I got this on the Northcrest Manor map - House of Blossoms is easier because it has like 40 more loot items to pick up.
edit - added a House of Blossom 8+mil video

No matter which map you choose, take your time and look for loot first then try to plan out a strategy to pick them up. The normal loot items are always in the same spot.

Special Hunt vs Chain & Gain - to each their own I say
Chain & Gain -
Pros: no time limit, no barred doors - good for searching the area to find loot and getting a feel for the map.
Cons: fewer loot items (which = points), making up for fewer items means leaving guards be (which = going slower resulting in not as many quick pick bonus points), and finally to get a good score you will need to do basically a flawless run - get all the loot, take no damage, do not get spotted, and make it to the exit (even then I am not sure its possible to get 5 mil on the Manor)
Special Hunt -
Pros: more loot = more points, higher chain = even more points!
Cons: Time limit - you will need to be fast and pick up loot along the way to keep the timer up.
It's a good idea to take out all the guards (which = less points), this allows a free roam of the level to quickly get to the special loot.
Some doors are barred, causing the need to find and use alternate routes.
Finally you will need a good idea of the level to know how to get to certain places, which means several runs.

The majority of your points come from picking up loot in 1 long chain. From the time you pick up one item you have 60 sec to get another, some guards have items to grab too that count. If you grab an item in under 10 seconds from the previous one you get a bonus, based on the multiplier, so try to go fast.

The normal loot item locations do not change so be sure to remember where you find them for future playthroughs.

When picking a lock use focus to slow time down. When you you enter a room try to grab all items out in the open first before trying to pick a lock or open a frame - these two things will more than likely burn up more than 10 seconds causing you to lose out on the quick pick bonus.

Guards - each guard has a patrol pattern, learn them! Some stay to a specific room, others wander the halls. Avoid being spotted - an open confrontation takes more time to deal with and also can cause more points to be lost. Be sure to distract guards if you want to avoid them.
Chain & Gain - try to only pick pocket them, for the high scores you should avoid knocking out/killing them because it will lose you a lot of points. On the Manor, all guards knocked out is - 330,000 points. House of Blossom all guards is 390,000 points.
Special Loot Hunt - Knock out the guards, (Holding down RB will make the player hold on to and automatically loot the body, hit B to drop) so you can run to each Special Loot drop quickly.

Lights - Try to avoid taking out lights unless it is just to distract a guard. This takes up more time than it saves in my opinion. Use swoop to traverse areas that are lit up. Also distract guards patrolling the bright hallways by shooting arrows or tossing breakables behind them instead.

The Manor level is more of a challenge for the 5 million points, as of 3/1/14 I have the highest score for both Chain & Gain and Special Loot Hunt modes.
Chain & Gain - 3.8 mil with 126/133 loot and 1/4 objectives complete. Not sure if a flawless run would net you the 5 mil or not... I will keep trying.
Special Loot Hunt - 5.2 mil with 129/133 loot, 20/20 special loot, and 3/4 objectives complete.

For the House of Blossom map you have a lot more room for error. Essentially after taking out all the guards you will only need to find about 150 loot, in 1 chain, and make it to the exit. If you cannot find 150 check out my video for locations on most of the 176 loot on the map.

I you find the loot items I missed let me know where they are :) Thanks!

Good Luck!
