Any reason I'm not seeing WA J'lem on ultimate rewards site? Trying to book using Chase points.

Hmm...they also have availability on hotels.com that night so they haven't blocked rooms to outside travel agents. Does UR book other Waldorf Astorias? Is this an issue of Hilton having a relationship with Citi and AMEX?  It's the only thing I can think of...

WA Jerusalem rarely appears as on option on UR. It does show up occasionally, but then quickly disappears.

What up with no point availability on Thursdays and Fridays beginning in Jan-May?
