We are planning a family trip for next year and the hotel I am looking to book, using my points, is slated to be a category 8 hotel.  Looks like you can only book (any rate not just free rooms) 354 days in advance. 


If that's the case, I won't be able to book until 2019.

When do the category 8 rates kick in?  The only info I saw says early 2019.


I seem to remember being able to book Starwood rooms a lot earlier but maybe that was a long time ago.
