Hilton Honors Diamond Status Extension Returns In 2023


Hilton launched 2017 a one-time Diamond Status Extension program for Honors members that had held the status for a minimum of three years, consumed at least 250 nights, or earned more than 500,000 base points.

Executive Traveler gave us a tip that the program is set to return in 2023 but that the exact qualification criteria are still unclear. They are not, however, and we have been able to confirm them.

Hilton Honors Changes For 2023

Hilton Honors 2023 Policy Changes


I am glad that Hilton has decided to reactivate the one-time Diamond status extension program launched in 2017, which was put on pause for the past three years due to the pandemic and automatic extensions.

It helps established members who see a drop in stays or nights for a year.

I am still not 100% convinced that Hilton wouldn’t offer additional status support (read extensions) for members in China due to never-ending lockdowns and lack of business travel activity.

Here are the terms and conditions of this offer:

A Diamond Status Extension will be awarded to select Hilton Honors members, who are current Diamond members and have earned Diamond Status for at least 3 years (consecutive or non-consecutive) and who have completed stays totaling at least 250 paid and reward nights OR who are current Diamond members and have earned Diamond Status for at least 3 years (consecutive or non-consecutive) and who have earned at least 500,000 Base Points over life of membership, pursuant to the standard Hilton Honors Terms & Conditions.

To be eligible, a Hilton Honors member must meet the stated criteria and currently be a Diamond Member. Points earned via bonuses, promotions and/or co-branded credit cards do not count towards meeting the Diamond Status Extension criteria. Qualifying Hilton Honors Members may enact this benefit once throughout the lifetime of their membership. The year during which a Hilton Honors member used a status match to achieve Diamond Status will not count as one of the three years of Diamond status required to meet the criteria. If a Member elects to use this offer, their Diamond status will extend for an additional year beyond when it would have otherwise expired. Once a Member elects to use this one-time offer and the extension is applied to their account, this action is considered final and is not reversible. At the end of the extension time period, Hilton Honors members will need to complete the requirements to maintain Diamond status pursuant to the standard Hilton Honors Terms & Conditions. If Diamond requirements are not met, Hilton Honors members will be placed in the appropriate tier pursuant to the standard Hilton Honors Terms & Conditions. Once earned, standard Hilton Honors Terms & Conditions apply.

A Diamond Status Extension is granted at the discretion of Hilton Honors Worldwide, LLC and may be ended, or amended with or without notice or compensation, at Hilton Honors’ sole discretion.
