    14 days out. HK will kill you if you aren't VIP.

    It hurts a lot less than the initial purchase price to become VIP, though.

    Atlantic City actually... I have tickets to Cindy Lauper/Rod Stewart on 8/4. I want to stay over, but most of the hotels are $400 - $500 for the night. Even the crappy motels are $300+

    I live 60 miles away ... go down the AC Expressway towards Philadelphia (Deptford area) off RT 55. Or Washington Twp area. Stay away from the beach/shore.

    Unfortunately, the resort maybe sold out by the 14 day mark. You could try booking three nights (or two if you can) and not staying the whole time. I know it sounds like a waste of points but you’ll be able to book it before it fills up.

    Remember to checkin on the first day of the reservation ... DO NOT SAY you will be arriving late. Wyndham WIIL cancel the reservation ... weekends in the summer beach block .... HIGH DEMAND.

    Book at Sat and Sun night. That way you will only get dinged slightly as Sunday is less points. If you book a Friday and Sat night it will be more and you will have to be out too early on Sunday (at 10 am). Having Sunday booked too will give you lazy morning and afternoon before you have to leave.

    I book it this way often if I really only want a Saturday night.

    Was reading this and laughing so my husband asked what I was laughing about as he knows I'm on TUG right now. I, like OP, come to TUG for the information but really enjoy the humor. Thanks!

    I wondered how many people are too old or too young to get this one. That kind of makes it funnier. Hey, OP, if you don't get it "One Night in Bangkok " is a song from 1984 by Murray Head

    We have done this for concerts many times. Usually a Saturday show. We did Sat and Sun since Sunday is cheaper and we could sleep in after the late night.

    I have a reservation for next week and I cannot check in the first day. Member services told me to just call the resort. I will be highly upset if I drive there and my reservation is cancelled.

    You will be fine as long as you call the resort and make sure they note on your reservation that you called.. You could also get an email address for the resort/resort manager and send an email saying that you won't be arriving the first day of your reservation. I've just called but now that I am writing this can see how having that email as back up wouldn't be a bad idea.

    I would call again on the day of check in just to verify that it is still noted on your reservation. It only takes a couple of minutes to make that second phone call and I'm one of those people who will make the extra effort to make sure there are no hiccups when it comes to our travel plans.

    I guess that I am really in the "too old" category--I thought that bbodb1 was geographically challenged with a joke and was thinking that Bangkok was part of Hong Kong (HK). Well played to the two of you!!!

    You gotta love this website. Talk about ranging from the sublime to the ridiculous.... I too have that crazy song running through my head, and the inane video.

    According to the availability calendar, there is a single night available for 8/4. Booking it at 14 day mark might work. Best strategy is stay up late night of Friday July 20. Once midnight 7/21 hits, try to book the one night.

    Let us know if it works.

    Just an update.....

    So, we tried to book for 8/4 as soon as the 14 day window opened. There were no rooms to book. I continued to check occasionally, but no luck.

    However, right before we were about to leave Saturday afternoon to drive to AC, I checked the website and a unit opened up for the evening. We were pretty lucky, otherwise, we would have had to drive home after the concert. We were not going to spend $400-$500 for the night.

    The Wyndham Skyline was nice. The only problem was the coating on the tub was peeling off. A lot of security in the resort. 3 security guards in the small lobby during the afternoon. I think 5 in the evening.

    The concert was great by the way.
