Hilton Worldwide announced it would extend the current elite status of members of its Hilton Honors guest loyalty program into early 2023 and pause the expiration of points in member accounts to the end of 2022.

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

The hotel chain last extended loyalty status and pushed back expiration dates in October 2021.

All Hilton Honors members with elite status will receive an extension of their status, bringing the expiration date to March 31, 2023.  The previous extension was set to expire on March 31, 2022.

The guest loyalty program will once again pause the expiration of Hilton Honors points to December 31, 2022.  Currently, a pause is in effect through December 31, 2021.

“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 at the hotelier who heads up customer engagement, loyalty, and partnerships.

The hotelier also announced new elite status requirements, keeping them lower than prior to the start of the pandemic but raising them somewhat when compared to the prior year.  Hilton Honors members can attain Silver status after seven nights, three stays, or 17,500 base points; Gold status after 28 nights, 14 stays, or 52,500 base points; or Diamond after 42 nights, 21 stays, or 84,000 base points.
