Fast Track To Hilton Gold Status

Our site may contain affiliate links. Read Advertiser Disclosure policy here.

As the new year begins so do new travel patterns. Many of us know where our travels will take us in 2012 and for others it is yet to be determined. If you find your self visiting a Hilton next year and don’t have status this post may help get you either Gold or Diamond status quicker at Hilton.

In the past I’ve posted successes with a status match or challenge to other programs including:

Fast Track To Hilton Gold

  • Register your Hilton Honors number here
  • Select your fast track start date
  • Complete 4 qualifying stays or 9 nights within 90 days from your start date
  • Start using your Gold Elite benefits

If you already have status from another hotel program consider 6 easy steps to request a higher status match or challenge.

Six Easy Steps To Status Match Or Challenge

  1. Determine the target program where you would like to a status match or challenge
  2. Evaluate status levels and determine what is a reasonable request for the program to match
  3. Call the hotel’s loyalty program number and ask what options they have for you to accelerate status
  4. Be sure to tell the loyalty program why you are interested in their program
  5. Provide evidence of your equivalent loyalty status
  6. Fulfill any other requirements they have to complete the status match or challenge
On a side note I’m making progress on the next few trip reports. I’ve formatted the pictures for the rest of the trip to Italy and am working on the details. The report from our stay at the Pitrizza hotel on Sardinia and Westin Excelsior Rome will be posted soon.

  1. Hi..on the link you provided to register for the promotion, there are discount codes for MVP. Will I be asked to present some form of identification or ID to be able to use that discount code when I check in? In addition, what exactly is the MVP? Thank you 🙂

  2. Thanks. I’m presently Hilton Gold. Can I use fast track in 2012 to ensure Gold status for 2013?

  3. Hi iannoronha – Once a member reaches Gold VIP status, it will remain in effect through April of the second calendar year following the period in which the member qualified.

  4. Do you receive gold status during the 90 day period or only after you have met the required stays/nights?

  5. Does staying at overseas Hilton’s count towards? The 1st week of Mar I will be 4-nights in Kuala Lumpur then in mid-April I will be 5-nights in London. Or does this only work when staying at US Hilton’s?
