The St. Regis Rome jumping to a 7 is pretty surprising. For anyone that hasn't been, this place is very different from the other European St. Regis properties, and the rates usually reflect the lower quality. It's a solid hotel, but doesn't compare to the current Cat. 7 european properties unless they've done some serious renovations in the last year.

The annual flip flopping of the Westin and Sheraton in Puerto Vallarta is surprising as well. The Westin as a category 2 is one of the better redemption values in the system over the holiday periods IMO. The Sheraton as a Cat. 4 on the other hand, is probably never worth that many points.
