I'm starting to put pen to paper on my upcoming Hilton stay and am trying to understand where I'll end up for elite status as well as the recent Visa Infinite 40,000 point bonus. First of all, reward stays. I had thought I had read in one of the blogs that reward nights/stays count towards elite status (which was a reason that SPG was following suit). However I though by reading the fine print on hhonors.com that they don't count. Does anyone know for sure? In addition, even if they do or don't count for elite status, do you think they'd count as a stay for the Visa Infinite "Stay 4 times by 5/31 and get 40,000 bonus points"? Secondly, I booked a week at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Hawaii for my wife and I and my parents. My understanding is I'll get base points credit for both rooms, but only singular credit for the stay and nights. Also, probably single credit for the airline miles. How about elite bonus? I didn't see it mentioned. Single or Double Bonus. To add complexity, my wife and I are taking 2 days off in the middle of the week to go to Maui. I'd like to make sure we get 3 stay credits (Hawaiian Village, then Maui, then Hawaiian Village). Any bets as to whether it will all show up correctly, or in my favor?
