Hilton will status match with any hotel program

This really sounds too good to be true, but I checked it out. I’m already a Hilton Diamond from a status match last year so I couldn’t check it out myself, but here are the details if you’re interested. It’s a 90 match with the option to extend until 2018 with some stays. Hilton will status match with any hotel program.

The offer:

  • After you’re matched you will get 90 days of status
    • If matched to gold you need 4 stays in that time period to maintain Gold til March 31, 2018
    • If matched to diamond you need 4 stays in that time period to maintain Diamond til March 31, 2018

It’s more like a match and challenge, but seems to be open to everyone
