At the WAJ? Not what I was told when I was last there.
Which is exactly why relying on what a mashgiach tells you can only work for right then and not even a short while after.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

Of course. I'd definitely look into it again next time as everyone should do on their own.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Just redeemed a weekend night for shabbos chanuka. Travelling with wife and 2 month old baby.

1) when booking, they told me there would be a $130USD charge to add the infant. Is there some way around this? It really doesn't make sense.

2) How does shabbos morning check-out work?

Don't add the infant and you check out after shabbos.

Thanks for the heads-up about this date!  This points amount is one of the benefits of HHonors new dynamic pricing. If the cash price drops below a certain level  then the points pricing switches to a sliding scale and I guess this is what the points price is for when the cash price is only $350.

Reg price is 405 and member is 392 so not sure how their scale works but the scale is based on the rate of 392

Iím honestly not sure. Some hotels set their dynamic pricing at about $.005 and as low as a third of a cent (and ratios themselves change for specific hotels during off season). Again, I have no idea how each hotel does it but Iím not sure itís based off the Flexible rate.  When they just had a flash sale in Asia, I rebooked a residence at the Conrad Koh Samui for around 60k a night less than my original booking and I donít think the base rate was that much cheaper.  Iíd love to hear how they do set points pricing from a TA or if you can get a manager to explain.  :)

Would WAJ accept Hilton gc's from buyhiltongiftcards.com?

Planning a points stay over shavuos but would like to pay for yom tov meals with gc's from Amex offer.
Risk is opportunity
