I've been Hilton Gold, and was plugging along this year focusing on keeping the Gold status. We really enjoy the room upgrades we've received as well as the executive lounge access (not to mention free WIFI). Low and behold, as I was projecting out our future stays this year, we'll actually only be about 18,000 points short of Diamond status. I have a few stays booked at some other chains (because of location or cost) and if I were to change then to Hilton stays, I'd be within 7,000 points. I've never been Diamond before and am trying to decide if it's worth the extra effort to achieve. What do you guys think?
