Anyone know whether BW matches Caesars? Does anyone else match Caesars Diamond?

Thumbs up

Take a pic and send it to BW! It is a simple process.

Back in 2016 I was an Accor Hotels elite member, but their program rollover dates conflicted with my usual traveling patterns, and so I could never take advantage of my status.

Sent it off to BW, and got a pretty high status. I have reduced traveling since, but BW has always given me a soft landing, and even an easy status challenge which I am able to meet.

Recently got Diamond Select status, aside from the 50% bonus points I don't see the real benefit of this highest status compared to lower statuses...

at the time of checkin last week, there was me as diamond select member and another guest, platinum, we got the same welcome gift and the same room upgrade

if there is no difference between us, i don't see the point of having so many status levels

Is there any reason to time when you request a match with Best Western? For example will requesting a status match in early 2021 result in a longer status match validity - ie. January 31, 2023?

The current status match page language is "Enjoy your Status Match upgrade at any Best Western branded hotel worldwide until January 31, 2022, without meeting tier upgrade requirements."

They are mainly about points and free nights, and less about status and loyalty treatment. The sweet spot is Gold, which is more than enough if you just want upgrades and stay a handful of times per year. Many BWs still don't really have premium rooms, where even a non-member is going to feel exactly the same as a Diamond Select.

I can see the status match being useful if planning for an imminent stay at a swanky BW Royale & Suites, while also looking forward to more BW stays.... But Beyond a few nights I don't think you would feel a difference between Gold and Diamond Select.
