    I am HHonors Gold (soon to be gone) and Club Carlson Silver (soon to be gone). I Have a few stays coming up, that are scheduled into Crowne Plaza's at (JAX & ORD). I have no status with IHG, but think I'd like to have that when staying at those hotels this year.
    My question is, can I, and if so, how, can I get a status match with IHG with one of the hotel chains, that I have status with?
    Thanks for any help/suggestions.

    I was able to status match my HHonors Gold for IHG Plat.

    It appears that breakfast isn't included for plats. And it looks like there isn't a complimentary shuttle from and back to the airport at JAX. I haven't looked at ORD yet.

    PC Plat is not worth a whole lot. No breakfast benefit. But it's also pretty much free for US folks who can get the PC Visa.

    As HaveMilesWillTravel said, PC Plat is worthless.

    Agreed. You get a 50% point bonus and at some properties you can get a decent upgrade, however that is not the norm.

    I respectfully disagree Jimmy.

    I was able to parlay my PC Plat into Kimpton Inner Circle status.

    Additionally, having PC Platinum provides me a connection to GoodBoy who can write for hours about the "greatness" of IHG and becoming an Ambassador.
