I have been at a Homewood Suites for about a month and a half now and am not scheduled to check out for several more months. I should have been silver after 10 days, but since I was not checked out until a month passed, I only hit silver last week. Today I requested to be checked out and back in to get the Gold status that I rightfully earned last week, and was told they could not do so. If I do not change hotels (which I am seriously considering) I will be staying four months straight at a Hilton property. If corporate "wins", I will be only a silver member the entire time because their nights do not post until check out. I am very disappointed to find how little they seem to value a traveler willing to put that much time and money into their hotels. The hotel management has stated they intend to call corporate and try to get my status raised tomorrow. If they are unsuccessful, I will jump ship to Marriott which gives credit for nights as they occur. As it currently stands, it seems Marriott cares more about customer loyalty than Hilton.
