Reward Redemption change?

I was just looking up Boston Beacon Hill and it is telling me 30k/night instead of 15k. Every where still says any location is still 15k but it now shows tiers. Anyone else seeing this?

Also seeing 20k/night awards and 30/night award at various places.

Is this yet another scam where they hike redemption prices with no notice?

This is a Wyndham Rewards website system glitch. They added functionality to book Tryp and Dolce hotel reward stays online today and the changes resulted in all other hotel brands reverting to their pre-May 2015 reward prices.

Wyndham Rewards representative is going around blogs stating the change is a system glitch.

I didn't see Tryp availability come online for booking on the website at any point when this "glitch" was showing up on the website. And even when the reverted website again shows up as 15k/night max at any Wyndham property, the Tryp availability is still not online.

Did I miss that Tryp online award booking feature while it was live today (if it was at all alive today)? My screenshots have the 20k-30k/nightly prices while Tryp bookings were showing the need to call up.
