Faster points transfer times to airline partners. Or at least a better tracking system where exact status and wait time is shown so an informed decision can be made when looking to transfer points to book a ticket.

Starwood hotel in Jerusalem!!!

 aint gonna happen People. *W doesnt own many of its Hotels and most Hotels in Israel are deflagging themselves ASAP

 means you need to come up with the people who are willing to committ the $$$ to the building of a new hotel or buy an existing 1 and pour millions into it to bring it in line with *W qualifications. somethig tells me that Mosiach will be here way before either of those happen,Unfortunately

i met with Chris, the meeting went well, i discussed all the ideas suggested above and several more with him and another VP [the other VP created the whole Cash and Points system,]  regarding the 4 confirmed suites upgrades, i was told that they have been thinking about implementing something similiar to this. With regard to Israel, Chris is flying to europe next week and will discuss it with the team that handles all Israel affairs, he did say that they are looking at doing more in israel,  i asked about the mamilla and was told that there is nothing brewing right now, but it is possible down the road... if you have any questions or any other ideas please comment, thank you

 thanks for the Update

 I dont see anything happening in Israel as I dont think *W wants to own any of the Hotels and most hotels there dont want to be attached to a Chain and be told what they can and cant do, especially in Yeru where theres no business reses to speak of

 as for Mamilla its owned by the same person who owns the DC across the street, who when he purchased the Hotel while it was being built as The Hilton DC threw Hilton out. Maybe if his sales are very slow and as the WA approaches being finsihed, he might relent but thats  2 -3 yrs off from now. So w/o any other hotel being built in Yeru I just dont see where or how *W can renter. could be they might be able to geta 4 Pts but the last 1 was The Knesset Tower now the Leonardo Inn next to the Ramada, at best it wil be a 3 1/2 * Hotel and not in Hotel circle area
