I am confused on nights versus stays. The challenge says 12 nights but also says back to back nights are considered one stay. If I stay 12 nights in a row at the same hotel then have I completed the challenge?

A Diamond Challenge, especially during the current challenge makes good sense, if you can do the stays for a reasonable price. Do the 12 nights now, and you'll get 2 free nights at category 1-4 hotels, or 15k in hotel points. Do 15 nights, and you'll get 30k points.

I try to find stays that are $80 or less per night. Add in the 1000 Diamond amenity points, breakfast, and other spiffs, and it adds up.

If you can find a cheap full service property, and do 20 separate stays to max the bonus out, you'd get 20k in Diamond bonuses, plus 50k in points, plus 300-400 points per stay, so say 80k points. If you value points at 1.5 cpp, that'd be worth about $1200. Find a property with $50 a night stays, and you'd basically break even, and have the 8 suite upgrades, diamond status for a year.

But I do think Diamond status is roughly worth at least $1250 (minimum of $250 for the free breakfasts, $750 for confirmed suite upgrades, and $250 for standard room upgrades).
The trump here are DSUs on the P and C, and elite rates.. which the Platinum members are not able to do. Obviously, the stay credit for P and C and DSU reservations is a game changer.

So just confirming for peace of mind before accepting the challenge, this is not a once per lifetime ordeal, correct? This is instead a once per promotion (current promotion between June 1, 2013, and April 30, 2014) challenge, yes?

Correct. How many times Hyatt allows you to conduct a challenge.. YMMV.

I emailed HGP on November 18 with the proof of my Hilton Goldness. Challenge kicked in on November 20, and on November 21 I checked in to the Hyatt Regency Boston (was upgraded to a suite too, without a voucher). On January 15-17 I stayed at Hyatt Park Ararat Moscow (surprisingly cheap) and completed the Diamond Challenge. The points have now posted and my account says Diamond until 28 February 2015. Thank you!

Can you back-date the start of the challenge? I'll have 7 nights at Hyatt's by the end of the week since January 6th and if I'm going to do this challenge it seems silly to let those 7 nights go to waste if I can count them toward the 12 and just need 5 more over the next 60 days

Why not start the challenge NOW before the end of the week?

Further along those lines, can you use your Hyatt diamond status to get elite status on the other hotel chains?

The issue I think we were trying to get at is can we status match with temporary platinum from Hyatt.

I thought about this, but wondered why no one else talks about it. Too good to be true.
