Anyone know if the WAJ will heat up (double wrapped) shabbos meals for a guest?

Looking to book a week-long stay at WAJ - revenue stay for Tues-Sat combined with two purchased certs for Sat-Mon.  Any issues using the cert with me as additional guest on the back-end?  Assume that I won't need to switch rooms in the middle... anyone here with a DP/experience in this area?
I was in a somewhat similar situation, and it wasn't an issue.

Used my points for nights 1-5 and DW's points for night 6 (and added myself as 2nd guest). Even though I specified it was 1 long reservation, my key stopped working at checkout time after night 5. Front desk was able to reactivate it with just my ID.

Point is that they didn't ask for DW's ID at initial check-in or when I got locked out.

But if the primary name on the 2nd reservation was John Smith and not a name that could be your wife's, then they might've asked, no?

Perhaps, but worth noting that the last names on our reservations were not the same.

At any rate, don't ppl do this kind of schtick all the time? Are there any DP's of being denied at check-in?

I booked 2 nights from one persons account and the 3rd from someone else’s. Had no issues at all

What's a better room, grand deluxe or deluxe with balcony? i.e. how nice is it to have a balcony?

So strange, what's the advantage of a grand deluxe then, that they charge more for it and it doesn't have the balcony.

@gross5g any insight?
