Free Gold Honors status?

I may be starting to travel again and is there any way to receive free Gold honors status? I had it for years, but stopped traveling for medical issues. I am not cleared, so I will be traveling again soon. Rather not have to pay 95 dollars if I do not have to get the Gold status.

Open to options. Thank you.

I just submitted proof to Hilton that I have gold from Marriott. Here's hoping they'd honor my status match.

If you mean what Marriott now calls Gold, that's about equivalent to Hilton Silver. So I wish you luck, but if they know what Marriott Gold really means, I have my doubts they'd give you an outright status match. A challenge perhaps, but then you'd have to compare it to the MVP challenge mentioned in the post above.

They upgraded me to Gold since I had Gold Elite with Marriott.
