What is apparent from the above table is that Hilton at London gets us the best value. The value is further heightened by the fact that two guests can stay in that room against one return flight ticket. Okay, nice.but did you also take into account that although you require one return flight, you do need multiple nights at that Hilton! So the value suddenly drops that much. So you can equate maximum of three night stay with your return flight. This is where other factors take consideration. Factors like bonus points, discounts etc. for both will help you decide what you should accumulate.
