I have searched the HH terms and cannot find how many Base points are needed to move from Blue to Silver.

I have just completed a 5 night stay at Conrad Treasury BNE at a cost of $3187 and am in the Base points + Base points D/Dip option.

This is my first stay with HH this year so am starting from a Zero balance.

I have another suite booked at the same hotel for Oct for 8 nights which l hope will get me well into gold. (Approx spend $4000.)

I also have a 6 night stay in Syd ( have not decided on hotel yet) and a 4 night stay in Melb ( have not decided on hotel) both in Nov. Both of these would be suites of some sort.

Would this get me to Diamond (approx)

Thanks.

Only the base points count for status, so if a stay had a rate of USD80 (ex Tax) and you spend another USD20 then you can earn 1000 base points and 500 bonus, bot only the 1000 count toward status.

You cannot get silver on base points, it's 4 stays or 10 nights.

Gold is 16 stays, 36 nights or 60,000 Base points earned during any calendar year.

http://hhonors1.hilton.com/en_US/hh/about/gold.do

Diamond is 28 stays, 60 nights or 100,000 Base points earned during any calendar year.

Depending upon exchange rates employed and GST* is not subtracted, your just completed stay could earn ~26,000 base points and your upcoming stay may earn 32,000; that's 58,000.

If you can somehow book another AUD250-300 to your room during your upcoming, you may qualify for Gold.

Sometime GST for the room rate is removed before calculating points.
