Very recommended for August, as long as you enjoy 110 high temperatures.
Oh don't worry, it's a dry heat. ;)
As my wife always says, "Sticking your head in an oven is also dry heat"!

@chikkymonkey - how many stars is the hyatt on PL?

did u have to add other areas of lesser star rating or did you get it right away?

thx!

I got it right away... my experience with priceline is pretty positive if you do it last minute... on the other hand I once mistakingly did it in advance and paid over double what I would have paid had I waited a few weeks...

Good location right in the middle of town where the thursday night street fair is.
Not a resort like nearby Hyatt Grand Champions though.

A shul within walking or driving distance?
The USA is a rather large place...maybe start a new thread.

Deepwell and Twin Palms are both within walking distance of the shul.  There are others as well, but it can be hard to know for sure if they're within walking distance without asking first.
You can search on VRBO.com among many other rental websites.
