Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal: Multi-night standard award availability Jan-Feb 2023


There is currently excellent standard room availability at the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos Pedregal from January – early February, 2023. Almost the entire month of January is open  and many dates have 5+ consecutive nights available. That said, as of this writing, Valentine’s day weekend is also available as a standard award.

The WA Pedregal is considered by many to be Hilton’s best property in North America, and it’s certainly one of the most sought-after. Availability tends to drop in buckets but this might be the most that I’ve ever seen available in one month.

If you’re interested, book first and ask questions later as the availability we’re seeing right now probably won’t last more than 2-4 hours or so.

The Deal

Availability (as of writing)

Here’s the January –  Feb calendar currently. Remember that any night marked as 120,000 points is a standard award night, bookable with free night certificate:

How to see Hilton’s free night award calendar

If you want to find periods where you can book five nights at the standard award rate, Hilton makes that easy. When selecting your dates, choose any period but also select the ‘My Dates are Flexible’ check box. a screenshot of a calendarThen, under “special rates,” click the box that says “use points.”

On the search results screen, click ‘View Available Dates’ and the booking calendar will show you a monthly calendar displaying the nightly cost for the property that you choose. Many starting dates go for more than 400,000-1,0000,000 per night due to Premium Room Rewards being the only option available, but there are many days where you can check in and have each night cost “only” 120,000 points per night.

Quick Thoughts

We can go through long stretches of Premium Room Rewards being the only room types bookable with points on 90%+ of dates at the Waldorf Astoria Los Cabos. Every so often, lots of standard award availability gets released. Today is one such day.

As of writing, there are many dates with standard award nights available, including a few with 4-5 night increments. That latter point can be particularly useful since Hilton offers the 5th night free on award stays for anyone who has Silver status or higher. Now that standard award nights at this property cost 120,000 points per night, saving 20% off of a five night stay is helpful, indeed.

The Waldorf Astoria Pedregal is incredible well-reviewed and highly sought-after for award bookings. Even standard rooms are 856 square feet and have fireplaces, ocean view plunge pools and private balconies. I imagine that all of this award availability will quickly get booked though, so get your reservation(s) in ASAP.

I’m here now, and it’s incredible. Gracious service, amazing welcome, beautiful rooms. So many extra touches like the tequila in room, daily afternoon snacks delivered, and personable staff wIth the perfect level of attentiveness. Spotless property, excellent landscaping, calm, peaceful. The food is fresh and well prepared, we’ve tried three restaurants so far. We enjoy the Grand Wailea, this property is similar in elegance and quality, but with newer, contemporary Mexican design, more of an “adult” property, and the service is extraordinary. An excellent use of certs, and we’re additionally using an Amex $100 off 500 offer for all our spend.

The other poster with all the complaints must just have had very bad luck. We are having the completely opposite experience. Even regarding the birds at breakfast – a falconer and his hawk just passed through the breakfast tables, greeting people and explaining that the hawk keeps other birds away.


Why do gringos love going to Mexico so much?


Took you long enough 😀


There is a BOATLOAD of availability December 31 – February 16 with almost every day having a standard room availability.


I just got back 3 weeks ago from a 2-night stay here using certs and it was probably the most disappointing hotel stay I’ve ever had and was frankly a waste of my certs.

Hopefully I just had incredibly bad luck, but here’s what I experienced:
– My concierge emailed me the day before to say my room would be ready at 1pm. I was staying elsewhere in Baja before the stay, so I came down earlier than I otherwise was planning to. Turns out the room wasn’t ready until 3:15.
– Their concierge service is supposed to use a text based system where you can text them whenever you want something. This was never explained to me until 3 days after checkout when I got a text message welcoming me to the hotel and telling me to text if I needed anything.
– I only had housekeeping one day, but they left a wet dirty rag on the counter in my bathroom partially draped over the “clean” hand towels.
– At breakfast, the table next to mine was left un-bussed while several birds fought over the remnants of people’s meals
– Having the personal plunge pool on the balcony is great, but it is also the worst thing about the hotel because the water pump is running right outside your bedroom window all the time. At night, the noise from the pump was so loud that you couldn’t hear the waves or wind through the palm trees, so it didn’t really allow for a very relaxing experience.

Maybe I just had bad luck, but I felt like I got more value when I used an expiring cert 6 months ago at a Home2 Suites.


Just got back from a 4 night stay last weekend. Very nice property, although as expected the price for everything else (food & beverage, spa, etc) is on the high end (including high taxes which would apply anywhere in Mexico). Would definitely recommend though if you can swing it. Otherwise, the Cape (Hyatt) is also fantastic.


Very different Vibe between the two. The Cape I would say had the best Globalist Breakfast I can remember (fantastic food everywhere on property) – its a little more dense (rooms are large but pool area has more music/fun vibe going on). its not spring break by any means but if you’re coming with kids its probably not the best.

Waldorf felt a little more formal – the rooms are similar size to the Cape (maybe a bit more dated decor vs the Cape feeling Modern) but all rooms at WA have plunge pools (they’re nice but I don’t spend much time in them.). Staff couldn’t have been nicer at the Waldorf. Bigger pool and more spread out in general.

I think I had similar amount of fun but if I was paying cash theres no way I’d justify paying 2x prices as Waldorf. Waldorf gets appropriate recognition but I feel like the Cape is really underrated. Even on points, the cost of drinks/food/spa at WA felt about 1.5x compared to the Cape and I wouldn’t say it was much different in quality.


Enjoy your $30 glass of champagne. I’m currently in Los Cabos and travel here frequently. It’s a beautiful spot but you’re going to pay. I’ve stayed at the Grand Solmar and Playa Grande which are on the same beach and offer 1 and 2 bedroom suites. It’s on the Pacific side so don’t go in the ocean,


There was nothing left within an hour of posting


probably won’t last more than 24 hours or so”

It didn’t even last 2 hours. Longest stretch left is 2 days and there’s only 1 left.


Thanks for posting, just got two nights in March! Perfect timing, my $15k Surpass certificate just posted today. Now I need to keep an eye out for flights.


Ha, saw this yesterday and booked 4 nights this morning using four free nights certificates January 18-22. I didn’t realize how rare it was. JFK – SJD is just $313 round-trip nonstop on AA.


Changed my reservation to WA Maldives instead, February 22-26


where saw it?


Nowhere, I was looking on my own because I had a certificate expiring soon and because it’s $2,000/night, lol.
