the $250 credit can only be used if the hotel is on there list of approved hotels that participate in this offer. think someone posted link bfore. the $100 credit can be booked using a specific link or by calling and giving a code. its not a statement credit it will be deducted from bill at the end of your stay, its good for hotel charges like spa and food. it will not work on points purchases you need to book drectly through a specific link using those rates.
Can the resort credit be sold if one has no use for it, so it can't be used when booking with points?

Wow, if that's the case, why don't they open up some standard rate awards?

70% occupancy at super high nightly rate is better than 100% occupancy at low rate.

First of all doesn't have to be super high rate and 2nd of all it's an embarrassment that every other high and low end hotel was over booked  and the "luxurious" Waldorf couldn't fill the hotel.

Also it gave people chance to try other hotels and realize Waldorf isn't worth the money vs say the citadel or the orient so they lose previous customers that they had who come a few times a year

Good point on losing some regular customers who end up at other high end competing hotels.

I got a quote for this coming Succos and was quoted in a King Deluxe. I asked for a lower rate using a Superior room and was told that they doesn't sell these room during Succos..........
