    Mowogo thanks for the thread. In defining "award stays" are you intending to include SD nights or just point stays?

    I think it would be further useful to know which kind of upgrade one received and if other benefits were honored.

    IC Miami Chopin

    As an RA, I used a Sweet Dilema free night to book a 2 DOUBLE BEDS SUPERIOR room

    The day before arrival, my account was showing that I was upgraded to a
    2 DBL BEDS PARLOR STE WITH SOFA BED

    The room was on the 32nd floor with a partial view of the water. The room (and probably the entire hotel) was somewhat old but it was fine.

    Room was pretty much as Travelnyc2010 posted here
    https://picasaweb.google.com/104254689814580247305/IntercontinetialMiamiFebruary2011#

    I was also given Lounge access and free minibar which had a decent selection. Internet was also provided for free.
    I posted a picture of the minibar below

    Lounge had snacks/drinks from 5:30-7pm - also 2 free computers. Continental Breakfast in the lounge was OK but no hot food.
    I posted a couple of pictures of the snacks/drinks below

    I was happy with my stay and would stay here again.

    The Willard is in dispute, as they have been known to refuse benefits on reward stays

  18. I stayed there at the end of August , three nights for 120K points, received a name suite upgrade that was retailing for $2200 a night, two mini bars, no disputes at check out, and in fact whilst we didn't eat the snacks my understanding from other recent reviews is that they are covering snacks, I believe the management may have had a change of heart after some negative feedback, the pendulum has certainly swung at the Willard.

    I reeived a room upgrade on a reward night as a lowly ambassador. No named suite but a decent room [albeit, it was a staycation]

    I asked when I checked into the IC Paris Legrand and they said they would honor RA's on award stays.
