Late last year, there was a flurry of status matching offers flying around from different programs.  After the Starwood Marriott merger was announced (latest update on the deal), Hyatt made a play for disaffected SPG loyals by offering a status match.  At first, they were pretty much giving Hyatt Diamond to pretty much everyone.  I missed out on that deal, but when Hilton offered status matches to Diamond, I was successful!

How my Hilton Diamond status is working out

We’ve had 2 stays at Hiltons since I got my Diamond status, and they’ve both been spectacular.  On our round the world trip, we stayed at the Conrad Singapore and the Hilton Doubletree Johor Bahru (Malaysia)

As Diamond members, we were upgraded to great rooms on top floors, and most importantly, that came with Executive Club lounge access, with breakfast, “afternoon tea” and :”evening cocktail” – code for lunch and dinner if we wanted it.

How to match to Hilton Diamond through 2018

A few weeks ago, Hilton was offering status matches again, this time through March 2018. That offer went away relatively quickly, but according to Milenerd, it’s now back.  To match to Hilton Diamond, head to


Take the 10 seconds to fill out the form and that’s it!

You do need to get a screenshot of your proof of status as well sa at least one stay within the past 12 months.  I am not sure whether an award stay would count or not – my guess is that it might depend on how it shows up on your screenshot – I certainly think it might.

Can you “re-match”?

It’s not clear if you already have Diamond whether this status match will work. A few weeks ago, I requested a match (even though I am already Diamond), and after a few weeks through Twitter, Hilton did confirm that my status was now extended through March 2018.  So while there is language in the terms and conditions that these status matches are “once” per offer, it’s not clear if this is a “different” status match or not.  My opinion on these types of things is it’s better to just give it a try – what’s the worst thing that can happen?

What statuses will they match to?

Hilton Gold is available with a variety of credit cards.  So while having Hilton Gold is useful, getting a status match to it is not particularly useful – really only Diamond would be useful.  There are reports that IHG Platinum (also available with the IHG credit card) will match to Hilton Diamond, and that is what I used to submit

Give it a try if you want to try your hand at Hilton Diamond!
