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.
There are other investors,
But the guy who came up with the whole project, and running the entire project (with his wife)  is a Reichman ...

they told me that if you stay on shabbos a late checkout till 6 pm is 50% after 6pm is full charge. does it make sense for a frum owned hotel to do that? are people checking in on shabbos that they need to accommodate?

I know there used to be such a thing.. That the amex surpass hilton card gives 6 x the points at drug stores.. I dont see that to be the case anymore. I see the citi hilton card gives 3 times the points at drug stores so technically after $3.95 fees ($209) after 53 vanilla cards you have 1 free night
