I thought I saw from LGA IINM. Besides, ISP is fine. The stop is the annoying part.

Right though for some reason when I was checking for my past trip. You were only able to book NAS-BWI-ISP and not the other way around.

the 4 free nights are for the coral towers that is old and stinks. The best for the kosher traveler is the "Reef" that's very nice.

Why is that better than lets say the royal towers, price difference is 200$ a night..
