    So here's a fun one...
    Now that the plat breakfast is a Continental Breakfast, anyone have any success getting the hotels to allow substitutions to allow for passover where you're not supposed to eat breads, muffins, cereals, etc., which is exactly what a continental breakfast is.

    Good point. Not sure what they would serve. :confused: How 'bout a Spock Matzoh!

    I think if you asked for fruit there wouldn't be much trouble with getting that instead. Doesn't require much prep and costs about as much as a well done baked good.

    I don't claim to know the ins and outs of Starwood, but I imagine it would be just as easy to find a way to run by a grocery store and pick up some fruit and some of the marked Dannon All-Natural Yogurt (Available in Vanilla or Coffee). Then I'd just take whatever points they're going to give you in lieu of breakfast.

    I am not so sure they would have to take into consideration religion when planning their breakfasts. There are many different religions that could all require something different.

    I'm also Kosher and would certainly not expect the hotel to have a Kosher for Passover breakfast - not that the OP asked for such. But as a Platinum, I would expect some flexibility altho it might have to go up the ladder to find someone with a brain to allow a substitution of similar value. Fruit plate would work well but in the end, after years of travel and my own dietary restrictions, somehow I always find a way to make it work and I'm sure you will too.

    There is flexibility. You can choose points instead if the meal on offer isn't to your liking.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised at being able to get another offering either (or at the breakfast including quite a bit of fruit etc.) but "expect" would be a strong word setting one up for disapointment imo, and my expectations would be the same as a platinum or as a "nobody" guest on a breakfast-inclusive rate.

    As a good (familial jewish) friend says, conondrums like this separate the Jews from the jew-ish. :)
