Hilton Honors is the rewards program for Hilton Hotels & Resorts. Members can earn points for staying at Hilton properties, as well as through participating partners such as credit card companies and rental car agencies. Points can be redeemed for free nights at Hilton hotels, room upgrades, and other perks. Additionally, members can also earn elite status by staying a certain number of nights or earning a certain number of points each calendar year, which provides additional benefits such as free breakfast and late check-out.
Hilton Honors has four membership tiers: Member, Silver, Gold, and Diamond.
This is the basic level of membership and requires no minimum number of stays or points.
Silver status is earned by staying 4 or more nights in a calendar year or earning 10,000 base points in a calendar year. Silver members receive a 15% point bonus, a dedicated customer service phone line, and a 2 PM late check-out.
To earn Hilton Honors Silver status, you can either stay a certain number of nights at Hilton properties within a calendar year or by reaching a certain number of base points through stays, spending on a Hilton Honors credit card or through other activities such as renting a car or booking a vacation package. The exact requirements may vary depending on the program or promotion. You can check the Hilton Honors website for more information on earning Silver status and the specific requirements for doing so.
Gold status is earned by staying 20 or more nights in a calendar year or earning 40,000 base points in a calendar year. Gold members receive a 25% point bonus, a dedicated customer service phone line, a 2 PM late check-out, and a free breakfast.
Diamond status is earned by staying 30 or more nights in a calendar year or earning 60,000 base points in a calendar year. Diamond members receive a 50% point bonus, a dedicated customer service phone line, a 2 PM late check-out, a free breakfast, room upgrades, and executive lounge access.
It's worth noting that, starting in 2022, Hilton Honors will be adding a new level of membership called "Diamond Elite" that will be obtained by staying 60+ nights or earning 120,000+ points, and it will include some perks such as free night awards and a 48 hours room guarantee.
