Many years ago Hilton used to offer straight status matches, but have only offered status fast track over the past few years. It has been uncommon for the major programs to offer straight status matches. This Hilton one should be valid until January 11, 2016.
You can access Hilton’s web page for Diamond status here.
Here’s the comment from the reader:
First of all, many thanks for advising the Hilton status match option.
Just to share my first request failed, tried again but not on G-mail e-mail account, but my corporate account e-mail, both with exact same request, and than passed.
Noticed handled by 2 different agents at Hilton hence apparently good to retry.
Seems that Hilton HHonors doesn’t note accounts when the agent has declined the status match.
It doesn’t hurt to email again and another agent may approve it. Based on the emails and comments that readers have sent, some agents seem to be more “relaxed” with matches especially from Le Club AccorHotels and IHG Rewards Club.
On a side note, several readers have commented/emailed that they have matched their Best Western Diamond status to Hilton HHonors Diamond.
