Hilton HHonors Status Match Complete
Back on Wednesday I covered Hilton’s announcement of a new status match program for elite members of other programs. The company’s announcement on Flyertalk didn’t give a lot of details, but Hilton eventually confirmed via Twitter that they would be matching some people to their Diamond tier.
In that tweet they only confirmed that Hyatt Diamond members will receive Hilton Diamond, but I suspect top level elites from other programs will as well. While I can’t speak to that yet, I can confirm that my account has indeed been upgraded to HHonors Diamond. For the record I sent over a screenshot from my Hyatt Diamond account.
Here is the email I received:
Dear Mr. Coomer,
Thank you for the reply. I have reviewed the attachment and upgraded
your account to HHonors Diamond tier. You will be Diamond through March
31, 2017. Please let us know if we can assist with anything else.
I also received a separate email regarding my new Diamond status. It shows my status expiration date of March 31, 2017. My account also reflects the Diamond status when I am logged in.
If you are a current Hyatt Diamond member, no matter if you earned your status the hard way or if you were recently matched, then you should have no issue getting matched to Hilton HHonors Diamond. In my case it took a few days and I expect they are probably backed up due to the holiday. If you sent in your information on Wednesday, then I would look for your upgrade to come through soon!
While I have not been staying at Hilton properties nearly as often as I used to, this match has me motivated to target some properties for an upcoming trip to Spain since I have found their hotels and service in Europe to be very good. Even though HHonors Diamond is not the best top tier status, it is still decent and I’m happy to have it.
