they wonít take more than 50 arrivals for motzie shabbos as people check out late for shabbos and they need to turn the rooms. Until they have reached that threshold ( like dates much further out) they accept one night reservations, points and cash, after they reach that threshold they donít allow any one to arrive on the Saturday

Is there a way to find out if that is the reason that thereís no availability? I used a free night for Friday and looking to use another one for Motzei shabbos

you can also call in house reservations and just ask them.

Ask them for what exactly? Awaed availability?

When staying for just Friday night do they let you check out on motsei Shabbos? Does it cost more? Or you have to book two night?

If you book with two different honor rewards programs, the first two nights are silver level and the last two night are gold level, will you get free breakfast for the first two nights?

I don't think they are obligated to give you for those first two nights but I bet if you emailed ahead and had them link the two reservations, they might let you.

Any way to switch it with the first two nights booked from gold and then the last two from silver?   Because then if you linked the reservations and they just saw gold at check-in, you have a really great likelihood of them just adding the breakfast to the whole (linked) reservation for 4 nights.

Seems like there are no Thursdays available for 95K points. I tried many weeks and found that all days besides Thurs are 95K points but if you add a Thursday to the reservation, it will go up for all.

Anyone else see this?

What's the email for the hotel if I want to request something before I arrive?
