GIVEAWAY: Two Free Nights At Any Curio By Hilton Hotel

It goes without saying that I love loyalty programs, though I also love staying at unique hotels. For a long time the two seemed to largely be mutually exclusive, where a vast majority of chain hotels also felt cookie cutter. One cool trend we’re seeing among the major hotel groups is that they’re introducing more brands focused on unique, local hotels. One of those brands is Curio by Hilton.

What are Curio hotels like?

Here’s how Hilton describes their Curio Collection of hotels:

Free of a prescriptive build design, the hotels selected to join the Curio collection themselves define the brand. From the beaches of Southern California, to the Southern charm of Dallas, to the Art Deco-era luxury of Germany, these hotels are one-of-a-kind with individuality as a common thread.

As of now there are just over 30 Curio properties around the world, though the brand is quickly growing.

We’ve reviewed a few Curio hotels in the past when they were affiliated with different programs, including:

Obviously the elite benefits will be different now, but those should give you a sense as to the types of properties under the Curio umbrella.

Curio is partnering with Gavin DeGraw

Curio recently announced a partnership with Grammy-nominated recording artist Gavin DeGraw, as part of their “Cities By Curio” concept. The idea is that since Curio hotels are all about providing local experiences, the website features curated itineraries for exploring the cities in which they have hotels. As part of this new partnership, they have some itineraries put together by Gavin DeGraw.

For example, here’s the Gavin DeGraw guide to Boston. I love the format of these guides, as they’re basically giving you a 48 hour itinerary of what you can do in a particular city. This reminds me of the “3 Perfect Days” articles that United used to have in their Hemispheres Magazine. It’s a cool concept.

  1. Vintro Hotel in Miami Beach would be my Curio choice. Who wouldn’t want to stay in a modern and trendy boutique hotel on SoBe.

  2. So many amazing places to stay! Probably the Alrayyan location as it will get me the furthest away from the cold winter in NY

  3. Jewel Dunn’s River Beach Resort & Spa, Ocho Rios,Curio Collection by Hilton

    My wife would love this for our anniversary!

  4. I’ve been wanting to get back to New York to visit some friends who live there, so I’d go with the Renwick.

  5. I just came back from two amazing weekend nights at the Boulders yesterday…counting down the days until I can repeat that trip!

  6. The Renwick in NYC. I need to clear out of DC for Inauguration Weekend and am looking for a quick escape to NYC.

  7. Which Curio hotel would you most want to stay at? Most definitely the Reichshof Curio in Hamburg, Germany. Always wanted to stay there, but rates were not affordable at all. That would be a great way to stay there. Fingers crossed!

  8. okay anyone else having trouble with the rafflecopter blue button? I tried three browsers and get nothing except ‘visit One Mile at a time on Facebook…to get credit for this entry take a trip to our facebook page”, I click the blue ‘Visit us’ button and nothing happens – so… I’ll give up now

  9. We would love to return to the Anselmo Buenos Aires, located in San Telmo and facing Plaza Dorrego, with its weekend market and photogenic tango dancers. The property, not without a few minor quirks, is wonderful and the employees made us feel very welcome.

  10. The LondonHouse Chicago. I’ll be running the marathon there this coming October and it would be an awesome place to stay!

  11. One of my best friends lives in Boston. I’d love to visit her and have a girls staycation at the Ames Hotel Boston!

  12. Reicshof Hamburg — visited there when a colleague was staying there recently and it’s beautiful. And the suites are big for Europe.

  13. I’d love to stay in the The Renwick in NYC. But to be honest, would be happy with most of the Curio hotels.

  14. I’d love to win a stay at the Renwick Hotel in New York City!!

    Thank you and Happy Holidays an New Year!

  15. Any of the Jamaica ones would work for me as southwest flies there and last time we went we lost/or they disappeared all of our souvenirs so would love to go go back.

  16. The Anselmo Buenos Aires is tops on my list. I’m debating if I want to make it a goal to visit all of them though.

  17. I want to stay at every one of them. But, I expect I will be staying at the Lexington KY location soon, as I travel there for business at least once a month.

  18. Like everyone else, I’m gonna chime in with the LondonHouse in Chicago (my former home and my beloved city).

  19. I’d love to stay at The Ames Boston by Curio. Boston is on my travel list. I’m a history nerd, so staying in a building built in 1893 would be the perfect base for Boston adventures.

  20. I’d love to stay at The Highlands in Dallas. I used to drive by it on my way to work and would love to see the view of downtown from the top floor!

  21. I’d head to the Hotel Phillips in KC. I’m due for some good BBQ and am not going to have any luck here in DC

  22. The Anselmo BA was fanstatic! Also liked LH in Chicago. Definitely the best hilton brand

    Would love to try Boulders or Jewel!

  23. The Renwick in New York would be my top choice. By the way, I spent a few nights at the Boulders and ,just say that I really enjoyed my stay!

  24. Look. Actually I would be I treated in staying at the new curio hotel the Sanya Yazhou Bay resort cuz I’m really curious and the area is supposed to be renown for its historic beauty.

  25. It’s really cold here in NYC so I would go to the islands, catch some Vitamin Sea and stay at Jewel Paradise Cove Resort & Spa Runaway Bay.

  26. St. Louis Union Station Hotel

    Sounds like a fascinating property with real character, would love to stay there with my girlfriend and visit some old friends in St Louis

  27. I would most want to stay in the Anselmo Buenos Aires, because I’d love to return to that beautiful Argentine city! The hotel seems to evoke the pace and style of the San Telmo neighborhood and it would be really exciting to stay there.

  28. Really, I’d stay at any of the properties. So many of them look so good. But Miami is probably #1.

  29. I’d first want to try the Curio in my town, Philadelphia. It looks like a real nice hotel, in a great location, taking over for what was once a great hotel, with a brand new rebranding, sounds cool.

  30. Curio in San Pedro Belize. Its not open yet and i cant find an opening date. But was walking down the main street and BOOM, a Curio is being built up there in the same complex as some nice luxury villas.

  31. I’ve stayed at LondonHouse & will be staying at Waterstone Boca Raton later this month. I’d like to use the free nights at the all-inclusive Jewel Paradise Cove Resort & Spa Runaway Bay – free water sports and 2 excursions included!

  33. I’d love to go to the Ames Hotel in Boston actually, I have a ton of friends there and I haven’t yet made it to the east coast!

  35. Errr… Despite travelling the world pretty much permanently, we’re from Sydney… so are hard-wired to go to the opening of an envelope for free entertainment… Our pick of the hotels would have to be The Renwick in New York City.

  36. Jewel paradise cove in Jamaica. I’ve never stayed at a Curio and this would be my first choice. My second choice would be The Highland Dallas so that I could also visit the Dallas Zoo and see Komodo Dragons.

  37. Definitely the Anselmo Buenos Aires. My gf and I have always wanted to go to Argentina. Red wine and steak, here we come!

  38. La Jolla. Going to San Diego next summer, would be great to get a couple of nights at the Curio. Would be happy to write up a review as well after my stay.

  39. I would definitely love to try The Reichshof in Hamburg! I shall be visiting Hamburg in January and this would be an amazing product to try out!

  40. I’ve only stayed at one Curio hotel so far – The Franklin in Chapel Hill and loved it. I travel the world “collecting” Conrad hotels. After one Curio stay, I now want to collect Curio hotels. I would love to return to The Franklin in January to spend my birthday with my son.

  41. I love the idea of Madison House in Connecticut! It reminds me of Ocean House at Watch Hill and I’d love to see that area of the coountry and take it easy.

  42. Jewel Paradise Cove Resort & Spa Runaway Bay is my pick for sure…LondonHouse is my absolute favorite hotel in Chicago and they have the best hotel lobby bar! Christine is the best Bartender at any hotel I’ve stayed at!

  45. Waterstone Resort & Marina in Boca Raton Fl as it’s near my in-laws and I’ve wanted to stay there and visit them.

  46. I like the Boulders Resort & Spa in Arizona. I’m intrigued by the modern Southwest decor and the landscape looks amazing!

  47. Where? Any would be a pleasure to try, especially Europe since I think they’d be the most unique. If in the US, the Diplomat since I’ve been there before it was Curio.

  48. Have to make a trip to Poland this summer, so the Reichshof Hamburg would be a nice place to cure some jetlag.

  49. al rayyan hotel Doha as I have a 2 night stay in DOH coming up and I’ve never tried out any Curio hotel yet

  50. Unconventional as it may be, the Hotel Alex Johnson in Rapid City. It’s a place I’d likely not visit otherwise – and who can say no to Chubby Chipmunk chocolates in the lobby?

  51. There are multiple Hotels that seem absolutely worth it, but at the moment I’d love to stay at the LondonHouse in Chicago 🙂

  52. Would love to check out Boulders Resort & Spa, Curio Collection by Hilton.
    Combining world-class service, luxurious amenities, elegant accommodations, and Southwestern flair, this resort is perfect .

  53. I’d love to go to Jewel Dunn’s River Beach Resort & Spa, Ocho Rios. My husband loves Jamaica and I’ve never been.

  54. I would like to try The Diplomat Beach Resort Hollywood, Curio Collection by Hilton. Looks like a cool place to stay.

  55. Boulders Resort & Spa, Curio Collection by Hilton looks like a dream! I would love to visit on my honeymoon this year! We are looking for a “non-traditional” low-frills, relaxing, honeymoon in a remote area. This seems to fit the bill — we would be so excited to go!
