Dan, I lovingly accept the mussar! That said, I had a NIGHTMARE w/ the property that took 2 months to resolve...even after a call to the front desk...so while PUTPAC might be the answer, with this property one needs Senior managers from SPG Corp HQ to resolve any issues IME...

Dan already did:

PUTPAC: Pick up the phone and call.
Example:
Q: Why can't I find any availability on BA.com for JFK-LAX to fly on AA?
A: PUTPAC!

call them and say you have a vacation booked and its not fair that they are cancelling you... when sheraton tiveria left starwood i got 10k or 15k for my stay that they cancelled.
I had a reservation at the dead sea just in case they did this but it was for 12/31/11 -1/1/12  :(

Nicest hotel in the Dead Sea. But by American standards... Horrible!
