Has anyone stayed at the Laylow in HNL?  It's a Marriott branded property.

The Oahu Kosher website has the following message:

"Oahu Kosher's hot food delivery service is on hiatus.
If you would like to order Kosher products or Challah, please email info@oahukosher.com.
Stay tuned to this website for updates on what comes next."

Does anyone know what is going on with Oahu Kosher and if they will start offering food again soon?  Any other options for take out or delivery of food in Oahu?

What do you do after your dreams come true?

Going to be in Honolulu for shabbos in February. Any shabbos friendly hotels close to the Chabad house, that would open the door for me on Friday night, and that would let me check out on shabbos, and pick up my suitcase after shabbos? Looking at the Hilton double tree (closest to Chabad) but not sure if they will do all that.
Any suggestions?

is arriving on a Southwest interisland flight at 4:55pm too tight to make a 6:15pm United flight back to the states?

If you're checking luggage, yes.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I am.

Guess will have to take the earlier flight that arrives @ 3ish and sit around for 3 hours.

Going to Hawaii for 5 nights with Wife. Staying in Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach. Never really planned a trip before.

Any tips, suggestions, or ideas? Appreciate it!

Does anyone have a real information regarding the chef of the restaurant being the one giving supervision? Is he not accountable to anyone?

I have no first hand knowledge, but the Chabad website claims that the restaurant is under Chabad hashgacha. Only the private Oahu Kosher seems to be under chef/owner self hashgacha.

Speak to a LOR or Kashrus advisor. My research and discussion with those in Kasrush and Vaad work came out to show that the Chabad hashgacha is less reliable than the private chef/self-hashgacha. I.e., the chef is very erlich and is constantly asking a mashgiach questions etc.

I appreciate this information.
The downside of the private place is that he practically does not have a hechsher, and we should only be buying food from a place with a hachsher

what's the difference between him and someone who gives himself hashgacha?

No difference. That's why it's a problem
The other place could be considered a separate entity that has hashgacha from the chabad rabbi. That means that the workers over there are accountable to someone
