@Dan I have to be a bit skeptical about the all suite hotel pricing.
+1. I was surprised at the overly positive post.

I also have a very hard time believing that hotels like the St. Regis MLE will actually be bookable at that price. At the very least they'll probably make the entire calendar peak pricing.

Even peak would be too generous.

Current pricing isnt actually bookable, so why would I believe that the future one will be?

@Dan when you put together your post on all of these changes can you please feature this hotel as a possibility of benefiting by booking now? Maybe I'll get a minyan for yeshiva week ;)

I've been busy and out of the loop here.  Just want to make sure I am following. If I booked the Gritti Palace for August- then come August I can call up to get a refund?

Unclear.

Got it- It DID seem implied in your post though. As far as I understood.

I have a anniversary night, 7 night 1-5, and a reinstated reward cert that says partial package 1-5 45,000 points. IIRC, these may very well all be more valuable or usable come August? They expire in November, and was thinking to use them at the end of the summer

Interesting point of view
Debby downer. There are easy responses to all 3 of those, but I've got other DDMS posts to work on.

I still dont get how to resolve the fact that the "current pricing" is not available at all for those luxury hotels.

I don't understand why you're so optimistic about this.
