Vacation. If too expensive, do part like buying them a DSU.

The wiki is from people's experiences who were actually there

I visited Toledo this week,  the Shul is closed on Mondays.
Can anyone update the Wiki,  it says it's closed on Tuesday. I went Monday for nothing.
Sorry for the misinformation in the wiki. If you read my TR, you'll see I was there on a Monday: "We knew that we were going on a Monday and therefore the El Transito Shul/Museum would be closed, but we planned on visiting Toledo anyway." I must have mistyped when entering the info into the wiki. Also, it said "Tuesdays?" with a question mark, so I'm not totally to blame! :P

Thanks! Don't see the Westin Bayshore on the Marriott website. Just Westin Grand and Westin Wall Center

Nice report! Thanks for taking the time!

My wife and I will be in Vancouver for 2 days and one night. Any suggestions of what to do in that short time? We will be with our 9 month old baby. Also, what would be the cheapest way of getting around?
Bike Stanley Park
Aquarium (itís in the park)
UBC TreeWalk
YVR is a car city - need it to get to the restaurants and many activities. If you stay at Weston bayshore youcan walk to the park which would cover 2 of the activities I listed.

I used a DSU to upgrade to a Club Corner Suite in the regular tower, so I also had a hot tub on the porch. All the pools attached to rooms are shared by a few rooms and not private at all, so I don't see the excitement of those (especially considering that the main pools are right outside the hotel and were mostly empty when I was there. Butler didn't entice me enough to settle for a smaller room in turquoise over the suite in the club tower.

I would very much appreciate recommendations for food.

Will be in Surfside for 2.5 days.  Where should I be eating out breakfast, lunch and dinner the the first days and breakfast and lunch the last day?

See my TR. In sum, we liked 26 Sushi & Tapas, Cina Citta, Shabbos food at Kosh was okay but can't comment on weekday food. Rustiko was very weird menu and would avoid.

No private pools but cancun might be the happy medium between Miami and places without food.

The beach in Miami in not good imo and the weather is too unpredictable in the winter to be able to count on. Cancun in January wasn't hot when we went, but  it was in the 70s in cancun the same weekend that had 50s in miami.
Happy medium aside from the murders :P

Any Chabad with a minyan during the week or Shabbos in Barcelona?
Not that I could find. In 2014 there was 1 Chabad guy who was the Mashgiach at Maccabi and I believe there was a separate Chabad Rav that provided the Hechsher there, but I couldn't find a Chabad Minyan.

Was in BCN for less than 24 hours this week.

Lunch at Shaq Shuq which I was a bit disappointed with. Dinner at Ilan's Burger which was excellent.#

Unfortunately the shul in the Call was closed due to Labour Day.
Didn't go to Maccabi?? Haven't heard of Ilan's - glad to hear there are new options.

Any recommendations for a hotel using points within walking distance to a shul in Barcelona on Shabbos?  I would prefer using Bonvoy points.
There's only 1 active Shul - Comunidad Israelita de Barcelona and it barely had a Minyan during the week. I'd first check that they have a Minyan on Shabbos before planning my stay around it.

Which Marriott hotel is best to book? Keeping in mind, I'm hoping to utilize Suite Night Awards.
Marriott Wailea
