. Failing that you could drop a message to Hilton and ask them to price match...... Under their best rate guarantee you may get it cheaper

Doubletree and Hilton are different brands.

I prefer Doubletree for the cookie you get on check-in
Hey, why not! HEAT.
It’s a good price from NCL.
Not particularly cheap. Don’t expect any Hilton benefits unless you book direct. If you are going to book, at least click through to Booking.com from the Avios store website for extra avios. Alternatively If first time on Booking.com ask a friend for a referral code for £15 off.
Only soft drinks and water are complimentary on Aer Lingus transatlantic economy, alcoholic drinks have to be bought. Could be relevant those who like an inflight tipple....
Heat! Very good price for 5 nights in NYC on NYE
