Five years ago, I joined Choice Privileges, received a member number but never stayed. Yesterday, I emailed this info.:
"Simply email Status_Match@choicehotels.com
Choice Privileges Member Number :
Proof of Elite status in another hotel program:
Screenshot or copy of your other program's loyalty card (with expiration date)"
Within 4 hours of sending the email, I received the Choice Privileges reply:
Congratulations! Based on your elite level with Hilton Honors, you have been upgraded to a Choice Privileges® Elite Platinum member; the highest level awarded under our Status Match program. Your new elite status will remain in effect until December 31st of 2021. After this date, you must qualify for elite status each calendar year by staying with Choice Hotels
