Does anyone know if IHG only releases award nights within a month or 2 ahead? I don't see any availability past January 15 for the year

All the blogs I read write that the summer months, which is our winter is wet season and Winter is dry season and usually has day after day of sunshine and blue skies

That's neither here nor there... the fact is that the forecast is unreliable, no matter the season.

You're clearly demonstrating the book the 2 week out approach.  ;)

The cancellation deadline is 1 week prior, don't see why a 2 week approach makes any sense.

In fact the only approach that makes any sense for any awards is checking several times daily.

Very possible.

AA, DL, FB, etc.
