Here’s how I just applied for a Hilton Status Match. Hurry while it’s live because the last status match to Hyatt Diamond status didn’t last long. Here’s a link to a quick overview of Hilton Diamond status.
Hilton Status Match
Take two simple steps to be on your way to elite benefits with a Hilton Status Match.
- Take a screen shot of your other hotel status (SPG or Hyatt should work) or take a picture of your hotel status card
- Send an email to xx with your request
- Be sure to include your Hilton Account information so they can match your other hotel status
Hilton Status Levels
Hilton has 4 levels of status. The top tier status is Diamond which has the best benefits. Although, Gold status is fairly good and I used it to get some great benefits at hotels like the Hilton Moorea.

Hilton announced the status match offer on Flyertalk. See below for the full message.
We’re winding down for the Thanksgiving holiday and, as a heads up, I will be out of the office until Monday, but I wanted to let you know about our status match program…
We’ve been receiving a number of requests and yes, we do match status from other programs and we’d love to be your travel home.
- We are matching status for 2016. To make sure you’re all set for the year, please submit your request by January 11, 2016. You’ll enjoy that status through March 2017.
- All you need is something that shows your elite tier in another program and an HHonors number.
- Email us at HHonorMyStatus@hilton.com and we’ll help get you started.
Please note it may take a couple of days to process given the Thanksgiving holiday. We promise to process requests as quickly as possible and any request submitted prior to January 11, 2016, will be processed in time to enjoy your new status for the entire year.
Hilton status match is now live. I would treat it as a first come first serve limited time offer because we don’t know how many status match offers they’ll award. As we saw with Hyatt, this could go fast.
