    For the first time since having Hilton Gold Status, I booked multiple rooms on my account. Three rooms at a Doubletree for myself and two colleagues.

    On check in I was surprised that they treated all three rooms as gold status - so we all got an upgrade, complimentary breakfast, gold welcome letter. etc. On check out, they suggested (albeit hesitantly) that I'd receive points on all three rooms - although only one booking is now showing on my account and the points haven't updated.

    Did we just get lucky with the status being applied to all rooms or is this fairly standard?

    It's one of those things where it's far from guaranteed, but pretty much always seems to happen in practice. Getting lounge access on multiple rooms as a Diamond is particularly nice!

    I am really curious how much you needed to spend (approximately) to get this Hilton Gold Status?

    It depends mainly on what country you live in. If you're a UK resident, the cheapest way would be via the Amex platinum (£450 pa). That gives you more than just HH Gold status - have a look on other forums here to see what benefits you get and also get swamped with referral links :)
    You used to be able to get gold via the UK hilton Barclaycard, but that's been stopped for new applicants.

    As above, my Gold status comes from my Amex Platinum - £450/yr (equates to £37.50/month and can be cancelled at any point). When you consider that this status is just one of the benefits, I find for a semi-regular traveller it pays for itself. For example, if you were to fly and/or use a hotel every month, you'd likely earn that back in airport lounge access, upgraded rooms, free breakfast, etc...

    I recently shared an article from my blog which highlighted how much I got in perks on just one trip: https://rewardpoints.home.blog/2018/11/09/travel-hack-honeymoon/

    If you've got elite status with another hotel programme, you could status match across and keep hilton gold after just 40 stays (which should be fairly easy to do for ~£200 depending on where you live): https://insideflyer.co.uk/2018/07/p...-towards-hilton-honors-status-matchchallenge/
