Starwood has a number of places. We'd like to use a TP cert, but if we can't we knew we might have to pay.

If the hotel is opening in Jan 2019, should the hotel start taking reservations now?

Not likely since they weren't with a Nov opening. Seems they are really committed yet. We will likely see a soft opening and reservations coming for the Spring. Unless things move again.

Evidence it'll open Late Q2 (May 10th)....
(read comments from local tourism company )

My guess the property wont be bookable until after March. Perhaps meaning we can't take advantage of extended Cat 7 pricing before Cat 8 is rolled out.
