  1. If you haven’t taken action on the Hyatt instant status offer yet, you’re quite a bit behind and you’re definitely not getting Diamond unless you are SPG Platinum

    You MIGHT still be able to get Hyatt Platinum status, which isn’t worth much at all

  2. Hyatt is only matching SPG Platinum, I believe. I’m Hilton Diamond, and the Twitter reply I received offered only Hyatt Platinum, which is not worth much to me.

    The reply said they were only matching SPG elites to Hyatt Diamond.
