Trying to decide if it's worth it to put $40k on my Hilton Surpass to get diamond status.
What would diamond members enjoy at WA J'lem over gold members?

That's not an excuse for sloppy diamond svce.
You could have no status at any hotel and be treated well if you know the right guys.

Ment that the more u stay the better the service/ upgrade for they feel you are a good investment to keep happy. Especially with the plaza and citadel right near there.
Diamonds will always get a decent upgrade as will gold and they cracked down on giving anything higher then grand deluxe rooms even for diamonds.

They told me the highest complimentary upgrade for diamonds would be the deluxe king

Yup. And the hotel is not busy at all, as far as I can tell
