Anyone know anything about bringing in frozen meals? I see there's a Hyatt and a Marriott - does anyone know how they are with heating and/or storing meals?

Any recent reviews of the Hyatt Regency? I'm reading Dan's from 2012 and it seems like a terrible place for the prices they are charging..

Minimum stay? Or they could be blocking every x days so longer stays never work.

People may just not be travelling due to the *checks notes* pandemic.

For starters, I know they have specific testing and insurance requirements, so check them first.

Otherwise, I went last January, stayed at the Rennisance. What do you want to know?

I brought frozen meals and the hotel stored and heated them for a fee... But I feel like that's not going to happen these days.

I'll share the link to my TR.

Any thoughts on staying at Palm Beach vs Eagle beach? I've read Eagle beach is quieter but are the hotels as nice as Marriott, Hyatt and RC?

Is there a chance the GM can open points availability for the Hyatt Regency? I don't know what authority they have
