Marriott Taste of Platinum or Gold Offer
Getting elite status with Marriott has never been an easy task. So it’s kind of surprising to see a simple and straight forward status match offer from them. Even though it’s a short period trial until you stay for a certain number of nights.
How to get a status match with Marriott?
First, find out your eligibility. Whether you get matched to Gold or to Platinum depends on your current elite status level with other chains. You need to have also completed at least 1 stay with the other chain in the last 12 months.

Once you have applied, you will receive a confirmation mail. It should take around 10 days for you to get the status match confirmation, if you are approved.

Once you have been upgraded for 90 days, you need to fulfil certain stay criteria to extend your status till Feb 2022.
