Uh uh. Ain't happening. Like Dan said, I'm not playing upgrade roulette on a (possibly) once-in-a-lifetime trip.

Speaking from experience, regarding the DSUs? :(
Worst comes to 'worst', you'll experience the OWB for some nights, and a beach villa for others.

I don't think the Hilton free nights cert trick is still working (to book non weekend nights), but that could also be an option.

What do you mean by "CC bonus + points"?

CC bonus + points means do not spend extra money on the room beside you cash and points and cc award nights. DSU is not from my experience, it's a quote from AJK upthread. Also, you can try to send a letter to the gm of the hotel  asking for a better option.

And I am sure the hotel staff can help you pack and move...

Bump...

W for 46.8K SPG on a 5 night stay is actually not a bad deal if you can talk them into an OWB upgrade.  Otherwise that adds $180/night.

Am I missing something, or is this info simply outdated - how are you getting the W for only 46.8K? They want a minimum of 90k per night... was that a limited time promo or something?

It's pretty simple, y'all. No pork, no porn, and no alcohol. Those are the rules.
