Great TR, @@yehuda.

REgarding @Sport's comment, who is the Shach?  I want to AMOR and would be helpful to mention this opinion.

Not really.
I can't get SPG bonus anymore if i got in this lifetime correct? I guess my best bet is probably opening marriot cards not 5/24 for bonuses then spending on marriot. Maybe buying ritz sign up nights if anyone is selling and combining.
Gotcha. I forget the rules. Maybe you're eligible for SPG Lux?

from a kashrus point of view, to use the regular bowl for the cereal for the hotel is considered fine?
also when i had breakfast there, they also showed me the pan that was set aside for kosher...
i told them it wasnt good enough for me, so they got me a brand new pan, i took off all the stickers and tags on it.
and they let me go behind to turn on the flame..
cracked eggs straight into pan.
used plastic spoon to finish making omlet
then they let me take the pan up to my room, so i could bring it down for the rest of the stay...
Wow. Wish i would have known about this 2 weeks ago.

You guys are in Miami, not Bali, what is wrong with you peoples?

You can walk 2 blocks and order a great Kosher breakfast, or even get it delivered to your room.

You came here for vacation, staying at a hotel that costs $500+/night. Go enjoy yourself and stop trying to save $3 on eggs.

Thanks, when we first got married and I saw on here how some people always seem to have family watch their kids, I thought that'll never be us. Thankfully though we have made it work a few times. Maybe one day it'll work out for you too :)

Yes. I don't think it's a good map (I much prefer Eruv maps made on Gmaps), but here it is: http://nebula.wsimg.com/d994a2ab60b9a1451fb5ff9d3b80ff39?AccessKeyId=6AB3F3524E5D03A124B3&disposition=0&alloworigin=1

That is indeed what we did. But would have been nice to have the option.

If my MR you meant Marriott Rewards, then yes, it's currently 60k Points a night. If you mean MR, then no, although you can (technically) transfer from MR to SPG(Marriott). Also, you can technically book it through Amex Travel..

this is what im going for. so 60k = 60k spg. per night.

You can walk, it's in the Eruv.
In theory... 1 MR = 1 MT I believe. But they'd say it's not a good use of MR.

Ah. :-\
