picture of Hilton Honors Diamond and next day I got Choice Platinum. Diamond status can only be earned. Matched my status on Apr 08. Received following email:
"Congratulations! Based on your elite level with Hilton Honors, you have been upgraded to a Choice Privileges® Elite Platinum member; the highest level awarded under our Status Match program. Your new elite status will remain in effect until December 31st of 2019. After this date, you must qualify for elite status each calendar year by staying with Choice Hotels. The more you stay, the higher status you can earn."
