New(ish) Perk For Hilton Diamonds At Hampton Inns

I don’t stay at Hilton properties very often, though I did somehow get the Diamond treatment on my trip to Miami Beach a few months ago. Anyway, I’m staying at a Hampton Inn for a wedding in Maryland this weekend, and noticed a special perk for you real Diamonds out there:

That’s right – special parking for Diamond elite members. This particular Hampton Inn has maybe 3-5 spots reserved, though I don’t really know how they enforce it. While it’s better than a slap in the face, my initial reaction was that it doesn’t seem like that big of a deal either. I hadn’t heard anything about this perk so decided to do a quick search to see if it was indeed something new that they were rolling out. Turns out, it is a new(ish) perk – this thread on FlyerTalk made mention of it a little over 2 months ago, and the reaction wasn’t very positive.

If I had Diamond status with Hilton, I’d probably prefer just about anything over a slightly better parking spot – even an extra free bottle of water. But maybe I’m missing something. Anyone out there think this is a really great perk for top tier Hilton members? Any Diamonds found it to actually be useful on your Hampton Inn stays?

    I could use that perk at real Hilton Hotels.

    It would be good at certain Hampton Inns with limited parking if they enforce it/guests respect it.
