Not sure what is with all this sky is falling. There are still killer deals, no?

Going to take a long time for that frog to be done at this rate. 45k for PH NYC is a steal. Would have to go over 100k for me to reconsider. I guess I look at it from the point of view of what it costs to generate points.

PH was 18K not long ago. Soft bigotry of low expectations.

Also, Andaz 5th is arguably a better deal at 25K vs 30K.

Probably will try Andaz next time.
I think we just look at differently. From were you sit you are probably right but from a MS view it is no big deal. It would be like going from 6x to 5x. Yes that is a major cut but 5x is still a killer deal.

is PH NYC going up to a cat 8? It seems to be a cat 7 which will be 35k on peak..

Going dynamic.  PH up to 45K possibly during peak.  Another nail in the coffin.

Oh, they will.  It's just a question of when.  Perhaps they'll include a juggle of properties this time, too. No way to know.
