Weíre only 2 ppl
IMO just book a normal OWB and email them asking for what you want. Or you could email them prior to booking. Start with asking for sunset and maybe even just flat out ask for room 535 and see what they say. I would also tell them youíre considering other hotels.

So would you recommend to book a smaller room but with the sunset view?
How many people will be in the room? Do you feel you really need the suite?

I think we were recommending booking into a normal OWB room and then emailing to ask for a sunset view. Maybe even try asking for a suite!

We were talking about the suite. That's what jackfirst booked

I apologize if that's the case! Misunderstood the question.

Check out the resort map here. Isn't it just 535?

Check the legend. Itís every OWB on that side. Only reason 535 is a different color is because itís also a suite it seems.

There is only one on the sunset side, from what I remember from my homework. I could be wrong
Donít think thatís true from when I remember staying there.

Planning to visit in December. Debating between the St Regis regular overwater villa or the Westin in an ďunobstructedĒ overwater villa. Both cost 100k Marriott points.
On one hand the SR is pure luxury but it seems Iíll get a better room at the Westin.
Iíd appreciate any input from the community.
Thanks
Might have good luck emailing SR MLE and asking them if theyíll give you a comp upgrade to a better room. Not unheard of that they would do that even pre corona so itís possible with less business they might upgrade you (any status could also help). Other options they might give offer is have you pay for an upgrade in cash or points or simply nothing because December can be busy for them.

Is there a way not to get charged for the compulsory X-mas dinner at SR?

Yes. I got it waived by explaining I donít celebrate Christmas cause Iím an observant Jew. They waived it no problem.

I doubt there are any. Pico is the closest pizza shop area.
I would imagine any open pizza shops would readily deliver to that area though. Try Mucca Dairy, Pizza Mark, Bibis, can likely even Uber eats Pizza Mayven.

Venice

Venice. As much of a no brainer as you'll find in life.

This

I did do shabbos in florance due to cost (yeshiva guy budget). It was fine. Very walkable but not so much to do. We ate at Chabad and davened with the great synogouge. There no eruv (Venice has one) so the logistics can be challenging.

Thank you! Appreciate the responses :)

Not sure if this is the best place to post for a non biased answer but this thread is more active then then the Florence thread... Is it recommended to spend shabbos in Florence or Venice?

DP: Thought it was impossible but just got my nights extended for another 3 months. Called to ask if I can use free night on the date of expiration and she insisted on extending both my expiring certs.

Will the one expiring 10/7 work at the Hilton Tel Aviv for tonight, Sunday 10/6?

Sorry. Forgot to update that they all have been sold. In regards to your question, if a standard award night is available than a free night certificate should work.
