you do realize that the hotels are not obligated to give you free kosher breakfast. It is a nice thing that some do. That being said the Andaz 5th gives free kosher breakfast to globalists
Yes of course. Sry if I came accross as entitled. For a 5 star hotel that charges $1200 a night after tax, that prides itself on service(st Regis), and I happen to be the highest level of platinum, if I get free hotel breakfast that isn't kosher, IMHO they should offer at least $20 per person of food from a Kosher restaurant.

the moment the SR added the scammy $50 "destination fee" I lost all of my trust in them

I was Plat before the merger (not sure if Plat Elite is viewed as lower in their eyes now), and got into a suite, but no one would confirm it until I checked in and found out they put me in a suite.

At the SR right now, I'm plat ambassador btw, my ambassador wasn't a help trying to get kosher breakfast. Concierge offered to order it but the hotel wouldn't pay for it. I got an upgrade to a "grand luxe room" not a suite. Butler service took about 15 min. The room is decent and the turndown service is cool, but next time I'll just stick with the PH, especially with this $50 destination fee mishagas
