When I try to see reward availability at SR, the OWV always come up as a premium redemption, costing 100-140K per night. Am I doing something wrong? How are other people getting OWV at SR for the base 60K redemption, or is everybody paying the upcharge for it?
They got it before when it was a glitch and pricing out wrong. You can only get a garden room for 60K now

Waldorf Astoria looks amazing and is now bookable. I didnít see any standard rooms but if anyone does find any, please post...it looks like it blows the SR and Conrad away...

And I just came here to post the rooms don't hold a candle to the SR.

It doesn't show a charge for a transfer from the airport.
Does that mean that the airport transfer is free? If so, the minimum $1200 or so saved should more then offset the extra 100k points needed.

The WA would have to really be special to be worthwhile booking a beach villa there for 120k over an OWV at the conrad for 90k.

What are the odds WA will upgrade a diamond to OWV if I book a beach villa on points at an off-peak time?
