Now More Ways to Qualify For Hilton HHonors Lifetime Diamond VIP Elite Level Status in 2017

I  just received word moments ago from my contact with Hilton Worldwide that as of January of 2017, Hilton will be granting Lifetime Diamond VIP elite level status to all members of the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program who have met the updated criteria as detailed below:

  • Members who have maintained Diamond VIP elite level status for at least ten years, which do not need to be consecutive

AND

  • Have stayed at least 1,000 nights — either paid or reward

OR

  • Have accumulated two million base points since joining the Hilton HHonors frequent guest loyalty program — but only base points are eligible, as bonus points earned via promotions, co-branded credit cards, or other means do not count towards VIP elite level status

Now More Ways to Qualify For Hilton HHonors Lifetime Diamond VIP Elite Level Status in 2017

The new criteria is that reward nights are now included in the minimum requirement of staying 1,000 nights; and base points now count towards Hilton HHonors Lifetime Diamond VIP elite level status instead of the minimum requirement of staying 1,000 nights.

Summary

Exactly two years ago tomorrow was when Hilton HHonors Lifetime Diamond VIP elite level status was first announced from Hilton Worldwide — and many members were thrilled about the news — but some members were not exactly happy about the original requirements in order to qualify.

A notification via e-mail message will be sent to members sometime in February of 2017 who have qualified for Lifetime Diamond VIP elite level status as of Saturday, December 31, 2016. You can contact the team at the Diamond Desk to find out whether or not you will qualify, as members of that team will be happy to help you.
