Earlier today I attempted to make a rewards reservation for The St. Regis Bal Harbour property for a couple of nights in Nov 2019. I wanted to lock in the lower points redemption before the property officially becomes a Category 8 hotel. Before I completed the rewards reservation I noticed that there is a notice of a $458 deposit required . I have never encountered that before for a rewards stay. Is this a deterrent to keep Rewards Members from using points at high end properties??
