I hate being such a pessimist but am I the only one thinking that this "award sweet spot" from August to December that everyone is hoping to cash in on will be a bust when there are no standard awards to book in these hotels come August. I like so many of us would like to take advantage of the sweet spot but the realist in me says not to believe in the marketing hype. Reality will be that they capacity control the hell out of the hotels. Do we really think they are just looking to give us such a good deal? And if corporate doesn't play with the award availability we all know that the hotels will just game the system before they give away a bunch of reward rooms. We have seen it time and time again with hotel not having any awards available because they just don't load the inventory.
