Gold Passport Elite Levels


This basic level is for those who are members of Gold Passport, but have not qualified for either Platinum or Diamond.

At some hotels, especially larger hotels, there are separate hotel floors or rooms for Gold Passport" members. These usually are similar to ordinary rooms in size and furnishing, but are often higher up in the building (or closer to hotel amenities) than the ordinary rooms for those guests who are not members of Gold Passport.

Also, some hotels have a separate check-in/lobby area for any Gold Passport member, even for one at the Gold level. Most hotels do not have this, but some do, especially outside North America.
