Any idea why I see an option of 80000 points per night and when it comes to select a room there's no such option?
I had the same thing last week and was able to book it by phone without any issues

Try adding the option of "Accessible rooms" sometimes this option is hidden unless you check it off and these may be the only rooms at the 80k level available.

Ok that makes sense thought you meant the basic rate was that instead of the standard 80k

Those dates show 80k for me even when looking at the flexible calendar. But at least one night I was planning on staying but hadn't yet booked (Aug 23) had gone up in rate

It actually could be that some nights are selling out of those lowest price rooms since it's not that far away and busy season.

There's a small box next to the quantity of rooms you want.

I've done it on desktop but can't find it on mobile. But this only works when 80k shows as available on the flex calendar

I just realized that the difference is when I search for one night at a time or multiple nights, even using flex dates....

When I searched rooms in Jerusalem for those dates the WA, TA and Eilat Hiltons all showed up and the WA was showing very high points amount, but when I actually clicked on WA to pick my specific room there was a King Superior room for me to choose for the standard rate.

Parents had a great stay at the hotel. They were both really impressed. Already told all their friends that their son booked them at the Waldorf as a present ::).
