So any secrets on actually how to use reward points? Are nights 'released' at a certain time like airline seats for award redemption? I keep searching and searching and there is no available nights for many properties I search - aside from the random Courtyard. Any Category 8-9, or Ritz, that I search has nothing, even searching as far in advance (~1 year) as possible. This makes me worried about dumping my points into a hotel+air redemption and not be able to use it at a location or time that I would like.
