The American Express Platinum card hotel status benefit gives cardholders complimentary Gold elite status upgrades with both the Hilton Honors and Marriott Bonvoy loyalty programs.
What you should know about the American Express Platinum card hotel status benefit:
- Hilton Honors Gold and Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite statuses come with an array of perks ranging from bonus points for hotel stays to late checkout, free Wi-Fi access and room upgrades, if available.
- The American Express Platinum card hotel status benefit is available right away, meaning there’s no required minimum number of nights to stay in order to qualify.
- If you already have Gold status for either the Hilton Honors or Marriott Bonvoy programs, you’ll be able to maintain them without meeting their eligibility requirements for the entire duration of your American Express Platinum card membership.
- Users just need to activate the status for each program in order to get the benefit. To activate, log in to your American Express Platinum card online account, navigate to the Amex benefits page and click on the loyalty program. You will then need to enter your account information for the program or create a new loyalty account. Once activated, the Amex Platinum hotel status benefit is ready to use for that program.
Just bear in mind that you have to book your reservation directly with either Hilton or Marriott properties for the benefit to work. Bookings made through third-party travel websites do not qualify.
