I'm planning a weekend getaway this September, and I noticed that starting in September, the Associate Rate's price (not sure if we are allowed to post the actual code) is no longer cheaper than Friends and Family prices. Instead of getting our great deals, the price of a single room is more than double what it used to be starting in September and following every month after. I haven't heard anything from my management yet about this change, or if we would we get a new code to input that would possibly change the price back.
Something to do with the new merger with starwoods?
And in the past, I've been able to book rooms months in advance, so I don't think the price will lower as the date approaches.
