Which is why you need to tell them as opposed to assume they have common sense

Another potential loss is the growing expectation (already ingrained in many ppl) among the community that rather than be a 'friar' and pay full rates, just have a mileage TA can get you the rooms at a large discount. This includes ppl who would pay full rates if needed (b/c it's an amazing property, w/ a more trusted kashrus), but like all good Jews, want to save $$ when possible.

By making it easy to book with points, they're going to have many of these customers rely on the lower cost bookings rather than pay full rates, and conversely, even if they lose out on some incremental income (HH redemptions F&B > cleaning costs + breakfast), the change in the mindset among the community willl make it worthwhile long term.

Then there's also the concept of wanting a certain clientele and image, and opening up so many rooms to a 'lower' clientele may not be what they're looking for.

Why can't they just fix that by being more strict on 2nd guests staying, but primary guest never showing.. I'm sure there's a way to enforce this, They're currenly very lax on this, .
