Let me know if your'e canceling. Want those rooms.
I'd be shocked if they go back into inventory.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

+1.  They will not.  The hotel closed it.

When do you have summer or winter? In how much time? Anywhere from 250-450 I would think.

Standard room free night Hilton weekend certs go for $250-275 so that's probably market value for a Friday night

Is there a reason why I see exactly 0 standard award rooms through July? Last year I booked in June for June a week ahead of time with no issues...
Also very frustrating the rep on the phone tells me he had one shabbos (shiva asar betamuz) so I checked with my wife and by then he said it was taken.
What are the chances of something opening up?
This Thursday June 14 through Tues 19 standard room is currently available

Just Got this email


Did the Kashrus Change??
or is this just a declaration if anything bad happens it's just not their fault?

As far as I know they never had anything to do with the kashrus and I haven't heard of the standards changing

No, $100 credit if you book Waldorf or Conrad via the special Aspire portal.
