Some places could be expensive, starting at $750 for just a weekend. Then you need to arrange food to.
That’s why my wife and I frequently do the Raleigh hotel. Just pay for the upgraded room (the earlier you arrive, the nicer the room) and food is included. It’s basic heimish food, no shortage, nothing fancy but more than satisfying. Their highest level room plus food is $699 for a shabbos. Lowest room is $588. (Room options are $275, $325, $375. Food is $$129/PP. Check in Friday, out Sunday)
Mostly Chassidushe crowd (shiurim are yiddish) (I’m litvish) they have like 2 bungalow colonies as well with nice grounds. Dining room has mechitzas.
For just 2 adults- I recommend.July 29, 2020 11:02 am at 11:02 am #1887810

Do Mechitzas mean you can’t eat with your opposite sex family members???July 31, 2020 11:24 am at 11:24 am #1888378GadolhadorahParticipant
Unless the Raleigh has done a massive rennovation over the past year, I’d steer clear. From what I’ve heard from friends who planned to stay their last summer, outside the lobby and a few new “bungalow” type townhouse additions, the place reeks of the 1950s/60s literally and figuratively. Smells in the hallways, dirty linens and carpeting, ancient plumbing, bugs etc. If you must go, check to be sure you are reserving an “upgraded room” and ask specifically what that includes.
Also, consider the Oppenheimer Regis in Fleishmen’s New York. Also frum crowd with chasideshe shechita and shul on site. They’ve upgraded the facility across the board . Still not a 5 star hotel but a step above the RaleighJuly 31, 2020 12:02 pm at 12:02 pm #1888423n0mesorahParticipant
Mechitza means a dividing partition.July 31, 2020 4:41 pm at 4:41 pm #1888471zahavasdadParticipant
If you can daven by Chabad, Saratoga Springs (Chabad of Saratoga) near AlbanyJuly 31, 2020 7:28 pm at 7:28 pm #1888502GadolhadorahParticipant
Along the lines of Zahavasdad comments, also consider Ithaca (a bit longer drive) for a shabbos and perhaps a day or two longer. You have the option of the on-campus Young Israel House at Cornell (I’m dating myself since I think its been called Jewish Living Center at Cornell for a while) or the Chabad center just off campus. The Finger Lakes are an incredibly beautiful area which I’ve discovered many New Yorkers have not really seen.
Question for any location is whether you will be comfortable with indoor dining at ANY location where you aren’t guaranteed social distancing. If this is a concern, than check before yuu leave.
