Great TR!!

BTW the Residence Inn is going down from Cat 3 to cat 2 which makes it a total steal! Sortis is still the best value for a 5 or 7 night Cat 1-4 cert!

Always praying for delayed baggage.

Residence Inn by Marriott (where we stayed)
JW Marriott
Las Americas Golden Tower
Plaza Paitilla Inn
Hard Rock Hotel
Radisson Decapolis Hotel
Hilton
Le Meridien
Intercontinental
Walforf Astoria

The Sortis is not within the eruv.

We booked two rooms and were upgraded. The points option was very cheap at the Residence Inn.

So u paid 175k total for the week (2 rooms) and they combined/upgraded you into 1 suite?

Any ideas how to get kitchen/suite using points without relying on the hotel upgradIng us? Canít seem to book online.

We stayed at the Marriott Executive Apartments and we loved it. It fit our family of 6 in one very large room, it has a kitchen (no oven), itís within the Eruv and 5 minutes from Shevet Achim.

i tried that already and the response was "The hotel cannot accommodate 5 guests per room" even when paying with cash.
