Is there any way leave NY or LAX after a Shabbos and be in BOB by a Sunday night, or the total flight time will definitely not have you there until Monday?

I tried the trick of "holding" a reward at IC BOB by booking a refundable room for cash and then releasing it in order to book it on points. It didint work!

I don't think that gets you a OWB though.

I don't think they charge a lot for the upgrade. CMIIW.

I just spoke to SPG Gold Rep about booking BB July 2015 and they said for both the St. Regis and Le meridian are 149K per night for 4 nights OWB? That sounds like a lot even for a Cat 7. Am I off or is that the going rate for booking OWB with SPG points? Better points to use for BB?
I am not 100% sure about this. But I am going to click it anyway.

High-end SPG is a rip-off.

Probably the most ridiculous thing about the program.

High ADRs compel the 30K price tag. But the rates are high at least partially because it's a "special" property, yet because it's a "special" property, they double the award cost to 60K+. So you pay once for the ADR, and then you pay again for what causes the ADR  :o ::)

Ok scratch SPG. Is Hyatt a good program for an OWB?

No Hyatt's in BOB.

Check out Intercontinental and Hilton.

Thanks, and I am also looking at Maldives for Park Hyatt but from what I read in the thread it seems BB is the way to go.

Not sure I'd necessarily agree.

Much easier to get an OWB + pool in MLE and the business and first products that fly to MLE are nicer.

Thanks for the tips. I will continue searching and see what the best reservations will be.

Has anyone here been to the Four Seasons resort?  Looks better than the IC BOB

It's more expensive than the IC, any way to get it for less? With CC or free nights?
