Anyone know of good NYC area (within 2 hr radius of Manhattan) Pesach programs that allow partial stays? Looking at potentially going away for the last days (Sunday-Tuesday night/Wed AM), and possibly Shabbos C"M as well.

Don't go to the Raleigh. It's completely run-down.

anyone been to the Leonardo plaza for Pesach (or maybe succos/shabbos i guess) and knows what kind of drinks they serve? meals are crazy expensive, wanted to know that they provide free mineral water/something above tap at meals?
Also, is there any sort of formal or informal dress code? I eat with my kids, and prefer to dress down for shabbos meals so i dont get angry at them for dirtying my suit, again.

2010. Their website says they underwent renovations beginning in 2005, which is simply false.

IIRC they include mineral water but not soda but that was some time ago (was a reg. shabbos, not Pesach)

and with regards to dress codes in Israel....They dont exist

i stayed once at the old Leonardo Plaza Dead Sea for Pesach (this is now the Herod's). it was a ridiculously cheap rate - I had reserved months before at the Meridien for next to nothing, but they had to move us due to whole hotel being reserved for a group and in return gave us full board at LEonoardo Plaza for around $100 per family per night..
Anyway, my friend gave the waiter a few dollars tip and he made sure we had plenty of soda, juices etc for all meals - and even gave us a private dining room....
I think the hotel gave limitted soda for Yom Tov meals, but that may have been  due to request from the organizer of large group at the hotel.
Most hotels in Israel will only give tap water for meals, possibly lemon/orange drink.

He's had issues before with his Pesach programs iirc there's a thread somewhere discussing it.

I know they are yidden but it's pretty gross. I was there last summer and the only part that's not run down is the recent renovation/addition but the rest of it looks like summer camp.
