Status match request site: https://hiltonhhonors.hiltonapps.com/

Note new terms as of March 2017 (or a Little earlier - changed validity to 2019):
For the next 90 days, get a taste of the elite life with Hilton HHonors.
We'll match your elite status with any other loyalty program.

You'll also have the opportunity to extend your status match through March 31, 2019, when you stay with us over the next 90 days. If you're matched to Gold status, you'll just need to complete 4 stays. If you're matched to Diamond, you'll need 8 stays.

My upgrade rate this year (and in reality it went downhill around the middle of 2015) has plummeted, at hotels when I have traditionally scored upgrades, such as T4 Heathrow, CDG, LAX etc. With this madness, I'm going to switch to Marriott (already Gold) and should easily get Platinum. All my colleagues swear that compared to Hilton, the Marriott program is miles ahead. We'll see. This craziness has to stop.


If you want to significantly increase your upgrades tip the hotel employee and get their email. I get upgrades weeks before I arrive

$50 here and there goes a long way

The whole point of being loyal to a chain is that an elite should get the same great treatment even if they go to a different hotel every week and never return.

I did this. I was told status would show up with IHG in 6-8 weeks but it took exactly 7 days from the day I was approved for the card. Waiting on word from HHonors now.

I submitted my Hyatt Diamond info with a request for status match on Aprll 5 and am still waiting for a response. I emailed and the response I received is that they are inundated and I should receive the status match soon.

So I status matched from Gold to Diamond using my SPG Plat status last year....

Then I found out that new status matches are good until 2018!! So I called Hilton Honors and asked about the validity of my match. Apparently, my Diamond status is good until March 2018 too!!

So if you got a status match a couple months back like myself, give Hilton a call to find out if they have extended your Diamond status

Apparently you no longer need to sustain your stays/nights anymore, all you have to do is to submit a match or call for an extension with another hotel elite membership.
General speaking it is a win win strategy for all, someone earns the crowd, the others earn the cash
Way to go Hilton.

Still waiting on April 7, with same reply. Weird that ours our held up due to being inundated, but others who submitted after got in 72 hours.

Actually, it should. On my recent stay as a Diamond I didn't get any at all. In fact, each of the last four stays has declined in treatment. And on the last one my high floor preference wasn't honored at all: we ended up with 2nd floor, parking lot view. True, the breakfast was fine. But maybe the Hilton marketers are now overextending themselves.

When you submitted the status match did you receive an email confirmation? I submitted the request online over the weekend but never got any sort of acknowledgement email.

No such luck like some others - last time's match remains expiring Mar 2017.

Submitted the match requests today but not hopeful it would extend to Mar 2018.

No. You would just need to wait and wait, as reported in this thread.

I submitted last week just for fun. I don't spend a lot of nights at hotel. Got platinum IHG because of the credit card. I had 2 nights stay so far this year. Showed that too Hilton. To my surprise, I got an email this morning saying I have Diamond status until 2018. Crazy. They do give it out like candy.

They certainly can't make approval much looser than it already is.
