Hey guys! Need some noob advice. Before the merger I bought a 7 night cert at a cat 8 which I attached to domes of elouda ( as suggested by Dan on DDMS) unfortunately I won't be able to make it there. But I still want to take advantage and rebook at another nice hotel (around November time and not too far from NYC ) before the prices go up in March. I thought of St Regis Miami but I since I've been there already I want to try a new place/state and maybe even new country. Anyone have any suggestions on a top tier hotel with nice weather in Nov? I know it's a broad questions but any advice/leads would be much appreciated.
You can only book category 6 hotels btw

How come? If I look at the domes hotel now it's 60k a night. Shouldn't I be allowed to book hotels worth up to 60k?

Will be in vienna in May iyh. I have 2 days to spend in Europe before Vienna. Have already been to Prague and Budapest. What would you suggest? Thanks

Salzburg sounds like a good idea. What is there to do in Bratislava (besides the cemetary)?

Any other ideas besides these 2?

Croatia or krokaw

Sorry for my delayed response. Is it interesting to go to Croatia for 2 days? I was told by someone that was there that if I don"t have at least 5 days I shouldn't bother going to Croatia. Let me know your thoughts please. Thanks.

Croatia has a lot to do, a lot of different areas. While 2 days is definitely not enough to cover everything, you can definitely pick one area and do a whole lot. The 2 most popular spots are Split and Dubrovnik, go to one of them and you'll have a great time.
I'm happy to help if you have more questions.

Tons of timeshares there and they often rent by the night.  I'd check the Chase travel portal to use URs.

I heard if you stay at the hotel with the kosher restaurant and go to a time share pitch you can stay there for under 50 bucks a night
