Breakfast is included for all paid stays, it's only points stays where you need status to get it. Yes, they can add a rollaway.

Not sure it's still like that but it used to be. As to why my guess is bc u r not paying for anything so they want to make money some how.

it shouldn't take that long to make a pool. If they really wanted one it would have been done by now

Can I complain and receive compensation for the lack of pool/spa if when I booked the nights they advertised it would be open?

Please don't accelerate their departure from Hilton. I'm still hoping to spend shavuos there.

I am not sure if that is the right way to look at it. I earned the points in a legitimate way and spending them in a legitimate way. I booked these nights 6 months ago - well past their promised completion date. Why do I not deserve compensation? This hotel is a ton of points per night and not having any spa, gym or pool is a major negative. But what annoys me more is that after reading through this thread today I see that they have been pushing this date for the last three years. Why should they get away with a blatant lie?

make sure you book ASAP. Last year Shavout was blocked from award bookings
