The Hilton Gold fast-track “employee” offers have a colourful history, that have long-operated in something of a shade of grey.
In short, while they are nominally aimed at employees of a certain company, in the past everyone has been able to sign up to them (and, if we’re honest, Hilton did not really appear to care that much). However, more recently, as part of an apparent attempt to protect the “exclusivity” of the Gold (and Diamond) status levels, Hilton have been requiring that you have an email address of the employee in question to benefit: see the Accenture example here.
However, a new fast track option has emerged for employees of LG, which does not require you to have an LG email address and as such is technically “open to all”. While I leave it to you to consider the ethics of this if you’re not an employee, it’s certainly an option.
What’s the Hilton fast track requirement?
After signing up, you need to stay 4 times in 90 days to get Hilton Gold status.
Is Hilton Gold any good?
Yes, it’s fantastic: a huge step up from Silver, and really not that much of a step down from Diamond. You can read our full analysis here.
