If you see something that is 50% off but don't need it, walk away and save yourself 100%

I have an upcoming stay at the WAJ, booked through a combination of different ways - some (3rd party) hilton certs, hilton points and chase points, with three different confirmation numbers.  Does it make sense to reach out in advance to combine them into one or is it too much of a hassle (and I should just deal with it upon arrival)?

If you're reluctant to call the property directly, maybe try Hilton reservations. I just used 3 certs from 3 accounts (spanning 2 different last names) and the phone rep has no issue booking for me. She also notated that the 3 reservations were for 1 continuous stay.

I just stayed with that kind of booking. I am a Diamond and when it cam to the chase nights that I booked (it is called Expedia by Waldorf) they wanted me to change rooms. I convinced them not to change. It was a little tough.

Chase works through Expedia which makes it a 3rd party booking.
3rd party bookings don't get benefits like status , or get points. So maybe that's why wanted you to change rooms bc u lost your status for those nights. Or they needed the rooms.

Best bet is when u get to hotel tell them right away u have  what's called back to back reservations

Iíve done back-to-back reservations without changing rooms but I do ask for (and have gotten every time) the two drink certificates for each stay. Youíll most likely have to ask but you should be able to get six drink certificates from these bookings. Hope you have a blast and enjoy (six) LíChaims!  ;D
