BW will match status with other hotel programs. Marriott Gold has better benefits than SPG Gold so should I use Marriott Gold to match status with BW or it doesn't matter as I'll end up with BW Gold either way? Or maybe BW will be generous and match to Platinum since BW has 5 levels and Marriott and SPG only has 4 levels. I also have Hilton Honors Gold that I could use to match status with BW.

I did a status match last year from Marriott gold and got BW diamond. Marriott (currently) requires more stays for gold than SPG does, so it may bet you a better status match.

This is discussed at length in another thread on this forum:

Elite with Another Hotel Program? We'll Match It!
