Staying at the GH, so no real need for the room.
I am curious.
Why did you choose the GH over the Cove?
I am still deciding between the two.

Hotel is not available on points for the 2 nights that I want, but if I extend my stay for 5 nights then there is availability.
Marriot told me over the phone that if I need to cut my stay short I should just tell the hotel while I am there. They will then reissue the certificate for the time that I actually spent at the hotel.
Has anyone ever done this?
I do not want to be out an extra 120k points!

I Can't figure out whats going on.

Some dates in December and January 2020 have a 30 day cancellation.
Some have 7 days, and some can't be canceled without penalty a day after booking.
I booked 01/04/2020 for 5 nights and have till 7 days prior to cancel.
When I tried booking a second room for the same dates the cancellation policy is a year in advance!

Has the SRBH changed their cancelation policy?
Looking to book for January 2020 and getting the following.

About this reservation:
You may cancel your reservation for no charge until February 14, 2019. Please note that we will assess a fee if you must cancel after this deadline. If you have made a prepayment, we will retain all or part of your prepayment. If not, we will charge your credit card. This fee equals your room charge plus tax for all the nights of your reservation.

The Ritz in Bal Harbor says you can cancel for no penalty until a week before....

Just saying, I saved up points to use at WAJ but it didn't work out . Used them at the WABH.... Amazing!

I am going this week. Looking forward!

can this be applied to an existing award stay?

Chase Ritz $150 statement credit, no spend. AF due in Feb.


A few times I've see availability in their "accessible rooms" but I think you have to click that you are willing to take one of those rooms in order to see them.  I only realized this when I was seeing a room online but not in the app (I guess because of the way I had put my settings for the website).  Anyway, worth a try!

Thanks Denverite!
There is availability for 3 out of the 5 nights that I need in an accessible room.
The 2 nights with no award availability, are in the middle of the stay  :-\

I see no availability , was only searching for October and November.

I booked for the beginning of February.
