Someone commented on a blog post on View From the Wing that Hyatt told him they would not accept Hilton Gold and that they would only match "top tier."

Take that for what you will but I guess it's a good sign we haven't heard too many other reports of this.

I understand I can't book 2 rooms at the same hotel for 3 nights each and get 6 night credits toward the challenge. But what if I booked three nights at hotel #1 and the same three nights at hotel #2? Would it work then?

As long as the old trial was before the current "trial season" started, i.e. May 2014, you are able to sign up again for this year's trial even if you have tried and failed a previous Diamond Trial.

I just got the Hyatt status match using my Hilton Gold last week. Going to the Vendome next week so I'm hoping they let me use the breakfast benefit for both rooms I booked.

I started my challenge on May 16 and finished 12 eligible nights on July 19. My question is whether Diamond status will be upgraded to Feb 2016? I know this is 60 day challenge. But I received the email confirmation when I enrolled into this challenge which indicates "To maintain your Diamond status through February 2016, simply stay 12 eligible nights by July 31, 2014." I would have done my last 2 nights earlier if my confirmation email had clearly specified within 60 days.

My status has not been updated yet. I have sent an email to Gold Passport Program, but have not got any feedback yet.

If that's what your email says, then I would call them after your nights post to your account.

Unfortunately, unless I'm mistaken, I think you've missed to boat on this one. The eligible period for those 12 stays is 60 days from your start date, but I believe the diamond status is granted to you until the end of the month that those 60 days ends (July).

Thanks. My email says before July 31, 2014. Otherwise, I would have finished within 30 days. My current diamond status shows it will ends on July 31. I sent an email to confirm already. No replies yet. Normally, how soon will the custom service respond?
