    Best Western fans: heads up, y'all. :)

    As I expected, I was downgraded soft-landed from Diamond to Platinum, on or about Feb 1, due to my not meeting the requirements for retension of Diamond status for stays in the previous year. :eek:

    My Diamond status was due to the Status Match in early 2010. I can tell you that my stays in 2010 and 2011 were awesome as a Diamond member. :cool:

    I've submitted an email to BW with a scan of a 2012 hotel chain status card that would qualify for a status match to BW Diamond.

    Follow my lead, if you're in the same boat. :)

    I made Diamond on a status match and all it got me was a 30 minute wait to check in because there was only one clerk on duty and she took two walk ins first and it took 15 minutes per walk in to check them in.

    I complained about my experience at that facility when I got home and got nothing for my time and I've avoided BW's ever since.
