Is it possible to add a SNA to a reservation online or I need to call?

I'm trying to book a 2 night stay at the 4points in Miami beach.
When I search each night separately there's no points availability.
Only as a 2 night stay there is.
I tried calling and the rep wasn't able to book it with my cat 5 certs because they can only be used on one night reservations. Any advice? TIA

Do I need to pay using my Amex SPG business card in order to access Sheraton Lounges, or just showing them the card is good enough?

Also there was a $10 tax when using a cat 5 cert, is there always tax at the four points in Miami beach?
I figure every DDFEr has booked that hotel at least once :)

Shouldn't the Personal card work too? Or is this benefit only for Business?

Only business gives Sheraton access.

Try getting a supervisor to see that there's available for 2 nights and have her call the hotel and ask them to remove the minimum stay requirement. It might take some HUCA, but it can be done.

Does any SPG hotel offer Platinum members kosher breakfast?

You can also have the rep make a "pending" reservation for 1 night and then have it manually issued (supervisor might be required to do so).

Let's not get into a "is it kosher/good hechsher" argument now
