I put in on the SPG website for hotels in fort lauderdale for 7/24-25 and this is what came up...
Was shocked with the St Regis C&P and the W south beach..
...BUT, it didn't work when I tried to book it...
anyone successful at booking those rates?

Lol...
Probably has to do with the fact that there is no C&P for cat. 7.

At 15,000+$275, doesnt seem a good a value as the other C&P options.

Yup, but man that's ridiculously priced.
Top-tier is really where Hyatt shines.

Personally I think one should be merged here. Or at least change the other topic title.
