I have a free night certificate from the Barclaycard + shiny new Diamond status from the recent match offer, and am looking for a bit of inspiration on where to use it. A combination of great hotel and great status recognition is what I'm looking for. Where isn't really too much of a limiting factor as I'm likely going to be in Europe, USA/Canada, Asia, transiting Middle East, and possibly South America this year. I'm probably looking at a major city rather than a remote resort as I don't have lots of Hilton Points, but do have plenty for other chains. Don't worry - I'm not going to build a trip around one night (regardless of how good!), but my schedule is pretty flexible so I can usually tag a few days onto an existing trip. If anyone has experience of where's best in London, New York, Boston, Chicago, Washington DC, and eastern Canada that would be particularly helpful. Just a bit of fun really though, so feel free to think outside the box! Cheers!
