Step 7Wyndham and La Quinta Hotels Status Match

When we originally ran the train that we are about to explain below, we applied, used and started with the American Express Platinum Card, so that is what we are going to use for the purpose of this post. One of the perks of having the American Express Platinum Card is two fold when it comes to hotel tier upgrades. One, you can enroll and automatically get upgraded to Hilton Honors Gold Status and second you can enroll and also get upgraded to Marriott Bonvoy Gold Elite Status.

This match is probably one of the most important matches since this is the match you need to start the journey to get your free 4 night vacation to Atlantis in Nassau Bahamas. Be sure you use this match wisely as you need to complete 14 night stays within 90 days in order to keep this status if you wish to keep it. However, keeping the status is not needed (unless you as an individual need it), we only need this status match to get us to Caesar’s Diamond. So make sure that you status match Wyndham at a specific time in the year (since the match only lasts 90 days) because you need the Caesar’s Diamond Level in order to book your free 4 night vacation to Atlantis.

To match your Hilton Honors Gold (or Diamond) to Wyndham Rewards Diamond, head on over to Wyndham’s Status Match page and fill out the information on their page to receive a match to Wyndham’s Corresponding Diamond Reward Level Status based your Hilton Honors Gold or Diamond.
