Iím looking to put together a Shabbos in a nice points hotel in a nice place within a 3 hour drive of Lakewood/NY for this or next Shabbos. Price of Shabbos is just the room/rooms you book, and we chip in for bought meals. Just basic Shabbos meals, no major standards, from a store with an accepted Hechsher. Everyone welcome!

Hopefully if we have enough people join we can ask the hotel for separate swimming hours and free use of a conference room for minyan/meals, or weíll chip in for that as well. Another idea is to chip in for babysitters etc.

Please reply here if youíd like to join. Options are to either be within walking distance to an existing minyan (check out this for some ideas) or to create our own minyan from scratch if we get enough response.

Has this been tried here before? Donít remember ever seeing an attempt.

Please chime in with ideas for a location. If youíve had a family getaway or Shabbos Sheva Brachos in a nice hotel that can work please share.


There's nothing to say about this area but @Talmid Muvhak suggests that this area is big enough to warrant its own thread.

On The Road / St. Regis Bal Harbour

Since it seems just about everyone on DDF who goes to Miami ends up staying at the St. Regis, @nafnaf12 suggested a thread dedicated to this hotel.

Hereís my two cents: we stayed there twice (within a week). Both times were INCREDIBLE.

Trip Reports / @S209 First EVER Trip to Miami

Iím not going to write this all up now, and I donít really have many pictures, but I guess this can still be useful information for those of my friends and DDFers whoíve been asking me for my itinerary. Iíll keep adding editing this over the next day or two as I get/lose patience.

The only thing I booked in advance was our Shabbos hotel and flights, rental car, and Shabbos meals tentatively booked, but never gave CC information or confirmed for the meals.

Flew EWR-FLL with DW and baby, with cheap United basic economy tickets booked through UR, on Wednesday night of Chanukah. Attached my Turkish *G and received free luggage, carry-on, and Premier Access, which was very useful when we pulled into the airport 43 minutes before the flight, but they managed to check our luggage anyway. Thank G-d for Pre-Check as well! (If youíre wondering what we did about parking/transportation, we parked our car in Elizabeth right near the Yeshiva and took a $5 Uber from there to our Terminal. Alternate side there is Wednesday, and we flew Wed night-Tues morn).

After our flight was delayed an hour and the baby screaming for a good portion of the night, DW just wanted to grab something to eat and get to sleep. So we picked up our car (Got a fully loaded Impala. Not much, but the free GPS, XM, and Wi-fi was good value for the 7.5K UR it costed for the week, all-in) and headed straight to Grand Cafe, which isnít Chalav Yisroel, so we had to make do with pareve items. As Iím still trying to maintain a carb-free illusion at this point I got a tuna platter and she got a hummus platter, which came with pitas and salad. Chumus was HEAVEN, seriously havenít tasted better chummus even in Israel. Everything else was ok, bit expensive but itís Florida. Booked us a room at the Hyatt Place across the street for the night, lit Menorah, put the baby in, ate our food, and went straight to sleep.

Has anybody filled up on gas in South Florida in the past day or two? Need a receipt for a rental car. Sorry for the cross post, just figured Iíd open a new topic and maybe others would use this as well.

Also, does anybody have credit card statements?  ;)

I'd like to get something standard, nice but not too expensive, to give to babysitter, neighbors, etc. for Chanuka and I can't think of anything. Anyone?

As per @nafnaf12 suggestion..
