Mmm, indeed. I am surprised actually that HSP was a cat 8. Now down to 7. Given that HSW and SYD are 8, HotP is a 6, ADL is a 6 ... although I enjoyed my stay a HSP I wouldn't personally rate it even at 7.
I'm thinking these category numbers are more about pulling in rewards customers than any real statement of hotel product though. If your numbers are holding then (probably) your category will hold. If they are dropping then you might choose (or be told!) to drop your cat level and drag in more punters as a result.
