Around Thanksgiving, we posted about the opportunity to request status match from Hilton. I submitted my request right away showing both my Hyatt Diamond (earned the hard way) and SPG Platinum status as well as my stay pattern. It took a while (nearly a week) but, Hilton has confirmed me to Hilton Diamond Status!

Bottom Line

I’m pretty happy with my new, easily earned Hilton Diamond Status. I might even look to start staying with them more often. I am especially impressed that the status is good through March, 2017; no complaints here. Have you heard back from Hilton your status match?

If looking for Hilton points, consider the Hilton Honors Card from American Express card.

  1. I made a request over Thanksgiving weekend and was granted Diamond status on the following Wednesday. I am Platinum with both Starwood and Marriott.

  2. Hello from Grenada…Both Wife & I received Hyatt Diamond & Hilton Diamond through these status match offers. We have 9 days @ the Hilton, Aruba over Prez week 2016 where the Hilton Diamond will be of great value.

  3. got shot down with current hyatt platinum, spg gold & hilton gold. waste of time on the back & forth emails!

    anyone got diamond status without existing / current equivalent level?

  4. Wife and I both got matched even though I didn’t even apply… Just sent her match request through my email. Whatever, I’ll take it 🙂

  5. I first was able to talk my way into the Hyatt status match when they were only going to give me platinum. I only had Hilton, SPG and Marriott Gold. I then used my new Hyatt Diamond status to get my Hilton to Diamond. All in all, well worth the two extra messages I sent.
