It still amazes me how much the HHonors reward program has changed (for the worse) since I first became a Diamond member in 2005. Back then the maximum reward stay was 40k points and it was easy to find a hotel that was 15-25k per night. It seems like every year it takes more and more points to book the same reward stay as last year.

A couple of months ago I had 240k reward points and I used them to book two rooms for three nights in June at the Hampton Inn in Jackson, WY (40k points x 6 nights = 240k points). I checked the seasonal points pricing for this hotel based on the change announced today and if I were to book those two rooms today it would've required 360k points... unbelivable!
