Seeing reports that points availability has been pulled, possibly even C&P. Have not confirmed firsthand though.
Hotel info would be nice.

Nice that DDF/DD readers got a massive jump before this one died.
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.

Wondering if those that are doing  award cancellations will open up for awards redemption?.

Yes - Premier I believe is a step or two below Sunset.  By the time I got around to booking, paid upgrades were not available but was assured that they would find me something.  Hoped that Diamond status counted for something (officially it doesn't but it certainly didn't hurt me).  Stayed in newly renovated beach villa for 3 nights, and Premier for last two. 

Separately, could be that we had one of the first (if not the first) MLE/Conrad DO with eli5757 as we overlapped a few nights and shared drinks at the Gold/Diamond happy hour...


Great to be a part of DDF History. Just got home 3 hours ago. What a trip! Truly amazing!

I just called SPG 3 times and asked about numerous dates. Seems they released the awards again. 90K for an OWB and 120K for a Beach Villa.
The rack rate also seems to have jumped a couple hundred.

Holy cow! Ugh!

120k a night is basically like not having award availability.

Interesting part from the map, that the sunset villas are exactly the same... besides for facing the sunset. But they charged 250% of the points....
I also wonder what the St regis suites will be. They were even more and are not even facing to the sunset. From the pics they seem same size
