Traveling with 4 kids. Planning to spend Shabbos by Chabad at the Address.
Can anyone recommend a near by hotel other than the Address or Crown Plaza? (rooms are too small, and the big one too pricey).

For the SUN-TUE I would like to book a hotel using points (Hyatt or Bonvoy). Any recommendation on a good hotel with big suites bookable with points?
