Interim thread for posting hotel category changes that you know of

Given this post it might be useful to have a thread during the next two weeks (until the apparently top-secret full list is published) to note the hotels changing categories that have been confirmed for you by the Diamond Desk or another HHonors "higher up"

California:

Santa Rosa, Hilton Sonoma Wine Country, going up 1 category
Santa Rosa, Hilton Garden Inn, staying a category 3
San Diego, Hilton Harbor Island, going up one category to a 6

I know the Conrads in the US are going form 6 to 7. Tried to use my free cert for the Conrad Indy and could not since it will be a 7. The DD mentioned all US Conrads are going up.

Has anyone received confirmation from "higher-ups" of specific hotels that will NOT be changing categories? I am particularly interested in Los Cabos Hilton and Hilton Barbados.

As a lowly silver VIP, I don't have access to the Diamond desk and two calls to the "normal" 1-800 customer service number have resulted in conflicting information. One agent indicated every hotel was increasing categories based on the training material they had been provided.
