American Express is expanding its rewards program for Platinum card members. Now, all consumer, corporate and OPEN Platinum cards will come with a Hilton HHonors Gold Status benefit, giving cardholders access to a larger selection of royalties and hotel options.

The new offer is only available for American Express Platinum Cards in the United States at this time, but it will be launched in other countries in the coming months.

“The Platinum Card can help make travel more enjoyable at every step of the journey, and this latest agreement with Hilton Worldwide gives card members a more convenient and valuable stay while on the road,” said Lisa Durocher, senior vice president for Charge and Benefits at American Express.

Cardholders can use their new rewards at over 4,440 Hilton Worldwide properties. Benefits include free standard Internet access through direct booking, digital check-in services, late-checkout available on request, fifth night free for standard rooms when you stay five nights or more, complimentary bottled water, and 25% bonus points for every Hilton HHonors rewards point earned. The digital check-in services allow guests to customize their room reservations conveniently online.

Upgraded and preferred rooms are available at the following locations: Hilton Hotels & Resorts, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Curio–A Collection by Hilton, and DoubleTree by Hilton.
