Early 2006: where are you using your Awards earned?

Previously I posted question about how we are all using FFN earned stays. Only one response-but was told that if I re post the question as to all type Award stays it would have a lot more interest. Hence this new post.
Previously the only one was mentioned is the Zurich H, which is a terrific hotel.
On out part we were trying to use part of the FFN Award stays at the Tokyo PH.

Not quite "early 2006"...

But we'll be using our last 5 FFN at Lake Tahoe next week. Too bad there's not much snow up there right now.

Also will be using points at PH Zurich in May ... first and last nights of a 2 week family vacation in Switzerland.

3 FFN in Istanbul Jan 29-31. Rate is $US 189 + 18% or $223 per night. Not the best use of FFN - but otherwise I would have to pay. Also consider Moscow, Sao Paulo or Sydney

New to Hyatt - FFN question

How hard is it to book FFNs? If the promo returns next year I will shoot for 3/4 nights in each of Tokyo and Hong Kong. These would be between Christmas and New Year's. If I booked them in early November assuming FFN dates were similar do I stand a chance? I suspect a Paris/Zurich combo for the same timeframe would be more challenging? Any comments greatly appreciated.

My vote would be either the Park or Grand Hyatt Tokyo...but I am having trouble getting availability for the dates I want in Jan.

Just finalized my bookings for 22 FFN's and 5 points night for January/February:

Park Hyatt Dubai 3 nights/FFN
Grand Hyatt Singapore 3 nights/FFN
Grand Hyatt Bangkok 1 night/FFN
Grand Hyatt Hong Kong 4 nights/FFN
Park Hyatt Seoul 5 nights/FFN
Park Hyatt Sydney 6 nights/FFN
Hyatt Regency Auckland 5 nights/points

I guess that I am in bed with Hyatt!

Sorry but I had to edit this couple of times because of a spelling and other mistakes but it should be good to go for now!
