There are another 10k FT members on the same boat as you...
But why not using a free night certificate? I would've use 5 of them... Keep the points for another time.
Would you have to use 5 certificates from the same account to make it one long stay?  Or you can book using certificates from multiple accounts and somehow combine it all into one stay before? Otherwise if you wait until checkin you will have issues with seaplane transfer.... no?

From the same account or the 2nd person traveling with you.
Me and my wife have currently 4 free nights, they are easy to get.

Any tips from your stays at the Waldorf? What did you guys do for food and did they charge you to heat it up?

I brought POM meals and they charged per person to heat up each meal. The POM meal portions are quite large, and was enough for my wife and I. So I  heated up one tray for one person or did two trays "one starter and one main dish" to avoid getting charged twice.

We came from Phuket and brought tons of double wrapped food from the chabad. They did charge to heat up the meals, but served it on brand new china that I toiveled in the conveniently located mikva. I did the same for the new pan and cutlery they used to prepare breakfast with. Obviously everyone has different comfort levels and standards and that's ok, but that's what I did. I also brought a sandwich maker was excellent both for heating up some of the meals myself when I didn't want to pay (only paid on shabbos), and making snacks.

We also did the sunset fishing and caught several kosher fish that they prepared for us. Again, everyone's comfort level is going to be different. I would recommend being extra careful on which fish you eat as the names they tell you may not be correct and it can be difficult to tell.

BTW, dishes that belong to a non Jewish to not require tevilah.

Should have asked you a few months ago, would have saved a lot of weird looks and confusion.

Even if it belongs to a Jew you can tell a non Jew to take ownership and borrow it.
Obviously this is not ideal and ask your LOR.

What did they charge per meal to heat up? Also can you let me know who you spoke to about kosher stuff, especially in regards to breakfast?
