Not the hot food (obviously). I've stayed there many many times, and they almost always have kosher (cold) options - oatmeal, cereal, fruit, etc.
Lot of places have waffle makers with Ou waffle mix - ask your LOR but mine said its kosher ..

I REALLY NEED YOUR HELP!!
. We finally get to the GH kauai last night at about 9:45 pm Hawaiian time , after traveling 3 planes and over 14 hours.
We showered, ate a little, and As we were wiped out and ready to get to bed we see a swarm of ants in the bed.
They moved us to a small room and said will move us today.
I'm sick. Stomach ache. Vomiting. Exhaustion.  I don't know.
This is so unacceptable.
What should I do?
What compensation should we request?
Sincerely,
Helene

I stayed at a Hyatt House and we were told breakfast closed at 10.  When we went downstairs to get cereal and such at 9:45am they were taking everything away and the hotel employee told us we were too late.  I've spoken to the general manager by e-mail and he thanked me for writing in and ended with 'let me know what I can do for you in terms of compensation.'  How much do you think I could legitimately ask for?

UPDATE: Received 15k points, not bad considering it was only an $80/night hotel  ;D

Stayed at W Times Square.

Hotel room was boiling. THe "AC" in the room was running on heat. We tried opening the window, but it wouldn't cool down the room plus there was jackhammering going on outside.

We woke up with headaches.

I emailed the manager and they sent 5K points back to my account.

We stayed two nights with the same problem - is this an acceptable compensation?
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

Did you pay with points? Was there another room available?
