Are there any hotels walking distance to any of the shuls for Shabbos? (pref with points)

If you are looking for CES ask around as there usually are minyonim on the strip.
Otherwise nothing really close.

The closest used to be rabbi wasser from LVH near the convention center, but his website seems down

The main thing is that we would prefer not to eat the Friday night Shabbos Seuda alone in our hotel room, nicer to be served in a dining room setting. Also candle lighting in Hotel room might also be an issue.

I was in Vancouver several years ago in June. The Kollel had nice big meals but I didnít eat there. A lot of locals with all levels of observance.  Would I call it a dining room setting ? Itís a Chabad house, not exactly the Same in my book. But if you want company itís great.

Top 3 places to try in Boca?

Is there even more than 3 at all ?

IMO Ditmas was top, others may disagree

Next option is the trio at Camino real. Butcher block / Asia / Mozart (dairy)

Didnít try century but itís not in the same immediate area

bump

I doubt there is a real answer
I would have taken aria as its the newest & I think classiest
Bellagio is probably the most glitzy of the 4. Wynn & encore took the middle road.
Aria & Bellagio are in center of the strip.
Between wynn & encore the encore is a little newer but consider like they're 2 towers of the same hotel. Encore is the newer tower

If i take  a flight from NYC - YEG with a stop in YYC,
will they make me collect my bags in YYC or will it go direct?
Id like to do a hidden city....

I would guess yes as you have to go thru customs. I only had personal experience in Toronto where I got my bags.

B&H is full.

Anyone know of anything else?

Maybe try calling the larger frum exhibitors
E.g. C&A marketing, sakar, z reiss, cta etc

Never stayed for Shabbos.
B&H is hosting in an off beat place 2 -3 miles off the strip. (Chassiddish)
Sakar used to host in different hotels (Sephardic)
There used to be at least 2 other groups but I don't know who is in charge.

I'm flying to EY, and I want to stop in Poland to see Auschwitz and Krakow.  Suggestions on best way to do it?  Thanks.

There isn't really an easy way as Warsaw is like 4 hours away & Krakow doesn't have direct flights to NY. You can do a long stopover. Or fly with a stop to KRK & take a low cost carrier flight from KRK or KTW to TLV (they don't fly every day of the week. But they do. 1 used to have a flight Wednesday afternoon from KTW
