Arrow Strategy for earning rollover nights during covid-19

Got a question to those who have recently stayed here…
As explained in the letter above, cleaning is only per request. Does that mean that one can book the room - check in - and not stay there for seven nights (in order to get the night credit), but only physically stay there for the first night?
Coming for a place with no Hilton properties around, and the double night offer is too good to pass
Thanks
HJ

This is not an issue at most hotels.

Just say that you do not know which nights you will be there, but you have booked the 34 nights just in case.

Or however long you are booking for.....

I suspect a few will do a long mattress run.....

Any beyond 60 will roll over to 2022/23 - I think!

Thanks GentleGiant
Want to keep diamond this easy way, and GBP55 is a very nice price.
Have seen EUR56 at the Hampton Inn Berlin - also a nice price. Just have to look after the national travel guidance around Europe - just to be sure

If u are already Diamond why stay at al, isnt status staying what you were on 3/1/20 remaining thru 2021? So you wont need any stays till 21 for 22

Correct - current diamond status expires 3/2022.
Given Covid-19, I've only had 15 night in 2020. These will be rolled-over to count as qualifying nights in 2021 (towards 2022 status). However this double night counts (plus roll-over) is a cheap way to get status towards 3/2023.Nobody knows how 2021 will be - unfortunately I don't personally expect any softening of entry requirements, although I really need to get to a US outlet soon

Double nights promo and rollover to 2021, so easier qualification by putting the nights in now and securing Diamond for 2022.

As for the question about staying for an extended stay, the letter I received mentioned that they did housekeeping once a week for longer stays. Just tell them you don't want it as you won't be around for some of the time. They certainly will be happy to save time / expense on it at the moment.

Got it, but doesnt Roll Over start with the 61st night? so if say a person has only 20 nights thus far in 20, the next 20 wont help since that would bring them to a total of 60 nights. So for 2022 only those nights after the 60th would be of any help. Now if a person had 50 nights thus far so their 6th night would start counting for Roll Over

Hilton updated the roll over policy for this year:
UPDATE: For 2020, ALL Members will be eligible to roll over all nights earned from stays in 2020.

Basically 2020 and 2021 are now considered a single year for the purposes of earning status. So your status earned in 2019 is good for 2020+1 (until March 2022) and your status earned in 2020+1 is good for 2022 (until March 2023).

Indeed. So anything earned now will go towards status for 2022/23.

In theory (I think) if you hit 60 nights or 30 stays in this year you would have Diamond secured for 2022/23 as anything earned this year will be carried over to next requiring no stays next year.

As prices will be higher and I guess no double stay credit you might as well take advantage now with a mattress run.
