You have nothing to lose but a few minutes. You'd probably get BW Diamond like I did.
BW property quality varies a lot. Having no status at a nice place can be a lot better than having high status at a bad one. My room is a little more out of the way and therefore quieter, so maybe that's a sort of upgrade, but apart from that status only means snacks and more points. Here, everyone gets breakfast and gym/pool access, regardless of status.
So know the details of the properties you're considering and don't expect status to mean much.
Hyatt does frequent status matches but I don't know what's going on there right now.
