Hilton Explain their Room Rate
How the discount works
Since we released the Hilton rooms link there has been a bit of confusion about how the bookings, rates and discount work.
We asked the Hilton to comment on this. This is their reply:
"The UK Games Expo rates are based on 20% discount off the hotels published Bed & Breakfast rate. These rates are based on demand, hence the cheapest rooms may be available the further out a booking is made. The rates will be different depending on the length of stay and arrival day. These rates may be updated 4 times per day.
The published rate shown on the Hilton website is Room only with a cancellation of 1 day prior to arrival. There are also fully pre-payable rates available with varying discounts off the easy cancellation rates, together with other packages.
The published rates are exactly the same as shown via online travel agents; eg Booking.com and Expedia. However when booking via online travel agents the Hhonors benefits are not available."

The Hilton report that some 450 of their rooms have already been reserved.
