Gifting Gold status

Hello,
with 60+ nights in a calender year a member can gift Gold status to one other member. I will achieve those 60 nights with my very last stay in 2018 at the end of december. So the nights shall show up at the very beginning of 2019. Will i still be able to gift gold status to someone or is the year end / beginning date a problem?

Yes, you have until the end of January to gift status.

Hello,

yes i do. If he / she does not want the status i will get back on here.

As far as i understand one can gift the status each year again if he has 60+ nights in that particular calender year, is that correct? So it is not a once in a liftetime option?

Good luck.
I tried to gift gold status.
Nothing happens after the five workdays.

Then:
Mail to the Diamond Desk - no answer
Mail to the Diamond Desk again - no answer
Paging Lauren -> now there is help
Tried it again with the gift - nothing happens
Mail to an European HHonors Adress - oh, an answer after ten days. First they need some datas to identify me, then we will see...

Frustrating!

I tried once, didn't work. Phoned Diamond Desk and mentioned it. Told me to re-apply. Re-applied - done within 3 days.

I am a diamond Hilton status. If i make a reservation in my name and add my friend as an additional guest, then he should get free breakfast at Doubletrees, and any other diamond perks, correct?

why can’t I just keep repeating this strategy? Why do I need to gift Hilton status at all?

Nope...YMMV. HH isnít required to provide your perks to someone else if youíre not there.
