So I would like to stay there for a fri night and am wondering what they would do on shabbos. I asked them and they said if i stay till 6pm its half day charge after 6 is a full day.

I thought maybe since they are just opening in august they'd be more accommodating for frum clientele.

What do they do in other hotels?

Still not. I thought about reaching out to them, but I'm holding off for now.

I was there recently, there were quite a few Reichman women on site, and one of the guys with them, told me they own it.
