Have a bunch of random pictures, breakfast, shabbat dinner menu, lobby pics, etc from my recent trip.

Anyone here care for them (for me to post) or nah since they are the same as most other ones out there?

So L'emayseh, there is no difference in the experience here between Gold and Diamond members?

I would assume that Diamond members get nicer upgrades. As a Diamond myself, I got a one-bedroom suite last time I was here.

I think you were the only one who successfully got a suite. Most Diamond's here only git s deluxe room. After begging... Also between the 1 br suite and a deluxe balcony room, I think people like better the deluxe balcony room.

I didn't have to even ask; they just gave it to me. The view was awful, though it was Shabbos so it was still better than having to take all those stairs.

I have pics of both that I can dig up if you want.
The Deluxe room is the nicer room, nicer bathroom, and has the balcony.
The suite has more space.

A couple should definitely take the deluxe room. A family should definitely push for the suite.
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.

Not the base 1BR that they upgrade to.

Please post pics.

@Dan I get the point, but post pics anyway when you get a chance... So we can get a wiki of all the rooms. Now my question is as a couple, the 1 BR is out, should we push for the junior suite with balcony or a deluxe with balcony?

You tried pushing for a 1 br with a balcony?

Is anyone there over Pesach?  At the Seders?  In their restaurants Chol HaMoed?  Any comments or info?  Hoping to go next year and was hoping some of you guys could tell us about the Pesach experience.
