List of Requirements for Attaining Hotel Elite Status (updated May 22, 2015)

Hotel elite statuses can be very valuable to some people. There are essentially 3 different ways to achieve hotel elite status, through nights, points or stays.

  • A night is self-explanatory, you need to remain at the hotel overnight for it to count as a night.
  • A stay is basically a reservation. So regardless of the number of consecutive nights you remain at hotel, within the same reservation, it will still only count as one stay.
  • Otherwise, the hotel may require you to earn a minimum of qualified points to achieve elite status.

Below is a list of the qualification requirements of some of the major hotel chains.
