Title: spg nights and flights
Post by: yare on May 27, 2010, 05:01:41 PM
instead of 5 consecutive nights, could i do 2 rooms for 2 nights, and then a 3rd night for one room?

Doubt it, unless you book the 5 nights consecutively and subsequently get a hotel manager to let you change to that.

i figured as much.  and thats what the rep at spg claimed as well.  do you know of any deals out there for using points when taking two rooms per night?    at this point it looks like i'll be stuck with hilton and just do two simultaneous axon awards

Some questions for the people:
Do the nights have to be reserved at the same time as the flights? Do the 5 nights have to be in the same place? Once I have the reservation, can I change the hotel stay to any other hotel?
Does anyone know any of this or any other relevant info for utilizing n&f to the fullest?

It must be 5 nights in the same place and reserved at the same time, but I have no idea if you can change hotels later on.

From the SPG website
"If hotel availability allows a date change on the Free Night Award reservation for a Nights & Flights award, the Nights & Flights award dates may be changed."

Summary courtesy of scflier on flyertalk:
With Nights & Flights, you have to book a 5-night hotel stay at a Cat3 or Cat4 property. If you later decide not to use that stay, you can reschedule it (if availability exists and you abide by any change/cancellation deadlines) or you can cancel it altogether. If you cancel the hotel portion, the points for the hotel portion (20K - 30K) of the N&F award are redeposited into your account.

Right, but can you change hotels, not just the dates?

more from scflier:
"My understanding has been that you can even change hotels as long as the new hotel is the same category. If your desired hotel changes category, though, then you can't rebook into new dates at that particular hotel."
