Lots of people crying about Cat. 4 $400 hotels where you'll have to co- pay $200 instead of $100... except C&P availability was completely at the hotel's discretion, so you were never likely to see it during high occupancy / rate periods anyhow...

I'm much more worried about some standard suite inventory being re-classified as "premium" suites.
I've continued to get good C&P availabiltiy at expensive cat 6s by booking far enough in advance. I got it plenty of times when the hotel subsequently sold out.

I think the zero notice aspect of the change is egregious and is a big step backward in the rebuilding of trust.
