I'd say a few days. The hotel knows already, they aren't very happy about my multiple bookings...

The real question is should the hotel or SPG be the one that cares?

35k is I think the actual normal amount for this category.  They just didn't take advantage of being exempted because they are technically all suites.  Plus it's a brand new hotel that they need to fill so especially the initial fall bookings it seems like they'd want to honor it.

30K is normal. They have the villas listed as upgraded rooms rather than suites, hence the small upcharge.
Hard to know if that was intentional or now.

They're going to have a tough time wriggling out of this.  It's a standard cat 7 booking. Who's to know whether it was "supposed to" be an all-suite double points nonsense rate that SPG has?
