Thanks for the update everyone. The stay in question was booked with points pre merger. There was a lot of commotion about it being in the new system and I don't know if its because its the holidays or because of black outs but I have the only points redemption room among everyone I am going with so I am nervous about canceling or changing the reservation. If it counts for 2018, I would be upgraded to Ambassador level. I have never been that far up the food chain so not sure if its even be that much benefit. The Platinum Premier level for the short time I have been on it has been fabulous with the free upgrades as i travel with family and the extra space helps quite a bit. It will probably be the last time I get up that far as it was partly due to extra rooms when I was still with SPG earlier in the year. And I understood if I achieve the status in 2018 it would be good for 14 months.
Anyone know if I could have the hotel break it up while I am there?
