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?

Any recommendations for desert ATVing or jeeping? Not looking for a full day tour with camel  riding etc. Just an hour or 2 in the desert...

I had a chicken curry which was great. Also the arancini app.
The steak was a let down.

Which restaurant would you consider the fanciest (good food) and ambiance or view?
