Lodging - With absolute divine intervention, I came across a Fairfield Inn & Suites in Williamstown MA, for 5K Marriott points a night! We needed 4 rooms for 2 nights, which was a total 40K point total. The hotel opened in December and it was clean and comfy and a great base to some of the places we planned to visit. The pool and fitness room were closed, and they make you wear face masks in the public areas. Overall, I felt I finally some good usage for my Marriott points. https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/albfw-fairfield-inn-and-suites-williamstown/
How do you ensure rooms with an adjoining door? They refuse to guarantee it until the day of the trip.

@yaakov @dovy2 It would be more convenient if we could have a minyan in the hotel. Is that a possibility?

The Minyan is literally 2 min away.
Maybe for mincha / maariv might make sense

Based on the jewishberkshires.com website it seems like it's for anyone. Does anyone know different? I plan on staying in the Wyndham right across from Jiminy Aug. 23-25.

there are minyanim at Jiminy Peak and at Chabad of the Berkshires in Pittsfield, MA. Minyanim are open to all.
