If anyone is planing on staying at Waldorf and not eating the free breakfast (Hechsher, Early flight, etc') please PM shimino1

defintly a upgrade but not a suite. You would have to work very hard to get a suite. The upgrades are very nice. Enjoy your stay.

We were thinking of staying at the WA during C'H Sukkot, but it looks fully booked -- award, revenue, everything. Did I miss the boat?

I can't find availability all summer for 2 adults, 2 children,  are there no rooms that can accommodate that?

Has anyone here stayed with two children?

Yes, you must change your search to only have 2ppl per room of no standard rooms will ever show up.

Yep, they blocked all standard rooms for Sukkot and now they look almost sold out of all different rooms.

After their first Succos season, they blocked out award nights for all of Succos.
