  1. I have Hilton Honors Gold and called twice about status matching to Carlson Gold with no luck, even after faxing screenshots and paperwork. They left me at Silver Elite. Oh well…

  2. I am HHonors Gold and only was matched to Silver. They didn’t recognize Accor Platinum for a match.

  3. Do I need to book the max 2 rooms at the same time ? If not, would I earn 2*2.000 = 4.000 online booking goldpoints when I book them on different days for the same date ? I am planning to stay at the Radisson Blu Cesme Resort & Spa in Turkey. Just 40 Euro per night breakfast included.

  4. @Murat – Good question about online booking bonus for two rooms, same date different reservations and I do not know the answer.

    Seems to me that booking two rooms at different times would earn two online booking bonuses.

    Any readers have experience with booking two rooms and online booking bonus?

  5. I am Priority Club platinum and HHonors Gold, but Club Carlson on matched me to silver. Oh, well, can’t complain since I am getting something for free.
