    Do the lanais have chaise lounges?

    I think I read somewhere here that you can charge meals at the Hilton hotel to your Bay Club room. Is that correct?

    Do Bay Club credit card charges show as HGVC for extra Honors points?

    Does anyone know what the booking codes for one-bedroom units mean? For the dates I looked at, only half are available; but I can't figure out what's different about these units.

    Aloha,
    I just looked at a photo we took of the building in May 2012 which contains several lanais. They all appear to have lounges.

    There are two types on 1br, one has an extra half bath near the entrance door.

    The descriptions are all the same and all for one-bedroom, one-bath units.

    I'm aware of that, but I owned a Bay Club one bedroom, deeded as 928 and it was 1-1/2 bath when I stayed there. I think its type D, the 1 bath is type C.

    There are 2 types of 1 BR units..... a C and a D.

    All floorplans can be found here... http://www.tug2.com/RepPages/Resorts/11874.htm

    I don't even know how to access those additional pages anymore but a search yielded the result.

    I booked today. Since I was coordinating with other lodging, I had to check several dates. One time one of the one-bedrooms was fewer points than it should have been for the days I was booking according to the points chart. Unfortunately, those dates didn't work for me. Another set of dates had one-bedrooms at two different point totals, so I assume they may have been the ones with the extra half bath, although the square footage is the same for all of them and there is no difference in the points chart. All of the dates were within the gold season. Weird all around.

    Are you right near the start or end of Gold week. Sometimes a Sunday check in Gold has days available that overlap with a Friday check in Platinum week.

    So its not just the dates you have to check it is the start date of the week that 7 day allotment happens.

    Was that the case for you? Beginning or end of Gold

    I understand this, but I was looking in the middle of gold season.

    Then there must be a data entry error. Someone else posted this problem where it was double the points for something online. So perhaps they went farther into Platinum for some weeks, farther than they should have. No idea otherwise.

    Did you look it up on the point chart, to compare what you were charged with what you expected?

    Sure did, and all one-bedrooms are the same number of points on the chart. So either the chart is wrong or someone programmed the website wrong. Regardless, I finally got what I wanted for the number of points I was expecting but taking far more time than I expected. (I'm the one who posted about the website taking almost double the points today--for this Bay Club reservation. I don't know if it's a site-wide problem or only on the Bay Club page.)
