Here’s Hilton’s coronavirus extension policy:
The member whose status Hilton extended by a year had previously used the one-time extension and only had one two-night stay with the chain in 2019. He, however, is Hilton Grand Vacations owner.
Not sure how Hilton determines whose status they extend and whose not? I would imagine that they try to keep longtime Diamond members vested in.
