מי כעמך ישראל.

It's amazing to me how the kallah who gave this wedding away was able to take part and truly be happy in the other kallah's simcha.

Is the standby upgrade feature new? I see you can request an upgrade on standby for half the cost and they count award/cert bookings at the base room rate, so I can request an upgrade from a Superior room booked with a cert, to the David Tower suite for just $395 when it would be $1386 to book outright.

It's always been a feature on the hilton website but they don't always offer it after each booking.  Sometimes they are great deals and sometimes not at all.  They are space available but $395 is a great price for that upgrade and you can have the receipt and hold them to that offer, when you arrive.

Does last minute award space open, or once it's close and already booked, I shouldn't hope?

It does.

A week or 2, or a day or 2? I have a cert expiring 9/24, and want to use it 9/22 or 23. How far can I play chicken?

is there any way to sign up for alerts on certain dates without having to manually check for it?

I had experience checking 2nd day shavous which award space kept failing to open up, then at 12  am I refreshed the page and there was availability that opened. It would seem that there are no updates in real time. If the hotel decides to release  award availability , it becomes available the next day?
