Okay so I know Grand Wailea wrist bands are a favourite (joking) forum topic, but I'm feeling stuck and would like your expertise.
My family of 4 is staying one night, the last night of our vacation at GW. We have one room booked through 3rd party travel website.
My parents now want to extend their trip (we're there for a family wedding) and join us for one night. They want to enjoy the pools with their grandkids.
Tried to book on-line for one night and it looks unavailabe, but when I spoke to a reservations agent she said there is availability buy minimum nights required for our dates, which we can't do.
1. I emailed the hotel to request a one night exception for a second room.
2. If they say no, I plan to keep checking GW website closer to arrival date to see if they have released unbooked rooms. Do Hilton Honors points help in this regard?
3. What next? Can I book the Four Seasons or Fairmont and hope that we can get enough wrist bands for the 6 of us...cheating, yes, but I'm happy to pay . just looking for ways to include everyone in the fun at the pools.
We love the beaches of Hawaii but we love great pools too.
Thanks in advance
