Can they also see you previous travels?
As in if you've ever been to the hotel before?

Of course.  They'll likely welcome you "back".

Walking thru the old city right before the stairs down to the wall,  theres a street on the left that leads to a mikvah .

The Supervisor here indeed confirmed for me that they blocked superior rooms because they don't want points bookings.

IIRC you need to pass an Arabs property, and it's outdoors.

Is there any way to book the superior room at all?

They've blocked standard rooms now for next Pesach, which they never did all last year.  I had already booked one room for 10 nights and another for 5 so now I just need one more room for 5 nights if they open it back up.

Do they lose money on point bookings?
Are they allowed to do that?

Wow! Ugh! I had no issue booking a room during this Pesach days before my stay. A real shame.
