Earn Hilton HHonors Points

Hilton HHonors™ is a loyalty program designed for guests to easily accumulate rewards and enjoy the free nights, upgrades or special packages when they stay at one of the 4,200 Hilton hotels across the globe.

Hilton HHonors allows you to earn HHonors Base Points, as well as HHonors Bonus points, through hotel stays, family reunion, rewards partners and Hilton credit cards.

How many HHonors points do I earn from hotel stays?

The number of HHonors Points you earn varies by Hilton hotel brands and your elite status. To earn points, just provide your Hilton HHonors account number when making a reservation, and when checking-in at participating hotels. In order to earn both base points and bonus points, make sure you choose your earning style as “points + points” in your account profile.

There are four tiers to the rewards program: Blue, Silver, Gold, and Diamond. When you enroll for the free membership program, you are automatically Blue status; and after 4 stays or 10 nights, you will be promoted to Silver status; 20 stays, 40 nights, or 75,000 base points to Gold status; and 30 stays, 60 nights, or 120,000 base points to Diamond status. When you reach elite status, you will automatically receive extra HHonors Bonus Points on all the Base Points you earn. You will receive a 15% bonus once you reach Silver status, a 25% bonus once you reach Gold status, and a 50% bonus once you achieve Diamond status. Below is how many points you can earn with each status.

The Fine Print

When earning Hilton HHonors points, you need to keep the following things in mind:

  • In order to earn bonus points, you need to select your earning style option to: points+points in your HHonors profile. If you don’t, you will only earn the base points not the bonus points.
  • Only the base points you earn will qualify for your elite status.
  • A Member may earn Base Points for up to two rooms per stay, if all eligible charges for both rooms are paid on one folio.
  • Eligible folio charges include room rate, food and beverage, telephone, laundry, pay-per-view movies, entertainment and recreational facilities, and other incidental charges charged to the Member’s room during the Member’s stay. Dining room or other charges not billed to a Member’s room during a stay are not eligible for credit.
  • Your points will expire if there is no activities in your account for 12 consecutive month.
