We recently provided some assistance to an euflyer reader seeking speedy Hilton status, and thought it worth a reminder that instant Silver status remains available to all, with the added option of a fast-track to Hilton HHonors Gold status.
To gain the Silver status you simply need to enter your HHonors details (or sign up if you are not already a member) here.
While Hilton Silver is not the greatest Hotel status ever, you are being offered it for nothing here, and there are distinct benefits (listed below). In addition, Hilton Gold is widely regarded as one of the very best mid-tier elite statuses, and I can personally vouch for that. I’d reasonably estimate that it has saved me thousands of Euros in the 5 or so years that I’ve held it. The free breakfast alone will generally save you a small fortune on each hotel stay. A summary of the key benefits of Gold and Silver is below, and you can see the full benefits here.
Our list of all Hilton special offers and Hilton promo codes is available on our dedicated page, here.
Silver status benefits are as follows:
- 15% bonus on base points earned
- 5th night free on awards
- Late check-out
- Complimentary fitness centre & health club access
- Free bottled water
- (unofficially) likely preferential treatment on the specific room assigned
As you will see, the offer is specifically targeted at Accenture employees, but it works for anyone.
Upon sign-up to the Silver status, you will also automatically be enrolled in a Hilton HHonors Gold Status fast-track scheme, which will grant you Gold status if you make four stays at a Hilton hotel within 90 days of signing up for this offer.
The benefits of Hilton HHonors Gold status are substantial, including all the silver benefits above (except for a 25% rather than 15% points bonus), plus:
- Free breakfast
- Guaranteed room upgrade
- Frequent upgrades to Executive rooms (with Executive Lounge access), regardless of the room purchased
- Free internet access
Anyone staying with their partner/companion/wife/husband at a Hilton absolutely must sign up to Hilton HHonors – the “second guest stays free” promotion, available to all members, including the lowest Blue tier, can save you a lot of money.
