I found a tzmmier in  Tiberias ( Tevirayah) on Akhva Street. Is that near the chareidi part of town? if not are there shabbos minyanim there?

Ramada and Jerusalem Garden also have OU

If the question is regarding Pesach, other hotels step it up for the Pesach holiday
OU is not mehadrin according to rabbi weiner

Not mehadrin? That seems strange

What does it mean for a hechsher to be or not be mehadrin? Unless you just mean not reliable

How are you able to book the Prima Palace with UR? It shows me that only other Prima hotels can be booked with UR.

I've looked into it further, sometimes it's available, sometimes not.

anyone know the cost of meals by prima palace over pesach? for sedarim too

I don’t know this hotel specifically but Seder meals in most hotels are $200+ pp and Shabbos and Yom Tov are around $100.

I'm thinking of booking the Lev Yerushalayim over the Leonardo, both using Sapphire points, as the Lev is almost 1/3 of the price and is closer to Geula. I have enough point for both, but I'm not sure splurging for the Leonardo is worth it. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Got it. They are both listed as rabbanut mehadrin, though I understand that there is a difference between different hotels as to what rabbanut mehadrin means. Does anyone have any info re the difference between these two?
