The American Express Platinum card Hilton benefit offers Hilton Honors Gold status to cardholders who enroll in the Hilton Honors rewards program. The benefit provides its members with an 80% bonus on points earned during each stay, a free 5th night when booking a stay of 5+ nights,free bottled water, and daily food and beverage credit (U.S. hotels only) or continental breakfast.
Cardholders are also eligible for late checkouts and complimentary room upgrades, when available. Without the benefit, a cardholder would have to book 40 nights at any of Hilton’s 18 hotel brands to qualify for Gold elite status.
How to get American Express Platinum card Hilton benefits
To get the American Express Platinum card Hilton benefits, activate Hilton Honors Gold elite status by logging in to your Platinum account from the Amex benefits page and clicking the “Enroll Now” button. Once you’re enrolled, you’re immediately eligible for Gold status. But keep in mind that to receive the benefits, you must book your stay directly with a Hilton hotel property. Bookings through a third-party website such as Amex Travel do not earn Hilton points or Gold elite status perks. In case you already have Gold status, you can maintain it without meeting any stay requirements for the duration of your American Express Platinum card membership, or Amex notifies you that the benefit is terminated.
It's also worth noting that in addition to the Hilton Honors Gold status, the American Express Platinum card also offers up to $200 hotel credit on prepaid Fine Hotels and Resorts or The Hotel Collection bookings with American Express travel. These include Hilton properties so you can get up to $200 back in statement credits when making eligible bookings with your American Express Platinum card.
