Dan's AC sensor override (VIP mode) instructions 
Most hotels in Hawaii have an Inncom thermostat. 
To enter VIP mode:
-While you are holding "display"
- Press "off", then
- Press "Up" arrow
-Then release "display"
You still can't open/close the balcony, (It still displays if the balcony is open or closed, but it lets the AC run while the balcony is open.)
 but the AC will run if you leave it open and you won't be trapped in your room.  Plus you can also set the AC to lower temps in VIP mode.

Ideas to enter hotel rooms with electronic locks
-Many like to just tape down the latch hole to ensure easy access  (simplest way is to tape the key card over the hole)
-some will just stuff the hole with tissues (you run the risk of it slipping out)
-on cruises, and some hotels, you can use one of those thin refrigerator magnets, put it on the door jamb to cover the hole where the door latch goes.
-others rely on the poskim who allow you to ask a goy (see above)
-exterior portable lock http://www.thexlock.com/
and then there's the best one yet
-Haven't tried it at a hotel but on a cruise I tied a gartel to the inside door handle and left a little sticking out the bottom of the door. I just had to pull the gartel and the door opened. :)

most of the hotels are in NJ. Stamford,  CT also has a bunch of hotels within walking distance to the yeshiva and shuls

just stayed for shaboss here

lots of issues like auto. curtains  too sensors... if your in you room or not for A/C and BATHROOM lights etc.

closets have auto lights and all fridges and mini bars

balcony has sensors for A/C to shut off when opened

had a butler pick me up for davaning and he drew the shades in the am

i had a full engineering team disable all the sensors and lights  besides the bathroom where we shut off the  lights and they put in a lamp

this is a really nice place to stay and they upgraded me to a royal 2 bedroom suite free (platinum spg) (hotel was sold out online)

i got 4 pm checkout and they packed up my stuff and gave me a day villa @ the ocean to hang out till shaboss was done its a real room with A/C  couches showers and bathrooms with a fridge it goes for $850 a day!


you must be very careful not too lean on the light switches because its a touch screen and you will turn off or on or dim the lights very easily!!

Not the fanciest place but eden roc is a pleasure to stay in over shabbos ! You will have close to no issues there especially if they give you a ground floor /low floor room

Anyone ever stay with Noam HaShabbos catered by Tyberg?

This year they offer three Shabbosim. The first is next week in Crown Plaza Southbury CT.

How is the food (quality & quantity)? What type of crowd do they cater to?
