      not sure exactly the type of experience you are looking for but pretty often the Rye town Hilton in Rye NY has kosher weekends. they also have passover.

        What is Shabbos like at the Rye Town Hilton? Is the food good? Where does it come from? Who provides the kosher certification?

            one of my rabbi's in high school was an oppenheimer. it was his fathers hotel, and now it belongs to him and his brothers. my brother waitered there plenty of times.

            from what ive heard it is REALLY HEIMESHE. the type of people that go there, are the people that have been going there fo9r 40 years, no one new goes.

              Nothing like repeat business, must be doing something right. The challenge for most business is twofold, one is to attract new business (if they are interested in business growth) , the other is to maintain their customer base (if they don't want business to shrink). I guess the Oppenheimer found their niche. As to "no one new goes" I have a co-worker that actually went there for pesach this year (his first year there). Granted, he is not the golfing, tennis type; instead, he is always looking for people to learn torah with. I guess it all depends what you are looking for, or what your definition of "decent" is.

              I know people that were there for a Shabbos Simcha. There was no hot water and the toilet barely stayed attached to the wall. I am not sure if the bathrooms and showers are private.

            The Park House Hotel in the garden spot of New York, Boro Park. With more minyonim than you can shake a stick at. Located on the famous shopping strip, 13th Ave.

                I have also been looking for a nice kosher resort hotel for a family reunion. How is Kutshers anyway?

                  The rooms are standard Catskills. The food is good, though. The caterer is a heimish kind but with good food, nice portions.

                  Jackson Hotel in Long Beach, LI. I was there for Shavous and the food was OUTSTANDING. My family and I been going to hotels (for yomim tovim) for >15 years and the food at the Jackson easily surpassed anything I've seen or tasted before. They are open as a hotel all year, but they only do (Shabbos) meals when they have enough ppl. I was there for a regular Shabbos in the summer in 2008 and was similarly impressed then too. (Also, the prices are extremely reasonable!) I cannot wait to go back again.

                    What did they charge for Shavous (PP/Double Occupancy)? Also did they have a large crowd?

                      I believe it was around $400/person (regardless of how many in a room; Same price for single occupancy, which worked out well for our family) They had around 200 people

                        Not bad at all, I will have to keep it in mind. I love good local choices. As an example the best place that I like to go for a wedding is the Sands, nice, big, good food, plenty of parking and a short ride from my house :)

                    Is the kosher food good at the Rye Town? Where does it come from? Who provides the kosher certification? Is there anything else there for Shabbos?

                      Its from supersol. its a whole operation and you have to be "in the know" about it or friends with people who regularly go there. I am also not sure if there is a mashgiach there or how the food is heated up or prepared though I know that a bunch of frum people go for the weekends. I get the feeling they are trying to be "selective" about who goes for the weekend. I
