Elite Status Change AFTER reservation but before staying?

Hi All,

I am about to book a room as a Hilton Gold, and may get to Diamond by the time of my stay, I wanted to know if I would get the Diamond benefits for my stay applied automatically, or if I would have to call in to update the reservation?

Also - would this happen in the reverse too, where you could book a ton of reservations as your status was about to downgrade for future stays and keep the benefits you had at the time of booking?

Thanks,

BM

the status, that you have at check in, will count

Thanks for your reply. I thought that things like Diamond suite upgrade may have been confirmed prior to arrival?

If so are you saying that they would adjust to a regular Gold perks rather than the suite/upgraded room of a Diamond if the check-in status of the person had dropped to gold?

I have a side question (would rather not open up a new thread again)...

What if the reservation was made by my SO a HH Blue, but at checkin I whipped out my HH Diamond card and asked for the perks - would we qualify or would my Diamond status not count as the rez was in her name?
