If it's official there's no need for "anonymity"...

Is there a reason why I see exactly 0 standard award rooms through July? Last year I booked in June for June a week ahead of time with no issues...
Also very frustrating the rep on the phone tells me he had one shabbos (shiva asar betamuz) so I checked with my wife and by then he said it was taken.
What are the chances of something opening up?

I'm seeing
July 8 77k
July 11-13 77k a night
July 14-19 77k also can book 5 nights for 308k (61.6 a night)
July 22-27 available for 69k a night and get one night free bc it's 5 day booking. So only 276k for that week. 55200 a night
 All rooms are superior accessible need to unlock it on menu so when searching for rooms it'll show up.
I just booked 5 days Aug 2-7  today on superior and that was last one .
As for rooms opening
 usually people cancel 2 days before as that's when have to cancel or that day things open if people get upgraded off the basic room whenever they do the rooms

Spoke to some people At hotel today and it Seems to be same french guy buying it  guess he got some money or investors .
 Now seems to be official but guess we'll see how official it is this time.
Was also told they have renewed their contract with Hilton for another 15 years ,  not sure if that's new 15 or added to what was left seems to be added on but can't confirm
Kashrus will remain the same
Still no word on a pool though

Aug/03 was available? I've been looking at that date for the last couple of weeks, oh well I guess I missed it.
