Choice Privileges has changed the award booking window for members (except Diamond) that can now book up to 100 days in advance of their intended stay. This change went into effect on May 9, 2018.
Previously, general members had only 30 day booking window, Gold members 50, Platinum members 75 and only Diamond members could book up to 100 days in advance.

Here’s what it shows for Choice Hotels in Oslo:
This is 90 days out and my account that has no status with Choice. There appears to be award availability with all/most hotels in the city.
Choice Privileges is the only hotel program that I am aware of that has had these weird award booking windows based on member’s status and still only allows you to book award up to 100 days before of their intended stay.
It has been difficult to plan trips if you can only book up to 30 days in advance especially around high occupancy periods when hotels fill up in advance.
