Hi all!! I booked a room at the Dolphin for5 days over Thanksgiving under my name. Question,it is my son who is the RN who is staying with us in the Hospitality suite. Does it matter if the room is in my name in order to get the RN rate or is it fine to just present them with his Rn identification upon arrival?

I have never had a problem booking the room in my name even though my wife is the government employee. For that matter, I've never had them ask for any government ID.

Question on the teachers discount:

I am in the pre-planning stages of a trip with both sets of grandparents (probably one set at a time). Both my mom and my MIL are/were teachers, with conditions:

My mom substitutes - but not through a single school district. It is a co-op (??) of a bunch of different districts thoughout the southwestern part of the state. So, her paycheck isn't listed as a school, but does say education on it.

My MIL is a retired teacher.

Will either of these work, or not?

A current pay check stub with the school name on it and guest name too, will suffice. An ID from the school with the person's name and picture also works for a discount.

MIL - if she has a copy of her teaching certificate/license that should also be good.

You could ask about the MIL retiree teaching certificate...but the pay check stub from a school is all you need.

The reservation must be in the teachers name and I think up to 3 rooms can be reserved with the discount - again check with reservations about how many rooms under 1 name can be reserved with the teacher discount.

Best of luck.

No, there are no microwaves in the rooms or suites. I know at some resorts you can request them, but I think I saw it posted on here once that they will not provide them for insurance reasons.

There aren't any microwaves. The suites at the Swan and Dolphin don't have kitchen facilities. They're hospitality suites with a parlor that contains a wet bar, dining table, living area. It's suitable for entertaining, but not in a home-away-from-home way.

Thank you both, so much! I had been planning on taking some of those new Quaker Oatmeal cups to eat in the morning, but I guess I'll stick to Protein bars Oh, wait, actually, I could probably make some hot water in the coffee maker to pour into the oatmeal , huh? Sorry, thinking "out loud."

Hi everyone,
I have a question. Do all the s/d restaurants still take AAA and do you still get 20% off? Also, if the AAA card is in my husbands name, does he have to be there when we are at the register? My mom will be with us. What if my mom and I, take my kids to eat and the AAA card is in my husbands name? Thanks for the help.

We would be staying from 9/14 thru 9/22, we need 2 rooms (my mom is coming with us). We got a government rate of $139 for our room and $119 for my mom's room. This is a pretty good rate, right? I am just concerned about the price of food. Looking for ways to save on our meals. Thanks for any help.
