I am a Gold member. Can my status drop because I use my accumulated points to stay in a hotel

    You will not lower your elite status but staying for a night with accumulated points will not add to your total yearly nights needed for elite status. You are "credited" for a night when you actually pay for that stay. Using points merely reduces your total accumulated points.

      Right on alanrubins!!!!! Status does not change as a result of using one's points. Status is based on number of paid stays as well as any bonus nights given through credit card spending, birthday gift, etc...

      You are correct.

    I had this discussion with other frequent travelers in my office and your status is according to your stays you have earned.  You have to maintain  a certain level to stay Silver, Gold or Platinum but if you use points for a stay - it does not lower your level of membership.   Someone correct me if I did not get this right.   Cheers,    kw
