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 don't have self clean but I have done it. Also love when they have the old fashioned exposed electric coil burners.

I've done it at an Airbnb-type place. The owner said we ruined the racks.  We offered to pay, but she said she'd just save the racks for us in case we came back (we did).

Is there a way to check how many rooms are available (for points, or in general) at a Hyatt hotel?

Was it reported here already?, finally there is a brand new Hampton Inn right in the heart of Monticello (next to the Shoprite) definitely a great thing for stay during the week, but is there a way to stay there Shabos? How can I enter front automatic door? Room door?  Is there a shul in walking distance? Etc.

I actually stayed there last week. Too bad I didn't check out all the details. Room doors are all digital (as is expected) it's a fairly small hotel. It's basically in the same parking lot as ShopRite
