Back in November, Hyatt started things out by offering their top-tier Diamond status to just about everyone under the sun.  They soon toned things down and offered only Platinum status to most members (I didn’t get Diamond), but then Hilton started offering a Hilton Diamond status match

(SEE ALSO: How to status match at each hotel chain)

Though there are reasons you might not want to take advantage of a status match if you don’t need it, I ended up applying for a Hilton Diamond status match, and I was approved



It’s now pretty simple to try for a Hilton Diamond status match

Hilton has opened up a status match on a special website they have.  You simply fill out a short form and reports are that they will let you know within hours


Reports are that they are matching top tier status to Diamond and everything else to Gold (which is IMO the best mid-tier hotel status out there).

The status is good through March 31, 2017, but you have to complete the form by January 11th (Monday!)

Hilton Diamond benefits

You don’t get “confirmed” suite upgrades as a Hilton Diamond (like you do as a Hyatt Diamond), but the benefits of Hilton Diamond status are still pretty good.  Above and beyond the Hilton Gold benefits, you get Executive Club benefits, even if you aren’t upgraded to an Executive Club room.  Plus you’ll still get bonus points on your stay as well as complimentary wi-fi, 5th night free, and a guaranteed room as long as you make your reservation at least 48 hours before your stay.

I haven’t gotten the chance to stay at a Hilton yet since I’ve been upgraded to Hilton Diamond status, but I’m looking forward to it!
