I saw some mention upthread about having the hotel change the dates on an award booking
I am quite certain they have the ability to do that (although maybe only a manager would know how)
as i helped someone do this at the waldorf maldives when he needed another night after his stay but it wasn't available on points for standard rewards so he booked a random date and switched it to the date he needed.
I also have done this myself at a W in Florida
So although both data points happened on property during the stay it still proves its technically possible . The challenge would be getting them to do it beforehand .
I was thinking they may be more inclined if you already paid for some kind of upgraded room but if anyone has any other ideas I'd love to hear

When will they release award availability May 2022? Been refreshing everyday. Also I been reading about that you have to book Conrad BB one night at a time right? I was hoping to get the 5th night free.
Currently got Hilton Moorea booked for 10 nights in case if I can't get award availability for Conrad BB. How does Moorea compare to BB?

Upgraded my award stay days to the King Deluxe Overwater Villa for 40,000XPF/day and added 3 additional paid nights in the same room. Upgrade to king overwater villa w/ pool was 90,000XPF/day.

Boat transfer: 15,000XPF round trip/person

What was the upgrade price for a regular overwater king villa? Not deluxe.

How many days were on award stays?

6 nights will be on points. Only received the following upgrade offers by email and didn't ask about other rooms:
King Garden View to King Deluxe Overwater Villa XPF 40 000
King Garden View to Pool Overwater Villa XPF 90 000
King Garden View to Otemanu Pool Overwater Villa XPF 102 000

Upgrade process was very simple and the hotel always responded within 24hrs.

Anyone know if we check in really early like 9AM, will we be eligible for the same day breakfast buffet that ends at 10:30AM?

Thanks in advance.

Also looking to plan a stay in may/JuneJuly 2022. However there is nonexistent award space for all of 2022. I primarily use Marriott but I want to burn a ton of Hilton points. They are pretty much useless. Unless you want to stay at a home N suites by hilton aka motel 6, Hilton points are useless.

I've been able to book top tier Marriott properties (Al Maha, ST Regis Maldives, St Regis Mauritius, St Regis Bora Bora, Gritti Palace, etc), with absolute ease. My experience with Hilton has been the exact opposite. The dynamic pricing model they implemented is insane! 1 MM points for an award stay in a regular room???

Looking to do the same. One thing i will say is that hilton points are extremely easy to accumulate. I'll easily have well over a million for a stay next year. It appears they are slowing opening space into next year. I'm going to keep checking. Will most likely bool with cash to reserve my OWB then change out to points later.

Iíve seen day by day and week by week - not sure there is a standard. Used to be day by day 365 days out, but have been stalking May for a while.
