Is the "level" of suite that can be obtained with a DSU the same as can be obtained by being a Diamond and simply asking for a suite upgrade?

Technically, though one is confirmed

Okay. I just thought that Diamonds had access to "better" suites. Thanks for confirming that. *Pun*

-1  at least not in my experiences. Always a suite if there available. Sometimes has to be more persistent but always a suite if available at check in.

If there is no cash+points availability when I'm planning on using a dsu, and there is suite availability on paid nights - Is there a way for to book that on a c+p rate?

How about switching a reservation from one hotel to another?

Call the diamond line and ask them to call your u back when there is a cancellation and will be available, otherwise, you are out of luck.

Is the DSU available on a C+P night if it were to be available? I had success in "skipping over" the regular rooms with no availability by applying a DSU to the award from the get-go.

That's my question. How? The reps say it's not possible.
