And, please don't take this the wrong way, but I don't think the (non existent) DDF hoards are making their decision based on your say so.
Of you heard the things I've heard about this hotel you wouldn't be so confident. Just go ahead and book.

Well, I'm waiting to book till you do, so if they write reports I'll accept that.
And, please don't take this the wrong way, but I don't think the (non existent) DDF hoards are making their decision based on your say so. The Marriott Newport Beach you have  power, WA  kind of has its own name recognition.
Looking forward!

It's totally not about me...it's the place...totally insane but most importantly it's about the Rolls Royce!!

+1 if any of you have been thinking of going there and are sitting on HHonors points, book it now and for a reservation as close in as possible, it's that great and I just don't see how this kind of service and these kind of perks can last when the blogosphere gets a hold of this place. 


Oh, you can post. It's not likely the Mongol hoard is attacking by Friday. ::)

Ok fine... LOL... now you outed me and I don't have any excuses!  I'll try to write it up this week.  I can't remember if I told you guys but Dr. Sandwhich is a a killer restaurant with tons of salads to choose from to go along with your basar al ha esh (real Israeli style) and within the 3 mile radius.  Yeah it's weird to pull up in the Rolls but that's half the fun!  :P

I don't see any award availability for the Villas for the whole 2018 calendar. Is this par for the course for Marriott?

Meaning that there was award availability at some point? I guess I have to keep an eye out for when they open the 2019 calendar...

So maybe the award calendar just doesn't work. I manually checked some dates in the summer and those didn't have availability but I do see now that there is availability close in.

LOL but more likely a glitch. :)

I didnít book there on a cert but it totally should work as long as you have upgraded it to the correct category.  I did call them about booking points because it looks so unclear online and she said that if you pay those points you donít have to pay any additional upgrade fee.
