Booking Ritz Before Category 8 Arrives in 2019

According to the Marriott site:

An eighth category will be added in early 2019. Until then, Category 8 hotels will be available at Category 7 pricing.

It is high time you book these Ritz hotels at 60k points before the rate goes up to 85k next year:

The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami USA
The Ritz-Carlton New York, Central Park USA
The Ritz-Carlton, Bachelor Gulch USA
The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman Cayman Islands
The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong China
The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto Japan
The Ritz-Carlton, Lake Tahoe USA
The Ritz-Carlton, Naples USA
The Ritz-Carlton, St. Thomas Virgin Islands (US)
The Ritz-Carlton, Tokyo Japan

Till then the other Ritz properties look decently attainable, keep in mind the new SPG Lux and Ritz Caerd holders get a 50K room for free each year:

You can see there are plenty of 50k Ritz properties:
