Best Western Status Match

Deal Link:
So status matching is new to me, and I noticed that in the case of Best Western, there is no particular rigor to their process... I am Bonvoy Gold and they gave me Diamond status at BW just by completing the linked form. No proof was requested... I assume if you said you were Platinum Elite that would be good enough for BW...

Not a hot deal at all.

I have the highest BW status. Benefits are insignificant.

And I have stayed at 3 BW hotels.

just got matched to diamond (Marriott gold).
they did ask me how many nights at marriott in the last 12 months but didnt ask for any proof.
i dont expect much for BW status, but i guess it is better than nothing.

I find it depends heavily on the hotel. Some Best Westerns are better about things like room upgrades than others.

YMMV a lot / most of the Best Westerns throughout the States (and Canada?) only have one tier of bedroom. Only difference is whether it's a double, king, or accesssible room. It's not about whether they upgrade you or not, it's just that - there's nothing to upgrade to you.

I matched mine a few years ago, and was maintained at Diamond for 3-4 years even though I had 0 nights stay. Finally got downgraded to Platinum or Gold just these few months.

Like other said, the benefits are next to nil.

I status matched from Wyndham Diamond to BW Diamond earlier this year and they didn't ask any questions or require any screen shots.

As the others said, benefits are virtually non existent though,
But at what cost

If you have lifetime (Platinum) Marriott status will they match the lifetime status as well?
