    Please note that there are usually glitches in making reservations from new lists for the first few hours/day. i.e. it takes some time before the right number of points shows up in the reservation. So, be patient and wait a few hours if it doesn't work properly today. Mine didn't.

    Last weekend of Feb. Parents gave me and the gf two free passes to Biltmore. I've never been. It will be about an 11k HHonor point weekend as well at the Doubletree w/ govt rate and the 5k weekend bonus 1Q promo and the 4k Visa promo! we pray for no bad weather since the free passes turn into $15 off march 1.

    Well if this mild winter continues, you will be looking at bulbs blooming in the gardens by then.
    Enjoy Asheville! :)

    CP AVL was on the July-Sept 2011 list - we stayed there three nights.

    I'm looking at the HIX OAK for a night or two (when the rate finally loads), as we're flying into OAK three days before the Kiva Do in SFO ...

    I'm looking at the same. Maybe before and after the DO.

    I was able to make a reservation at the PointBreaks rate just now. As usual, it took them a few hours to get the rate loaded into their system.

    Priority Club seems to be settling into a two month pattern with their PointBreaks list:

    2/28/11 list for redemptions through 4/30
    4/25 existing list extended thru 5/15
    5/9 new list through 7/30
    7/18 new list through 9/30
    9/19 new list through 11/30
    11/22 new list through 1/31/2012
    1/23 new list through 3/31

    So, IF they keep their most common pattern, the next list will come out in late March and be good through 5/31/2012.
    Now that I have posted this, they will surely change their pattern next time. :rolleyes:

    Does anyone have a recommendation for a place with a point break IC (or other nice hotel) that would be relatively warm in late Feb (at least predictably warmer than Michigan)?

    Crowne Plaza in Phoenix, maybe.
    Or did you have a particular continent in mind? ;)

    Thanks. Nope, nothing particular in mind. My son has a school break and we usually travel for those, but we haven't picked a spot yet. We have about 5 days available.

    I don't think the PHX CP is that great. Probably won't be too cold, but certainly not warm.

    How does Tahiti sound?;) I just had my reservation modified for tomorrow night from 40k to 5k, which was great timing. It's summer here and the Hilton Moorea is unbelievable. Now on to NZ!

    I had the SO make a reservation from her account while I was at the hockey match. A great way to get her more cognizant of finding values when we travel; I earn far more points and miles but my accounts have been supporting our travel for a long time.
