I don't think a trip in the US counts as exotic, but congrats :)

I never even knew that you could hold a hotel award night.

Not sure if there is a legitimate hold, but using points and then cancelling it can be a hold.

Waldorf J'lem 7/3-7/5 on signup nights
Sheraton Tel Aviv 7/5 - 7/7 on points (12k per night)

Thanks Dan!  This whole trip will be paid for on miles and hotel points thanks to you ... if only you could make meals free, too ...

Won't come up as a separate "restaurant" charge?  I've already maxed out points on mine but I'll sign my wife up for one ... thanks!

Just booked 5 nights at the Conrad Maldives. Though i booked 5 nights, i may have to switch that as my current flights only give me 4 nights. Hopefully something will open up and i can make it for 5.
