Hilton Worldwide announced it would extend the current elite status of members of its Hilton Honors guest loyalty program into early 2022 and extend the expiration of points in member accounts to the end of 2021.

The move comes amidst the coronavirus pandemic-induced downturn in travel.

Members with Silver, Gold, and Diamond elite status who were slated to lose their status or see a downgrade in 2020 or 2021 will maintain their elite status through March 31, 2022.

“We want to continue supporting our loyal Hilton Honors members when they are ready to make new travel memories again,” said Mark Weinstein, the executive who heads up customer engagement, loyalty, and partnerships at the hotelier.

The hotel chain is also reducing the number of stays, nights, and Base Points required to earn status by 50% in 2021.  This means that a member seeking Gold status would have to have 20 nights, ten stays, or 37,500 Base Points as opposed to 40 nights, 20 stays, or 75,000 Base Points, respectively.   In addition, as previously announced, all 2020 nights will roll over into 2021.
