After their first Succos season, they blocked out award nights for all of Succos.
This past sukkos was also blocked?

defintly a upgrade but not a suite. You would have to work very hard to get a suite. The upgrades are very nice. Enjoy your stay.

How hard?

Of course, they can probably get all the rooms sold for full price...

Very hard.

We didn't get a 1brm but we did get a Jr. suite with a pull out couch and I just asked nicely in my reservation note.  It may have helped that we are Diamond and booked two rooms and it adjoined with our other King room.

Yep, we booked 2 rooms for our family.  Got a Jr. Suite and regular room.  Both were entered by one door with and adjoining foyer and then separate keyed doors to each room but we kept them open to make like a big 2brm apt. And we could still hear the kids.

Doesn't that defeat the purpose of being on vacation? :)

Not when you've got a toddler who still wakes up at night.  We could close the door when we wanted and it was WAY better than having any kids in our room! 😋

So interesting, I wonder why since they even still have standard rooms for all of Pesach.
