I sent an email to Status_Match@choicehotels.com
. I then Attached my Proof of IHG Rewards Club Status, and membership materials. I got an email back saying my request was being processed within 24 hours, and after 3 days/72 hours, I got my status match approved and I was upgraded.
COPY OF EMAIL MESSAGE TO MYSELF:
