This was Friday confirmation. As long as you see King Superior room that means you can book it.
So there was superior availability on a Friday? What date?

Glad that I got to see that one! It's fabulous!

Also, is it legit for them to remove superior rooms?

Does the hotel staff see how you paid for the reservation?

I'm wondering if they treat award guests not as well.
