I have 10 SPG suite upgrades expiring this year. I want to book stay in Big island. Will they apply the upgrade now or is that left up to chance based on occupancy after I land there that day ?

It’ll be applied now and can be confirmed before, but I would say 10-15% chance depending on how many days you book
