This Shabbos in a hotel- Letís make it happen!
« on: August 19, 2019, 10:02:01 PM »
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.

Thanks!

A Shabbos getaway to a hotel for just the cost of the room (points) and food.

Meals (presumably no eruv), more Shabbosdig atmosphere, company, swimming, babysitters, less individual hassle, more cost effective.. a way to experience a place we ordinarily couldnít.

Also, we could make our own minyan and go absolutely anywhere.

Hotels don't generally give away conference rooms for free. I also can't see them inconveniencing their guests so a small group can swim.

but some can be pretty inexpensive... I'm renting a 1200sqft room this weekend for $200 per 24hr period.

True but people skills can go a long way.
