Hilton introduced the rollover night function back in 2018 (read more here), and likely because of the pandemic, many readers have only now woken up and questioned how many nights they should have at the beginning of 2023.

Let’s tackle two questions:
Question re 2023 tracker.
Mine is incorrect.
I needed only 9 nights for 2022 (33 rollover nights from 2021).
In 2022, I had for sure more than 60 nights (unfortunately, didn’t take a screenshot end of 2022).
I think the tracker showed around 110 nights including the double promotions
Have you heard of other Loyalty Lobby readers that have the same issue?
I have contacted Hilton Honors, but no answer so far, only referring to other Hilton support teams.
If the reader had 100 elite qualifying nights (total) in 2022, you first need to deduct the rollover nights from 2021 (33) and then the number of nights required for Diamond status last year (42) to have the total number of nights rolling over to 2023.
110 – 33 – 42 = 35 nights should have rolled over to 2023 (assuming that the reader’s numbers are correct).
I was a bit confused with the rollover calculations for my Hilton status after the rollover total for 2023 posted. I see this issue in quite a bit of forum posts including your own comments, ex Diane K here: https://loyaltylobby.com/2023/01/16/hilton-lifetime-diamond-requirements-progress-in-2023-wheres-the-counter/ who probably have rollover nights included in her 51 night total. I think this could make a good post to clarify for people a bit confused like myself.
I had 126 nights last year and I thought I would already be qualified for diamond this year.
So I emailed Hilton and got the following response
“Please be inform that total 126 nights in 2022 out of which 60 were rolled over it means you complete 66 so 66-42= 24 rolled over”
So rolling over a lot of nights is essentially pointless if you plan to stay a lot the following year as well
I think the rule is a bit strange, ex if I stay 120 nights 2022 and qualify for diamond as well as rolling over 60 nights qualifying me for 2023. In that scenario staying 60 nights in 2023 is essentially pointless for qualification purposes since 2024 will have 0 rollover nights?
Anyway think a post about this rule could and the calculation could be beneficial for a lot of your readers.
Rollover nights help members whose yearly Hilton nights considerably fluctuate. But unfortunately, they won’t help those who qualify for Honors Diamond yearly.
The maximum number of nights that can roll over from 2022 to 2023 is capped at 60, the number required to qualify for Diamond status. You could have achieved this by having 102 qualifying nights in 2022 because the Diamond status needed that number of nights last year.
If you are unsure of the number of nights consumed in 2022, you need to look at your consumed stays and consider that the nights counted twice at the end of 2022.
You deduct 42 from the total number of nights and remember that a maximum of 60 can roll over.
Here’s my example from November:
- Won’t count towards Milestone Rewards
- Won’t count towards Gold & Diamond status gifting
My Account Status:
You need to forget the number of nights shown at the top (166), and unless you want to do a simple subtraction, there is no need to look at the rollover nights number either.
The most valuable counter is the Milestone Bonus. You can use it to count how many nights will roll over to the following year.
The Diamond requirement this year is 42 nights. 106 nights – 42 nights = 64 nights, but the maximum that can roll over is capped at 60.

It would help if Hilton had a calculator on its website that would show the number of potential rollover nights to the following year because it seems this question won’t go away.
If you qualify for Diamond status yearly, the rollover nights have no meaning to you. But they may help someone with a highly variably stay pattern qualify for two years at once.
