@1avigrun Do you have to order meals in advance or do they store a certain quantity in their freezers regardless?

I personally would rather shlep my own food. But it's good to have a plan B in times where airlines misplace luggage  ;D

I'd be very surprised if they stock much if anything.

Any luck getting links for aspire credits at WA they emailed me
“ As for the payment links we will not be able to issue these links, we only will issue link if you have requested service and confirmed the price and it will be with 1 link or maximum 2.”

What does this mean? "getting links?"

I recommend @1avigrun PM you.
Generally speaking, I humbly suggest stopping discussing aspire credit publicly because it's becoming too high profile and the hotel started pushing back

clarification: the $500++ is excluding the food from kosher menu and $650++ is for your own food- they doubled in price since last year 😮

Crazy. Ask them to honor the previous rate as a repeat guest?

ofc it means that. What did you expect? you have carte blanche to order whatever you want from their menu, but they'll charge you $150 more to heat up your own food?

Again, the cost involved with bringing that stuff in is probably quite hefty. It's not like ordering from Bravo pizza when you're at the WA NYC.

And besides since when does Hilton go out of their way to order KSML for diamonds? That's more of a Hyatt thing, and even then, only rarely.

One of the hotels periodically sends a staff member to the Kosher Shop in Singapore to stock up on frozen products.

Interesting, but I do not think that's what WA is doing.
