Don't understand this. Why would someone stay here over the Sheraton on the falls?

I think based on how many people redeemed with awards.
that would answer ALOT of the hotel category changes.


hence why Canada side with Chabad went up 2 categories
and USA Side without Chabad went down

I don't remember the sheraton eatontown being on the list. For some reason the link for the list doesn't work anymore.

Does anyone remember if it went up to a 3? Its pricing out like that now

If it did, it did.
SPG reserves the right to add and subtract without notice. Several hotels that said they would go down didn't, like the LM Rome.
