    ALERT - If you're planning to book a hotel reward this year, see if your hotel is on the list. If your hotel is on the list for a category increase, book your stay at the lower rate before April 30. ;)

    A full list of hotels and their new category number can be found here - http://hhonors1.hilton.com/ts/en_US/hh/media/pdf/HiltonHHonors_QuickReference_040312.pdf

    I can't believe some of the Embassy Suites are now a 7, what a joke.

    Call it "grade inflation." Reading between the lines, upgrades do not reflect actual value but rather an attempt to discourage the use of "free rooms" at those properties.
