Number of nights with standard room award space from now through EOS: 1

What is the standard room at this property? Even their most basic room I could find (twin deluxe) is considered premium at 200k per night.

I need to stay Sept 12-14, but I started playing with other dates and it seems a clear pattern of not allowing redemptions. I find it hard to believe all standard rooms are sold out a year out.

Rooms open up but must be quick (like passport appointments) plenty of people book (including agents )and a day or 2 before they open up as people cancel or sometimes day of if the room gets upgraded .
I found 2 weeks ago the whole first of week of August opened up Thurs before. Even found a shabbos open up 2 weeks ago on a wed ,  3 rooms available and within an hour were all gone.
Now I Needed a connecting family room in2 weeks was tracking it for month few times a day and yesterday randomly opened up and I grabbed it.

Looks like they lowered the price for Friday night dinner. They quoted me $144. Which is still more than Inbal or plaza and less desirable since itís plated and not buffet

I was able to piece together four consecutive nights in July by picking off one night at a time over a couple of months, checking multiple times a day. It only takes a few seconds.

Maybe forex difference as USD strengthened against NIS and prices are in NIS.

That's what I initially thought but a few months ago they were charging 590 nis so I think they did lower it.
