The definitive answer to this question comes from Hilton Honors Ambassador:

A higher level contact than I reached out to previously confirms that both the stay and nights that began in 2019 on a crossover such as this will count for 2020.

My apologies for the misinformation....

Best regards,

I am one stay away from making gold this year and qualifying for the nifty "each stay qualifies as 2" bonus for the first quarter next year. I am going to be in Orlando beginning Dec 31st, and want to know if my stay on Dec 31st will count towards 2001, or will it be a stay in 2002? I want to make sure I qualify for this bonus!

You are in luck you will actually get a stay for each year( assuming the stay will be more than 2 days) this has happened to me the last three years when I have spent New Years at a Hilton property.

My own experience with yearend stays has been that I get stay credit in the year that I check out, not the year that I check in. Anyone else?

This might be worth a call to HH to confirm.

(edited to add that I didn't see MIKESILV's reply until after I posted. It sounds like his answer would certainly be great for you.)

Make 2 reservations if possible one ending say 2002 and other starting 2003 and you may get a stay in both years. Worked for me more than once before.
Mike
Edited to add , Sorry did not notice you had made the stay already, NEXT TIME make 2 reservations.

Staying Dec31-Jan1; which year gets credited?

I know this question has been answered here, but I can't seem to find it.

If I have a stay where I check in in 2003 and check out in 2004, is it considered a 2003 or a 2004 stay for stay credit purposes?

I have no answers, but I'll pile on with a related question

If I am doing a promo for x stays by, say, 1/15/04, does a stay that starts the evening of 1/15/04 count? Or is it checkout date that matters?

It counts for both years - at least it did the last time I did it, for a stay from 12/31/01 to 1/1/02.

Yes it will count for both years, I have gotten credit for both for 4 out of 5 years now for a New years stay.

As to the question of a stay extending past the end of promo date you will get the credit for the date of check-in. In my case I originally made two separate resevations but the property combined them anyway.
Suggest you keep records in both instances so you can verify the details with HHonors.

I was just about to post a similar question because I have my 16th stay of this year coming up for 12/26-1/1 and it dawned on me all of a sudden that I might not get credit for the stay until 2004! I just reviewed HHonors Terms & Conditions and found no answers. I hope HHonors will continue to give stay credit for both years for such a trip.

For what its worth, last week I emailed HHonors with the same question and they replied with "it counts as a 2004 stay"

On a similar vein, does anyone know what happens if you check-in on the last day of a bonus point promo? (Not checking out for a day or two.)

Cheers
