    Just received this email from Hilton, noting that it’s going to take more stays/nights/base$ to qualify for Gold & Diamond status starting January 1, 2013. It’s now going to take 20 stays/40 nights/ 75,000 Base Points for Gold status; 30 stays/60 nights/120,000 Base Points for Diamond status. :( Gulp!

    Dear From NYC,

    Thank you for making Hilton HHonors™ your guest loyalty program. With ten distinct hotel brands, you have endless ways to experience the benefits of being an HHonors member.

    Over the past few years, we have expanded the benefits for our guests with Gold and Diamond status. They can now enjoy benefits such as complimentary space-available room upgrades, high-speed Internet access, breakfast, and up to a 50% bonus on all Base Points earned on every stay.

    Periodically, we need to adapt our program based on industry trends. For the past ten years, we have not changed the qualifications for Gold and Diamond status. As of January 1, 2013, we will adjust the requirements to qualify for elite status in 2014. To qualify for Gold status, HHonors members must complete 20 stays, 40 nights, or attain 75,000 Base Points within the calendar year. To qualify for Diamond status in 2014, members must complete 30 stays, 60 nights, or attain 120,000 Base Points in 2013. All other tier level qualifications, as well as elite status received through Hilton HHonors credit cards and partners, will remain the same.

    We thank you for your loyalty, and we look forward to seeing you at one of our 3,900 hotels and resorts in 2013.

    Sincerely,

    Based on the time signature of both, think I was there first. (Just joking around!)

    Just realized his came through this past Tuesday! They kept me on the hook longer!
