Marriott or Starwood Properies to Book Before 2019
The new award chart temporarily does not have a tier 8, or “peak” pricing, so everything maxes out at 60,000 points per night. Is there a comprehensive list anywhere of the really top hotels, which are virtually certain to become tier 8 next year, such that we folks should try booking them over the next several months before tier 8 kicks in? Searching around on different sites, I’ve seen a bunch of contenders thrown out but no comprehensive list of the hotels that are very likely to become tier 8 next year.
If it doesn’t exist, this would be incredibly useful for those of us who are looking to take advantage of this one-time opportunity to book top-tier hotels for just 60,000 points. Ideally it’d be useful tog et a sense of which of these actually have availability, since I understand St. Regis Maldives and others are pretty much booked up for the full schedule already.
