Waldorf=Astoria do not offer the same benefits as, say, Conrad, Hilton or DoubleTree. Be sure to have My Way preferences selected; some properties are hardnosed about this issue, and a few will try to imply you have selected other benefits. Edited down to relevant parts,

Code:
Diamond Elite Membership...

Diamond Elite Members will receive the following during stays as a
registered Diamond Elite Member:

A 50% bonus on Base Points earned during the period they are Diamond
Elite Members.

Complimentary In-Room, High-Speed Internet Access during stays at
Waldorf Astoria™ Hotels & Resorts, Conrad® Hotels & Resorts, Hilton
Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree by Hilton™, Embassy Suites Hotels™ and 
Hilton Grand Vacations™.*

Complimentary access during your stay to health club or fitness center
where available and where the health club or fitness center is owned or
operated by the hotel.*

Two complimentary bottles of water per stay at Waldorf Astoria Hotels & 
Resorts, Conrad® Hotels & Resorts, Hilton Hotels & Resorts, DoubleTree by
Hilton™, Embassy Suites, Hilton Garden Inn and Hilton Grand Vacations
properties.*

5th Night Free: For every Standard Room Reward stay of five or more 
nights, one night is free. Members can utilize the 5th Night Free benefit on 
an unlimited number of stays annually. Applies only to five consecutive 
nights within the same Standard Room Reward stay at the same property, 
up to 20 nights, when confirmed at time of booking. No more than four 
free nights will be awarded per stay. If free night is declined, reservation 
is cancelled, or check-out occurs before fifth night, the free night is forfeited and has no cash, point, or Reward value. Point value of the free 
night is based on the average nightly point value during the stay 
calculated by dividing the total point value of all nights by the number 
of nights in the stay. A standard room is defined by each hotel and 
subject to availability at participating hotels within the Hilton HHonors 
portfolio of brands. Applies to Standard Room Reward stays only, not 
to paid stays. Does not apply when stay is booked as part of a Reward 
Stay offer, package, or promotion offered by Hilton or any of its partners, 
or at All-Inclusive properties or Distinctive properties.

Choose a My Way On-Property benefit. (see below, please)

At Waldorf Astoria® Hotels & Resorts, Conrad® Hotels & Resorts, Hilton
 Hotels & Resorts, and DoubleTree by Hilton™ properties, Diamond 
HHonors guests will receive upgrades to preferred rooms, based on 
availability at the time of check-in (excludes Napua Tower at Grand 
Wailea and Imperial Floor at Rome Cavalieri). Upgrades for Diamond 
HHonors guests may include the next-best available room from the 
room type booked. Upgrades may also be rooms with desirable views, 
corner rooms, rooms on high floors, rooms with special amenities, 
rooms on Executive Floors, or suites, as identified by each property. 

Upgrades exclude executive suites, villas and specialty accommodations 
(which may include, but not limited to, "Vista" and "Villa" accommodation 
types), subject to the discretion of the hotel. Group reservations and 
certain rates are not eligible for suite accommodations and may not be 
eligible for complimentary upgrades. All upgrades are granted on a space-
available basis for the entire stay, as determined at the time of check-in. 
Preferred rooms are identified by each individual property and may vary 
within each brand. Upgrades will be given only for one room for the 
member, regardless of additional rooms the member may have purchased 
at or after the time of booking. The following brands do not offer 
complimentary upgrades: Embassy Suites™, Hilton Garden Inn®, 
Hampton Inn & Suites®, Homewood Suites by Hilton®, Home2 Suites 
by Hilton®, and Hilton Grand Vacations®.

*In-Room High-Speed Internet Access, Fitness Center / Health Club Access, In-Room Movie and Bottled Water benefits may not be complimentary at properties with a resort charge.
