I went to the Restaurant in the lobby for dinner, had a great meal. I asked the waiter for the check he says there is no charge. I tell him please double check (I didn't want to stiff them) he comes back saying the manager told him no charge as they are still not fully open and they are still testing.

chase
You can transfer from Chase directly to Ritz, no need to go through Marriott.
But I think the amount of points needed are the same as Marriott - 40k per night.
One Chase SP gets you 40k which is one night, so you end up better applying for the Ritz Carlton CC which gets you 2 nights.

I never said you should do it. You asked what transfers. IMHO its better to pm me and I might know someone who can get it for you for 380 or so. Don't transfer points its useless

Now that you told me you have good connections, I'm looking for a discounted rate at the Prima Palace in J-lem, do you think the one you night know, has a cheap rate on that hotel as well?

$375 is for a standard room, 40,000 points can get you a deluxe room which costs $625-$750.

TR: Just here Tuesday night and it was a great experience. We pulled in about 1pm they have a parking garage in the basement with free parking. We were escorted with our luggage to the front desk for check-in. We received an upgrade from "Superior room" to the "Deluxe room". They also provided us with free fruits a bottle of wine and a movie on the house because of my birthday :D. We were escorted in to the room and showed how everything from the lights to the espresso machine works and only when convinced we were fine she left.

Entrance from parking lot

The room was exceptionally beautiful and the TV was showing a personalized welcome message.

View from the room

The hotel is situated between the beach and the marina and I wish I would have gotten the marina view instead:

(https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-AKTT3pUIc1E/U-4IdwbmtpI/AAAAAAAAO5w/O4uxiEWJBVs/w982-h553-no/IMG-20140815-WA0011.jpg)

The pool is on the 12th floor (highest floor) with a cocktail bar and unbelievable 360* views (Sorry no pics)
There is a separate beach nearby but depends on the day if for men or for women. I bumped into one of the 3 mashgichim trying to collect a minyan for mincha and maariv and had a really long schmooze with him. He is a Chareidi guy from England and is employed by the U.N. (!!!) as their official Rabbi. Man this guy knows his beans! He told us all his stories about things he caught in the hotel (non-kosher cheese WITH a Hechshor!!) Although the Hechshor on the Hotel is Rabanut he said practically everything is Eidah, Rubin, or Landau. Some of the meat is not Glatt so by the pool we were told not to even get fries but from the kitchen they only use parve equipment (he also said the other mashgichim don't like going up to the pool because of pritzus). So on his word we ate breakfast there he told us what was Chalav Yisrael and what was not. Dinner we tried going to Lechem Bassar on the Tel Aviv port but I failed to make a reservation and the lines were nuts with screaming Israelis so we left and went to a dairy restaurant called Tib's in Herzliya, a 5 min drive from the hotel. Tib's is in the process of changing from Bet Yosef to a better Hechser and the person I asked said that all they are missing is the Teudah so we can eat there. Food and service there was phenomenal!

Mushroom Crepe, Fantastic!

Breakfast we ate in the hotel lobby it took a long time and they left a few things out but gave us 20% in compensation.
(https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-LXFEKUQD6tw/U-szsqV3gQI/AAAAAAAAOzA/woDb50mBIGE/w311-h553-no/IMG_20140813_124438_209.jpg)

The air conditioner in the room was not working properly as it was shutting off every 20 seconds until my wife called front desk at 2 am (I was out cold) and someone came up and reprogrammed the system right then! For the inconvenience they refunded whatever was left on our Breakfast bill!

Overall I think this was my best hotel stay so far especially for the $200 I paid for it (.5x40k)

Updated TR:
We recently went for a 2 night stay again and although had another really nice experience I was a bit more objective this time. Firstly I had left feedback via survey that was emailed to me following my first stay here, everything honest. Sometime thereafter received an email from the GM apologizing for the issues I had with my stay and inviting me to let her make it up at our next stay. I replied to her email with our dates for this stay and asked to be upgraded to suite and she responded in the affirmative. In addition I managed, with much difficulty, to convince a rep at guest services to give me a $100 credit towards dining or spa even though that benefit on the credit card is only for paid stays.
A. One big con about the hotel is that it is situated atop a mall and, although they have free parking in the garage and an elevator straight from there to the lobby, it is not very accessible by foot. See below
(https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-dGilWeLLx-o/VE1FAgKkDmI/AAAAAAAAR38/myFAij3qkN8/w999-h562-no/IMG_20141020_074719_840.jpg)
The only entrance by foot to the hotel
There is an elevator right when you walk in but there still is a walk from that point to the lobby... not very convenient that there is no direct access to either the beach or marina much unlike the mall beneath it.
   Anyway, as we approached the counter they greeted us by name saying they remember us from 2 1/2 months ago (must have had something to do with knowledge that we were coming). Check-in was not extra smooth as we were not confirmed in our suite and the receptionist had to take several minutes to check with the GM.

We recently went for a 2 night stay again and although had another really nice experience I was a bit more objective this time. Firstly I had left feedback via survey that was emailed to me following my first stay here, everything honest. Sometime thereafter received an email from the GM apologizing for the issues I had with my stay and inviting me to let her make it up at our next stay. I replied to her email with our dates for this stay and asked to be upgraded to suite and she responded in the affirmative. In addition I managed, with much difficulty, to convince a rep at guest services to give me a $100 credit towards dining or spa even though that benefit on the credit card is only for paid stays.
A. One big con about the hotel is that it is situated atop a mall and, although they have free parking in the garage and an elevator straight from there to the lobby, it is not very accessible by foot. ...
How would you compare the second stay to the first?

FWIW the place doesn't always have a minyan on shabbos. The mashgiach claims fruit & vegetables are gush katif etc.

They have a Jaguar on site to take you anywhere even pickup and dropoff at airport!


Is the car/driver complimentary?  I was there in January but wasn't aware of a car.

1) Have u been to other Israeli hotels? I can make this statement based on the very large number of hotels I have stayed at
2) The rooms do have a beautiful view however even with my gold status upgrade I found the rooms small + no balcony but maybe that was just my luck....

1) Yes.  I am not saying it's the best breakfast in Israel but certainly would not call it "embarrassing" as you have.  I enjoyed the buffet choices as they made my customized omelet to my liking. 
2) I guess I got a much better upgrade both times with an amazing view, very large 646 sq feet with balcony.  I also liked the way the elevators worked

Tzaddik. What do you want to know? Meat is usually Beit Yosef but they get Machpud and sometimes for Shabbos (and Thursday) they'll have some good Ashkenazi hechsher (shearis or agudah). The breakfast which I think is awesome they said was Rav Rubin...

I think you misunderstood me a second time.
The thread is whether we should go to this hotel, and if we can eat there. The answer is Yes. 100%
What you'll find (btw there are local restaurants that are mehadrin as well) depends on what they are serving. Sometimes most dishes are Beis Yosef sometimes they not. sometimes when they have a big shabbos they use a better hecsher. That will be on a case by case basis. but will there be something you can eat? I'm pretty certain of it. And in terms of shemitah, when I went there both times, everyone between the mashgichim and the secular Israelis were very Machmir about it.

Again, before you arrive, call the mashgiach. He will make sure there is food of your liking (hecsher) there for you. Once you arrive, you must also ask the mashgiach what you can and cannot eat.

Does this clarify it for you?
If not, I'll just assume you work for Hilton or have ESL.

Anyone stayed both here and the TA Hilton to give a comparison of an overall stay?  I'm sure the Ritz has better service and decor but from online the immediate area, views, pool and restaurant choices seemed maybe even a small step down from what I experienced at the Hilton.  I'm HHonors Diamond and will get breakfast, lounge access with free food and drinks all day and probably a nice upgrade at the Hilton.  I  would love to try out this Ritz also but am just wondering how the whole experiences compare.

Have any of you also stayed at the Hilton in Tel Aviv?  Was your great experience at the Ritz better than the Hilton and the perks included in a stay there?  I figured others might also be trying to figure out the best use of their points.  I'm willing to use more points to go to the Ritz but not if they are similar or its only marginally better.

I have never stayed in the Hilton Tel Aviv yet but I did have the most amazing stay at the Ritz. Will probably go again soon as I have 4 free Ritz night to use.

That's awesome.  I also was wondering how Shabbos is there.  Obviously it's not Jerusalem but do they have a shul on property?  I'm fine with a mix of people around as long as there are the basics.  Also I have kids and I didn't know if the one restaurant would be enough to keep them happy during the whole stay or there are other good kosher options close by.

395$ but you get 300$ per calander year so for the first year it's 395$-600$= negetive 205$ cost.

Post by: tafastamerubaLOtafasta on September 20, 2015, 05:05:57 PM
the AF is for each 365 days you have the card, but the $300 statement credit is each calendar year. Meaning if you signed up today you would pay 395 and get a 300 credit. You wouldnt pay again till nect 9/21, but on january 1 you would receive another statement credit. This is one of the ways to make money on the card.

So you get the $300 for the first year too? Or only after the calcander year? Because if you're only getting it after the 365 days. then how are you making money? You're down $95.

Interesting... So it all depends on when you sign up for the card? Like, now's a good time but if you signed up in January, then you would not get the second $300 until next Jan.

Delta won't work since it disappears too quickly. A refundable jet blue upgrade should be fine. There is no need to lie when you call just say it's an upgrade.

we just came back and stayed at the ritz carlton using 2 free nights. It was an incredible experience. We went with 2 kids. 1st kid ate breakfast for free and 2nd kid was free (under 12). The breakfast was discounted by 25%.  The food at the hotel and the room were fantastic. Would defintely return especially when it is warmer since the pool is outside and it was cold.

I stayed there for 2 days in December. To answer this question the hotels employs a full time Chareidi rav who also Serves as a mashgiach. Before you eat in the meat restaurant you must talk to him as he can advise you what on the menu is mehadrin. He's very accessible through calling the hotel and speaks a fluent English

I have 2 rooms booked. One is going to be filled with 3 adults (will the 3rd be able to just sleep on couch? How much is a 3rd person in room officially?) and the other room is 2 adults and 2 kids (under age of 4).

Any issues with that? Easy to request crib etc?

I didn't need any of the above mentioned but if it helps, I believe a crib was easy to request from the way it sounded on the guest services brochure. As far as money it didn't say they would charge(and presumably they won't) but hey crazier things have happened.
 And in reverse order to answer your first question: I had a standard room (which is huge) and it can with two leather chairs and a footrest. sleeping on those chairs would be really tough. But it's possible that some rooms have couches.

Just went here during Pesach for 2 nights/3 days with my family.

We used 2x2 Ritz Certs and got upgraded to "One Bedroom Superior Residential Suite" for both rooms which worked out great.

I really really enjoyed the Ritz. Breakfast is a bargain for $20 USD (after 25% discount) and one evening we dined there and it was some of the best food

I have ever had hands down. Got to be some of the best dining experiences in the kosher world IMO. We had the Beef Chateau which is some of the

best I have ever had. That coupled with a great list of wines, appetizers and dessert made for a great experience.

Rooftop pool is also a lot of fun and the Pesach burgers and fries were great too.


Best of all and something I never saw anyone talk about:


Ritz Kids

Children 4-12 have a Kids Club open daily from 12-7/730 PM with a one hour lunch break from 2-3.

It is fantastic. My daughter enjoyed it every single day and they have a schedule with what they are doing everyday and even made sure to slide that sheet

under our room door daily at around 10PM. They paint on canvases, have Ipad stations with educational stuff they do, have a daily Cooking Class where

they go to the chef station and get aprons and hats and learn about foods and make stuff (first day she made salads, second day she made cookies). It

was amazing being able to have her in the Kids Club as we were able to do stuff and she was able to have a great time there as well. This to me now has

become the best vacation spot in Israel when traveling with kids ages 4 and up.

Also, at breakfast they had daily entertainment for kids:

Day 1: a truly amazing balloon maker going from table to table for kids building the most amazing stuff from balloons (not your average guy selling you a dog balloon on the street but a guy building 747's from a balloon).

Day 2: High level face paint available

Day 3: Magician going around doing fabulous tricks at each table

The escort on the golf cart to the beach that has a designated first row section for Ritz clients is also great where you get free beach chairs.



Overall this is a 10/10 for me. Feel free to ask / PM any questions.

Ritz.

What about with Status?  We got a nice upgrade, free breakfast plus lounge access that got us tons of free food and drinks (they were nice about me taking out tons of sodas for my family) at the Hilton.  The Hilton has a Shul on-site over Shabbos. Also the pool seems so much bigger and nicer (including a separate baby pool) for my kids at the Hilton.  Granted, I haven't stayed at the Ritz, but for those reasons alone I booked again for the Hilton for my next trip (staying 3 nights before Pesach then moving to the WA for all of Pesach booked before they blocked points stays) although I'm open to the Ritz if others explain why it was better for them.

Also the pool seems so much bigger and nicer (including a separate baby pool) for my kids at the Hilton.  Granted, I haven't stayed at the Ritz, but for those reasons alone I booked again for the Hilton for my next trip (staying 3 nights before Pesach then moving to the WA for all of Pesach booked before they blocked points stays) although I'm open to the Ritz if others explain why it was better for them.


See my little TR up thread.

Great pool with kiddy pool. Free ritz kids club which was amazing for kids ages 3-12. Right by the beach with service to be driven to it in a golf cart. Got a great upgrade to a suite for 2 rooms for my stays. Amazing breakfast.

There is more but if you have specific questions, ask away.

Ok thanks, I just found and read it.  The Ritz kids club IS a game changer for me so I'll look.  And I see you said breakfast was $20.  Did they charge you for your child the same?  Thanks for all your help and I'm searching on Marriott now!

Just checked and they do have standard points rooms before and during Pesach but it's only allowing minimums of 5 nights starting April 6 and since I just want the weekend before Pesach and we don't we want to do seders there we'll have to try it another time...

I was there with a 4 and 1 year old and they did not charge me for breakfast. Don't take that to mean that they never do.

there is no shachris in hotel except for shabbos. there is a shachris at 8 AM in the laggon building, which is on the marina to the left of the hotel (if facing the marina). Walk alongside the building (looks like a strip mall with lots of eatries) till it turns left, turn left, (changes to apt complex) then walk to the very end of building. Its the last apartment.

why do you think they shouldn't charge you for late checkout in the summer? Checkout is in the AM. They then clean the room.  People can checking  after 4pm. Shabbat is over after 7 which means they cannot sell the room to someone else.

On another note, 500 shekels sounds reasonable since I think the TA Hilton said the charge was half the normal room rate.

I wouldn't necessarily, but it might be evident upon check in.  I have never been but it looks like one might pass a lot of personnel before being able to get into the room, so I wasn't sure.  Just wondering if anyone has had experiences taking children with them and if they tend to charge for the additional littles one or don't allow it at all.

Just booked a client in the studio suite with a confirmed upgrade at the time of booking to the 1 bedroom suite - not the executive which is around 750 a night - the one which is 1475 a night - and I was able to use the advance purchase price Room only rate - so came out to 468 a night - with a 1k upgrade to 1475 a night suite - 7 nights... 7k upgrade = crazy stuff. breakfast free because of my "stars status" (agency loyalty program).... a couple other perks in there too (managers note on arrival, special welcome for stars guests, $100 hotel credit for spa - or restaurant... pretty cool..

Thanks I emailed them and said that it would be complementary for my specific booking (i'm guessing they don't have many reservations for this motz shab). Usually a $125 fee.

Can anyone who knows the hotel help with one opinion and a couple of questions:

Is it worth the amount of points needed? I have Hilton [Diamond] and IHG [Platinum] points that I can easily use for a couple of nights ocean side stay in Israel. What is special about this hotel?

Does the hotel usually upgrade Gold Marriott members on award stays? Are the upgrades real upgrades or just rooms they designate as one category higher but which in reality are the same [like the IC game].

Is there an Executive Lounge? If not do they offer breakfast to Marriott Gold members somewhere else? Is it an Israeli or Continental breakfast?

Is this property classed as a "resort" hotel, thus negating the guaranteed late check out?

I guess for this trip I'll stick to the Hilton in Tel Aviv which is a known quantity and where my Diamond status actually counts for something. I'll take a look at the Setai Galil which I have not heard of although the fourth entry in the DuckDuckGo search - "Cheap Hotels in Israel with Arkia - Setai Sea of Galil Tiberias" isn't what I am necessarily looking for!

Hilton tlv has a lounge and they are very good with upgrades . The Ritz mostly sold out their suites as residence so they don't like upgrading higher then one category of go on free night but if go on points they usually upgrade well ( past 2 summers went for 5 nights and got a 1br suite) and recently sen people for a night on points  and they both got the duplex suite.
No they don't have a lounge or give free breakfast which is annoying but overall very enjoyable especially with kids as it's quieter then by tlv and it's near the kosher beach and the part before the kosher section is usually empty so good place to go with family and no pritzus

Please don't i was in Ritz past 2 summers (and plan on going again this summer) and was such a difference between 2 years ago and last year. 2 years ago was before Ritz was giving free nights and place was still newish ,very friendly and good with upgrades bc everyone went on points.
Last year especially bc  of 3 free nights place was a zoo. Staff was overworked and bothered all the time (given they just had a major turnover on staff right before summer and weren't ready for when everyone came).and the credit card gives gold status and everyone felt entitled to a suite and if they didn't get one which almost no one did (they got an upgraded room) only.people on points got suites. I even overheard a lady having a fight by check in that she only wanted a suite and demanded one since she was gold  and if not available now wanted to put on a waiting list. check-in person said calmly ma'am everyone here did what u did they got the credit card are here for 3 nights and are gold so nothing we can do and we don't hold rooms even if something opens up while you are here u have to keep asking in case a room opens up.  It was such a chillul hashem, though was convenient we had a 830 shachris and mincha maariv everyday i was there

By booked did u mean upgrade?
Simple by using points u show loyalty to the brand because how else would u have gotten them (they don't think cc) if not by staying at hotels. Free nights they don't feel like you did anything or spent money by Marriott to deserve anything. And most suites are residence they have to "pay" to use them so why give the room to someone who never spends money on the brand.
Waj  told.me the same thing they upgrade quicker to people who come on points then free nights.
I was told one of the rare times they upgraded a guy to the presidential suite was when a guy dropped over a million points on a 1br suite for a few days.

Just curious if anyone had thoughts about whether it was doable or not or a bad idea.  Didn't know also if the kosher restaurants near there put up sukkahs (I'm always shocked in the US how many restaurants don't even try to put up one).

Depends on how.many kids, the ages, and how big the room usually will give.one crib or cot free depending on room but usually they are ok with extra kids.

(and holder of award night, guest #1, isnt coming? - as he is technically the "3rd adult")
why bother? Leave your wife in the side, check in and then bring her to the room. Is it so important to have your wife check in with you?

they may catch on, especially if booked by male with another male checking in requesting a crib for baby, just asking if they "really" care

 I am in the exact same situation as you, same age kids, I booked one room and have been emailing back-and-forth with the concierge asking for an upgrade you to a special occasion etc. at some point I mentioned both kids and they said they would put us in a bigger room that would fit all four.

Meats are beit Yosef and not mehadrin and don't think the chicken is any better. if request in advance they usually have  meat from harav machpud which is a much better hechsher.

Debating whether I should get a card (Platinum or Ritz) over the next 6 months to have gold status and hope for an upgrade or to contact someone now to ask about paying for an upgrade. Any recommendations?
Also, can someone share the contact info for manager or concierge

In a nutshell, I was there twice and thought it sucked

After the first stay I sent them a detailed TR complete with pics ad I got a call from the GM who told me there was a staff meeting where my TR was discussed and what changes needed to be made, and offered me a free stay. On my free stay they gave me a two story suite but many of the issues were still there.

I didn't think it was right to post the TR since they gave me a complimentary stay.

In a nutshell, I was there twice and thought it sucked

After the first stay I sent them a detailed TR complete with pics ad I got a call from the GM who told me there was a staff meeting where my TR was discussed and what changes needed to be made, and offered me a free stay. On my free stay they gave me a two story suite but many of the issues were still there.

I didn't think it was right to post the TR since they gave me a complimentary stay.

I don't know why so many people love this hotel
Maybe write a TR of the 2nd trip?

i was told suite upgrades are almost impossible even with lots of availability
anyone ever get one?
Went last 3 summers 5 day 5 day 7 day stays all on points
Each year got an executive suite and they have gotten much better in quality since new GM took over
1st year I went was great 2nd year was a disaster and wrote to them about it they gave me back half the points I used for the booking told me they just had a staff turnover and  weren't equipped for the summer rush .and past summer was really really nice and they did an amazing job taking care of all my needs

I just spoke to the mashgiach of the Ritz Carlton. He said that for dairy everything is halab Yisrael and mehadrin. All lettuce pre checked etc. Very reliable. The meat meals aren't a good Kashrut but when you make a reservation you can tell them you want machpud meat which is an excellent Kashrut.

Sounds right. We ate breakfast there after speaking to the mashgiach and going over some fish and nuts that were not mehadrin (though whether lox needs to be mehadrin is probably another question).

We didn't eat dinner there, but Lechem Basar, Cafe Cafe, and Papagaio are all in the marina complex with mehadrin hechshers.

It might have been 25%. I was just referring to the question below (and he used the term 30), and thought maybe the breakfast is considered like the restaurant. Sorry if I blundered.

you are referring to a diff shul than the laguna building

The "house" minyan is for mincha and maariv (as the laguna doesn't have weekday mincha/maariv) and is a 5-8 min drive address is Wingate 90, Herzliya they davened mincha 15 min before shkiah and had a few min break before maariv

the laguna building is located on a street called yorde yam and has daily shachris 8am and shabos 815 I think

I wasn't there for Succos but was there for the Shabbos before Yom Kippur and they had a very small minyan at the hotel on Friday night and my husband walked to a shul down the street for Shabbos morning. They had a nice but small showing for the Friday night dinner. I imagine they must have a sukkah but I wouldn't count on much more than that from impression I got when I was there.

Free car service - this past summer I went to the front desk asking for the car service in the morning, they were a little confused & after a little back & forth they sent me down to the front entrance. Long story short they donít, but they have a service where they drive ppl from the hotel to the business area between 7-9am.

What's the story with parking? It says it's it's $15 a day parking, is there any parking nearby as free?

Checked in last night using DW free night certificate and asked for a suite upgrade and got a duplex suite with a marina view.
