Paying guests get breakfast for free. If you are staying on points you need to be gold or diamond to get free breakfast. (source)

Parking:
Complimentary (No longer, is now 60sh for self park - Drago)

Shuls Nearby:

I assume they learned their lesson from last year
Probably. However I was able to book award stays over the phone for days where the website did not show availability.

So definitely call. Although Sukkos is likely out.

Yes but they aren't letting anyone book now. Standard availability is blocked as well. So at least there's a chance itll return. But if it does and you're considering going, I'd jump on it.

Odd how they're not allowing ANY reservations, points or cash.

simplest explanation is they got a getaway operator to host a succos program this year and they put a down payment on all the rooms (so they are sold out so no blackout application maybe)

I had the same thought. Wondering if the hotel davka found someone to avoid all the rooms being points bookings
