Hilton Honors is continuing to offer the ability to get its highest level elite status via their status match program. This means you can easily have Hilton Diamond status. All you have to do is register for the status match and complete the required number of stays.
Here is how it works….. If you have top tier elite status with any other major hotel loyalty program, such as Marriott, IHG, Hyatt, etc. Hilton will match that status for 90 days and give you the chance to extend it for a year if you stay for 10-18 nights (10 nights for Gold and 18 for Diamond).
To put this in perspective, without the status match Gold requires 40 nights and Diamond status requires 60 nights.
The process is easy. Go to the Hilton status match page, and fill out the form. Then update proof of your status with another program (typically a screenshot will be enough) and proof that you have stayed there in the last 12 months. They will then verify the details and match your status, typically within 5 business days.
