Optimizing Hotel Stays with Hilton Impresario: How to Get the Elite Experience & Make Yourself a VIP

Ultimate Guide to the Hilton Impresario Program: How to Get the Elite Experience & Make Yourself a VIP 

Unlock Hilton Impresario VIP benefits at the Hilton collection of luxury brands that include Waldorf Astoria, Conrad and LXR Hotels & Resorts when booking your stay with an eligible Travel Advisor, like The Family Travel Guy.

Member travel agencies within these programs have the privilege of offering their clients exceptional perks and amenities akin to those enjoyed by travelers with hotel elite status.  And even if you have hotel elite status that unlocks great value-added benefits, Hilton Impresario can still go above and beyond providing special offers and even better value-added benefits (or combine the best of both!).

The Family Travel Guy is a Virtuoso affiliated Travel Advisor and is able to offer Hilton Impresario benefits to clients staying at eligible Hilton brands.

What are Hilton Impresario benefits?

  • Hilton Impresario benefits include:
    • Complimentary breakfast for 2 guests
    • $100 USD hotel credit per stay (or local equivalent)
    • Double Hilton Honors Points
    • Best available rates
    • VIP guest status
    • Last room availability
    • Upgrade to next room category (subject to availability)
    • Access to special offers (percentage savings, free nights, etc)
  • If you’re planning a trip to any of these luxury Hilton brands and not booking with an Hilton Impresario affiliated Travel Advisor, you are leaving lots of perks, benefits and huge value behind.

How to Book a Hilton Impresario Rate?

  • Hilton Impresario rates can only be booked by eligible travel advisors who have access to the program.  You can contact me, The Family Travel Guy, if you have a hotel booking request for an eligible Hilton hotel. 

Is There a Minimum Stay Requirement?

  • Some Hilton brands have minimum stay requirements to qualify for Hilton Impresario benefits that vary depending on the hotel.

What Rates Qualify for Hilton Impresario?

  • In most cases, the “Best Available Rate” or "Flexible/Standard Rate" needs to be booked in order to gain access to Hilton Impresario benefits.  
  • You can't combine rates or use other discounted rates or use points to book your stay.

Can Existing Reservations Get Hilton Impresario Benefits?

  • If you made a reservation and paid using an eligible flexible/standard rate, you may be able to get Hilton Impresario benefits added to your existing reservation.  In these cases, reach out to me and I can see what your options are.  

Is Hilton Impresario Similar to Having Elite Status in the Hilton Honors Program (Diamond Status)? 

  • Yes - but without the requirements needed for elite status!  

  • If you don't travel extensively for business or leisure and can't reach the requirements needed for Hilton Diamond Status, you can book a Hilton Impresario rate and make yourself a VIP!  

What Brands are Included in Hilton Impresario?

  • Impresario benefits are only available at Waldorf Astoria, LXR, and Conrad hotels and resorts.
