wow. That's the farthest out I've seen a hotel. I guess it makes sense if they are going to miss out on some/most of their peak summer season, and then they don't make much money in the low season.

Correct. TOS say no, experience says no. If it happens (other than perhaps the Vegas/MGM quirks) you can't count on it sticking, just consider yourself lucky if it does.
