The bright side is that they are actually releasing rooms for points, and not considering all the rooms suites as some anticipated.

Reserve a room for a stay prior to 11/30 and then call in to change dates.

Not sure it'll work, but definitely worth a try.

I'm trying to book an award here from 6/1-6/7 for Shavuot. It offers me a King Standard at 66,400 points per night when I search for 2 adults. When I add a child (for my 6 year old daughter), it only offers me a twin deluxe room at approx. 180,000 points per night. We're not the types who stay inside or need a ton of room for sleeping arrangements, so I know the King Standard would work out fine, but I don't want to cause an issue with the booking if I try to add her onto the reservation afterwards. This wasn't an issue at the TA Hilton, and the King standard room there is smaller.

Do you need a regular bed for her or a crib is fine?

Of course as most 6 year olds sleep in a crib.
Personally I would just reserve for 2 adults.

Than what's the problem?
Book for two adults and call the property directly to request a crib.

She's easy, a rollaway, in bed with us, or even a sleeping bag on the floor and some pillows would be fine.

Only problem would be if the hotel had an issue with me booking a room for 2 and showing up with 3. I'm kind of glad you don't think it's a big deal though. I'll let the board know my experience for reference.

Thanks!
