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.

If have the aspire amex card they gave a $100 discount in stays of 2+ days using a promo code but not always is it cheaper then booking strait though hilton with out he code.
And the Waldorf is not a resort so the $250 won't work at all for anything

The $250 credit will only work at the properties listed on hilton.com/resorts

Got the same. Doubt they can actually do that, contact Hilton if you want. I'm probably cancelling either way.
Response from Hilton
Quote
Please kindly note, the hotel does have the right to change the cancellation policy due to extreme demand dates at the hotel.
Isn't this breach of contract?

Very curios. Maybe Dan should post it on DD to try to get HH corporate attention. I am not seeing anywhere in the T&C that they have right to do that. Would love for this to outrage Hilton corp and learn these Israeli idiots a lesson...
