I believe you have to call in to book the award.
Have you done that?

You CANNOT book an AXON for 5 nights. AXON's are for FOUR nights only. If you want a 5-night award, then you are looking at the GLONs.

This is the GLON award chart. SF Union Square is a Cat 7 hotel. So 5 nights will cost you 200K points for the GLON award.

You can actually book them online as well as via CSA.

If you cannot book your award at all for your time period, then the award inventory may be gone. As Gold, you will NOT be able to get the award once the inventory is sold out. What you can do is do it piecemeal, find out what is available and book with points. You may end up doing an AXON + 1 paid night if that's the availability. Or you may have a combo of nights paid w/points and $ which would cost more points overall.

Breakfast for Golds is NOT guaranteed. You have to set your MyWay to the upgrade/breakfast option. If not, you DO NOT get upgrade/breakfast. Also upgrades are always availability-based (unless you pay for the better room). Complimentary upgrades are NEVER guaranteed.

AXON awards are tied to the Hilton American Express card. It has discounted points on a 4 night award.

If you have the AMEX card then you are eligible for this. Otherwise you would use the award chart at the Hilton website.

+1. Only way to make it five nights is to AXON four nights and use another kind of award for the fifth night - or merely use another type of (GLON) award for all five. And, as we might say, American eXpress put the AX in AXON... no AMEX, no AXON.
