Waldorf  haven't heard any recent dp of people having issues.
If cash stay then Hilton themselves allow it though the hotel.doesnt have to honor benefits given bc of status or award points for the stay

How can they run into an issue? A second person on a reservation is allowed to check in without the AH

Back in September I booked rooms for Sukkos using points with a 48 Hr. Cancellation Policy,
Today I received the following email

Quote
Greetings from the Waldorf Astoria Jerusalem.

You have booked during Sukkot the following reservation:
xxxxxx

Please note the cancellation policy during Sukkot is 60 days prior to arrival, within the 60 days we will not refund 2 nights points/certificate reservation.

Kindly re-confirm your stay.
Otherwise the room will be automatically released.

Could they change the terms of the cancellation policy now after we agreed on the Terms of 48 hrs. when booking?

Got the same. Doubt they can actually do that, contact Hilton if you want. I'm probably cancelling either way.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
