Hilton Status Match

I requested a status match from Hilton a couple of weeks ago.  I faxed them my Marriott account statement showing 148 nights at Marriott last year and today I got a response with an "offer" of Gold status for now and if I stay 21 nights in the next 90 days, they would give me Diamond status.

 

Has anyone else had this come up?  I know several insiders mentioned that Hilton does status matching.  If you look at their base requirement for Diamond status:  26 stays or 60 nights, they are "offering" me to stay 1/3 the nights in 1/4 of the time.  Doesnt sound like much of an offer to me.  To those who have done status matching at Hilton, any suggestions?

    Got the same response.  Interestingly, every other major chain except Fairmont, comped me in as a Platinum Equivalent by doing what you did. Some responded immediately but most took a week or so.  In all cases it was a limited time offer, expiring this year during this month unless I would continue to meet the requirements for their top tier level.

    Interesting...

     

    I called Hilton early last year to request a status match.  I just had to fax my previous 3 months of Marriotts' activity and they upgraded me to Diamond status, notifying me within a few days.

     

    I'd try calling again and again until they relent.
