Book 3 and cancel?

AJK said I'm not allowed to tell. And I *really* need this job.

Anyone ever stay at the grand Hyatt?
andaz not available for my dates...
Wouldn't recommend it. Old place. I hear rave reviews of the Hyatt at Union Square. It opened just a month or two ago.

Andaz is not available for my date. 7/24. :-( Not even a regular room.

A lot of hotels are showing as sold out. You think that will change as we get closer? Any other ideas?

Of course it can.  There's free cancellation there until 48 hours prior.

I am going to be staying at the Andaz 5th Ave and i am currently a Diamond (challenge) status.
What should do to make my stay the absolute best? (eg. getting an upgrade and any other benefits i can get etc.?)

Looking to go to the Citi for one night.  The Andaz is not an option as I don't have the points for it.  Should we stay in Manhattan or head over to Jersey and stay in the Sheraton Lincoln Harbor?  Whats the next best option after the Andaz?

If you go to Jersey you should stay at the W Hoboken.

Andaz 5th Ave
« Reply #148 on: August 01, 2013, 05:22:32 PM »
I stayed at the Andaz 5th Ave this week and booked an Andaz King room for 22k. I have Diamond status (challenge) with Hyatt, so when i got to the hotel i told him it was our anniversary and if he could help us out. He had to go ask, but after a couple of minutes he gave us an upgrade to a Terrace Suite (really nice). Also, we called the front desk from our room and asked if we could get a kosher breakfast? They promptly sent up a menu from Milk & Honey. (We were told that we had $75 to spend there, but we spent alot more than that and werent charged anything.)

Do point stays count towards the challenge?

Hey I'm going to NY for 1 night  labor day weekend and thinking about a hotel option ...

don't want to spend a ton ,, since this isnt really a vaca and i will only be there for less then 24 hours .. (not sure if I even can get breakast as I need to check out at like 8:30 am)

Theres no SPG that I would want  to stay (don't want to spend the points on W time square - been there and over priced) another option is Sheraton for 12k.

so it seems like looking through this thread Andaz 5th is a favorite... for 22k a night.  I have no status with Hyatt.. . any other suggestions on what I should consider doing... should I Upgrade ? should i do a trial status ?  I assume I can't order breakfast so early the day i check out so not sure if there is any other reason .. well i guess milk and honey is open at 7am so I could get breakfast
