I find they are normally as prompt as SPG on replies....maybe even a little better. Congrats on achieving Plat....good benefits. Check-in upgrades and the Plat breakfast coupons are a bonus and you can get two at check-in if you have a guest (full breakfast coupons have the tip included and most places accept for room service too...saves us a bundle on vacation at $60+ per day at times)

Delta's perks pretty good for elite members. I think they are underrated and not too many people talk about their program probably because they are only available in Canada.

I've discovered quite a few US/European/APAC travellers use Delta and never join Delta Privilege because its a Canada only program.

Ideally a loyalty program partnership sharing agreement of sort's with Fairmont even would be nice. Delta employee's still get staff discounts as Fairmonts due to the Canadian Pacific Hotels linkage from years ago so not entirely impossible if some one at Delta or Fairmont got ambitious and wanted to pull in new customers by honoring status for each program. Easier than building or rebranding non-Canadian hotels.

FYI....you used to be able to p/u a $100 Delta gift card for 12000 Aeroplan miles but sometime last fall Aeroplan bumped it to only bundles of 5 x $100 for 60500 Aeroplan Miles.

Has anyone had any luck getting Delta to status match with other chains? We're Hilton Diamond and mid-tier just about everyone else.... We're going to be spending the next few weeks at a Delta - but we can't hop or do anything to speed up the process because this is the only hotel in this area on the all powerful corporate list. I'm going to give it a try anyway - but just looking for any ideas.

Never heard of a Delta Status match but that being said it never hurts to ask. I'd suggest sending in a photo of your various loyalty program cards when you email a request ( found that sped things up in other programs ) and if they want a stay history that can go after. Good luck and let us know how it went. As an extra thought if they don't match call the hotel and explain 1st time visitor, top tier Hilton , any upgrades/club room please? etc...worked before on paid stays. Long shot .....but if you are staying there for the 20 nights required for Gold anyway the hotel "may" extend in advance Gold benefits during you're stay until you reach the threshold too if you ask.

CPSA Members - New Delta Booking Portal

For any CPSA Members... this is the booking portal link for the new website. Had to email Delta for it as the 2012 link was dead. Rates not so good this year.
