On a reward booking?
Would they be able to impose something like a 60 day cancellation policy?
Or no refunds?
Probably has to match the cancel policy for regular rooms.

That would be bad for business on cash reservations.
But alot of people reserve with points but end up canceling.
Then they are left with an unsold room and lower occupancy.

I left out their unintentional reply all response despite its humor as people said it felt too nasty.

Dan looks like you wrote it this week even that article dated January first.
So it is not the first time they are doing it.

I think we're getting a sneak peek, so he buried it in last year's post.

It always has an old date when he posts a link to an article that hasn't been posted yet. Not sure why.

I think the point is made and people will notice as you have a voice in this market.

What I dont understand is that WAJ takes the liberty of making everything high-season, thus always 80k/night. THEN they state that High-Season is every weekend (for the most part) and they block the awards. WTF?

Maybe you should reach out to Reichman.

As much as this may not reflect well on the hotel, I don't think reaching out to Reichman will do much. They're looking to attract paid guests, not people booking on points

My guess with the occupancy is either an uninformed decision maker or the occupancy dependent reimbursement is measured by excluding award stays
