@Yehoshua I'm assuming it doesn't exist anymore (that's just the nature of the game we play) but what is a "A+ credit" ?

Probably Barclays arrival plus

Does anyone know of very large vacation rentals with 8+ bedrooms? (I did check the wiki, I found one possible option) Specific location is not important.

When do temperatures usually become unbearable, is May still vacationable?

If I show up to FLL with a car that is supposed to go back to Mia, will I get charged a one way fee?
Probably

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.
