I just booked two rooms for two nights in February, with 3,000 WR points and $65 per room per night.
Seems that the rooms are on the small side.
Buffet breakfast is included.
Location is hard to beat.
Revenue rate is $334/night, so pretty good value, I think.

Best option is their credit card by Barclay. There are two versions a free one that gives 15,000 points and the one that a has a yearly fee of $75 but offers you a 30,000 points.

Called them for a stay in January. They offer standard rooms for 15,000 points (Go Free)  or 3,000 points + $65 (Go Fast). You can buy up to 5,000 points a year and gift another 5,000 points. (http://www.jdoqocy.com/click-2164838-11836336) Dont know if you can use multiple accounts to gift to one account. Rate is 1.1cpp So standard room for those dates were $98.

Premier Deluxe Room was offered at $120 mid-week and $165 for Friday-Sunday. Not bad at all. Leonardo Plaza across street wanted $250 a night for same nights.

I believe its the same rate for every day 3k+$65

My understanding is that the only difference is the cash portion which can be anywhere from $25-$75 at different properties. This one is $65. I was quoted the same rate for the more expensive dates as well.

Still not clear if you can purchase 5,000 + receive 5,000 or that it can't be more than 5,000 altogether?

You can buy 5k a year and you can be gifted 5k a year

9k gets you 3 nights for $99 +195

roughly $98 a night

for longer stays you would have to have 2 reservations or open the CC for 30k

Surprised there isnt more talk of the 3k wyndham move, i used it in the israeli 4 star level (there is obv a difference) Ramada Netanya, which has a kosher enough for me Lechem ubasar and cafe greg like 2 minutes away by the island hotel. The ramada netanya was 3k +55 per night for $300 suites with living rooms, plus a decent pool and water views.

The only question is whether they have an audit team that watches for these things as SPG does.

But as the spoons are increasingly being handed out it's starting to occur to some people that these aren't really spoons.

We recently got back from a 5 night stay with kids in 2 rooms. Rooms are tiny even for European standards. They gave us superior rooms and if there is a lower category than that I probably would not fit in! The wall between the room and bathroom is all glass with the bottom 2/3rds being darkened. There is no lock on the glass door. If you leave the bathroom light on for shabbos it will be way to light in the room so we put the night table lamp in the bathroom and kept the light off. Rain Shower is amazing with a lot of pressure.  They have a really nice rooftop sitting area (not a bar). Breakfast was OK but Iíve had better in Israel.  Hashgacha is Rabbinut (not mehadrin) but there is a mashgiach who put a sign and warned us that a few cakes were not chalav yisroel. They have coffee, tea &  juice available all day in a room off reception area. Location cannot be better!!! Parking is 50 shekel per day.

All in all itís a very good value in the best location if using the "Go Fast" option but itís definitely not for you if you are looking for a luxury hotel experience like the WAJ, Citidel or even the Plaza!!

Hope this is the right place for a review of our 1 night stay at the hotel, didn't feel that it qualified as a TR just a quick getaway.

DW and I decided to take a short vacation for a day and we thought the central location of the hotel would be perfect. Booked 3k+$65 the executive room. We arrived at 4:45pm (check in from 3pm) we noticed the majority of the guests were Israeli not too many tourist maybe because of the time of the year. Check in took a few minutes as there was a line, when it was our turn I asked if I could get an upgrade to the Bat Sheva Suite, I explained that I wrote an email but did not receive a response. The receptionist seemed very nice and spent about 3 minutes clicking away, eventually she said there is one room which is not occupied but for some reason not open for occupancy, she said we could come later and possibly switch given the short nature of our stay we decided to skip that option. about 5pm we go to the room it was clean elegant and had a complimentary bottle of water + some choclates, it was definitely on the small side despite being the biggest room except the suite (according to website 20sqm). There was some issue with bolting the door so we called the desk to fix it, took quite a while for them to come.
The room was on a high floor (8/9) and we had a terrific view from the window (no balcony). As mentioned by @BrooklynCPA the bathroom does not allow for much privacy and the lighting situation is not good for shabbos, the shower was terrific with amazing pressure plus the amenities were very good dead sea products. One thing which we did is to go onto the roof to see the 'historic Jerusalem' view which truly is amazing better than anything I have seen at other hotels, you can see the old city and other directions a real panoramic view of the city, truthfully I would recommend simply going there even if you are not a guest, take the elevator to the 9th floor and you have a fantastic view. The TV is the ususall Israeli garbage with limited options, would recommend bringing your own stuff if you want to watch, you can always connect with an HDMI cable.
In the morning we went to breakfast, the first thing I did was ask to speak to mashgiach, the Arab waiter said he will check, I said is he around and he replied that he was supposed to be but he has a tendency of 'disappearing' (not a good sign IMO), he wasn't there. I spoke with the chef and clarified where the products were from (he was Jewish but did not seem frum). In terms of whether you should eat there ask your LOR I just present to you my experience.
The food was terrific with a great selection of cheeses and cooked items (haloumi skewers)no complaints here, a nice selection of breads etc.
An anecdote - at breakfast if you look at the wall outside there is a beautiful but rather risque quote from sefer shmuel the story of Bat Sheva I guess they took the name seriously...also alluding to the hotels view (in that Dovid Hamelech saw Bat Sheva bathing from his view), make what you want of that...
I am posting a link to my pictures so you can get a sense of what it looks like as well as some of the views (I was not successful in inserting the pictures into the review)

Was looking to book a points room for Shabbos HaGadol, but not seeing availability. So then I started checking a bunch of dates, and could not find a single date that had a free night award, searching various random dates in the next year.

Has anyone else experienced this? Is there better availability if I call to book? Any suggestions? I'd go for cash and points or straight points.

I would say call or email them.
I called Wyndham Rewards to book.
Online showed no availability on the TRYP website. But on the WR website, it said ďcallĒ, so I called and booked.

Not anymore!
In a very Wyndham-typical move, they completely devalued the Go Fast (C&P) program without notice a few days ago.

It's now tied to the paid rate for the given night and basically offers something like a 35% discount on the paid rate in exchange for 3K points.

Plus, not all hotels even offer the Go Fast rate at all. For instance the Ramada Netanya has not Go Fast availability for the next few months at least.

They definitely killed it.

Used this extensively

the wyndham card gives 45k points at times, thats 15 room nights at 3k plus $65 each

at netanya ramada got 4 people in suite room which is normally $400 or more during high season

includes breakfast (if you eat the hashgacha) which is awesome and rivals the waldorf

was never sure why on ddf people didnt like the ramada much, i think it's a very decent hotel

fun while it lasted

Thanks, just bought two!  Also, above everyone is whining (I know it was a year ago...lol) about them changing the points + cash deal but now that the Tryp  is only 7500 points a night and only $87.50 a night TOTAL that's WAY better! Enjoy the NEW smokin' deal now since the other one is gone!

When the Wyndham offers a 45k bonus @shmooz mentioned below, I'll plan to get that card too... six nights right next to Rechavia sounds great to me!  If anyone sees that deal come up, please post in this thread.

Thanks @Dan for contributing to another amazing vacation for my family!

Yes, we stayed there for the last days of Succos last year. They have a sukkah where they serve breakfast every morning but they don't offer any other meals.

And the reason they don't show availability when adding and 3rd person is because the rooms are incredibly small and cant accommodate a 3rd person so you should call the hotel to inquire about the infant.

I get that I have stayed there multiple times, I just feel like (maybe unjustifiably), if the infant is not taking up any significant amount of space (sleeps with parents, or in small space) and does not eat, why then is it the hotels concern if they are present?

That's why I suggested that you just call the hotel. I can't imagine it will be an issue.

It probably isn't and they most likely won't care.  If the infant is going to sleep with you then I can't see them having an issue its just that the hotel may really want people to know that there really isn't any room for any other bedding (even a crib).

Because rooms are teency tiny (200 sqft) and it's not a full service hotel, no pool,  restaurants, Shabbos meals, etc. They just serve breakfast (like a Hampton Inn does)...lol.  That's why it's so few points as well.   I think people DO book here like crazy on points but it's not an aspirational redemption.  It's got a great location and seems to do the job perfectly for people who come often, visiting family, etc. but not for the trip of a lifetime or people living in Israel that want a beautiful Shabbos or Yom Tov experience with meals.

As a data point: We fit a pack and play and two of my older kids (3,4) slept on blankets on the floor. So we fit 5 in one room. Cant say we fit comfortably because the mattresses were horrible and there is a flashing red light on the ceiling, but the size was manageable.
Dp - Had one room with a packnplay was fine, they didnt seem to mind me bringing it in. Second room used inflateable mattress for kid (5) was also fine.

I just did a Wyndham timeshare presentation today (Sunday) in NYC and they give 30k points for it. As annoying as the timeshare sales lady was, all I had to do was sit and listen for 2 hours, and I got the points. I booked my 2 nights already. Psyched!

After seeing all the confusion online, I decided to double check my booking. Apparently the idiot rep on the phone booked me for a Ramada hotel, not the TRYP hotel.

I called back to complain, and they say that "they dont have any availability at the TRYP at this time". This stinks  :'(

I'm going to Israel in late June, so I have time and will keep checking with them to see if anything opens up.

Also, I've been asked by a member for info on how to book the timeshare presentation: I'm not sure if this is against DDF rules so feel free to take down my post if it is in violation. The guy's name was Abe (Pretty sure he's Jewish). Phone # 917-648-9435

Anyone have any update on this hotel - I'm supposed to be staying here in a month on points, but the fact that there's no availability, no breakfast (booked a long time ago when they were providing breakfast on points), and no one answers at their email address (have tried a couple times) makes me uncomfortable staying here. How are they filling up the hotel with no availability on Wyndham's website?

There's tons of availability on their own (tryp jerusalem's) site and all third party websites. Apparently they are just not bookable on Wyndham for some reason.

Breakfast isn't standard in other hotels in the chain.
Netanya recently pulled them, Hadera still gives them.

Same - are there some decent breakfast places within a couple minute walk of the hotel that aren't too expensive?

Here is the response i received from them on FB:

"Breakfast is included in the price that we offer on the website, but since you are redeeming your points, in this case the breakfast is not included, and you will get your room without any meals."

I also booked while it was still included, but doesn't seem like they care. Debating if I should switch hotels, the value is just so good on points, but might be worth switching to a bigger, nicer hotel that comes with breakfast.

Wyndham's website is showing ZERO availability for this hotel. When you go on the Tryp Jerusalem website for the hotel itself, it shows available (as does all third party booking sites). Did they stop allowing you to book through Wyndham? And most importantly, award stays?
I recently tried booking with price line and I called them and they told me that there is no availability period. When I called the hotel itself they confirmed there are rooms available. So somethings not right in the system.

BTW while its a nice hotel, and have friendly service with tea, coffee and a complimentary breakfast, the lobby and standard rooms are teeny, I barely got my stroller through the door. Also, the bathroom is literally right next to the bed with glass door, a little blacked out on the bottom portion of it, so It can get really awkward etc. The towels they provide match the room size. The rain shower is cool though. I dont think i would go back.

Thanks! Availability actually just opened up today on points so I want to book just in case as a backup. Do you know if they allow a one night stay for shabbos and checkout after shabbos or require that you stay motzai shabbos as well?

So instead maybe ask them what is the fee for a late checkout on Saturday? It might be reasonable and not be the charge of another full night.

Also next Sukkot has points availability.  Wyndham is also have this "Stay 2 Nights or More and Save Up to 25%" sale through the end of February.  I just went on the site to hopefully book some points nights during Hannukah but I ended up just paying and saving my points because it was $111 per night for Dec. 24-26.  Hopefully, since it's it's a paid stay, I'll get breakfast included during this stay.  :P

Mine just showed up when I searched for 2 nights and it worked just now again when I searched again on their regular website (now that promo price for Dec. 24-26 is $119 but still a smokin' deal).  When I googled the promotion, it gave me this site, which does explain all the terms of the promotion, so you can use this:

https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/en-uk/hotel-deals/winter-savings (https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/en-uk/hotel-deals/winter-savings)

Here are some details (bolding is mine):
1. The Wyndham Hotels & Resorts Winter Promotion 2019/2020 (the ďPromotionĒ) is a discount of up to 25% off the Best Available Rate per room per night at participating Wyndham Hotels & Resorts hotels in Europe, the Middle East, Eurasia and Africa. The Promotion is applicable for bookings made between 15 October 2019 and 29 February 2020 on stays between 01 November 2019 and 06 March 2020 at participating Wyndham Hotels & Resorts hotels.

2. To qualify for the discount of up to 25% off the Best Available Rate per room, bookings must be for a minimum stay of 2 consecutive nights. There is no maximum length of stay.

Although itís a huge bummer, I also just checked and yup they are all showing 15k, so thanks for posting. I also just made some bookings at 7.5k just over a week ago so they must have just devalued it.

The general manager emailed me that the hotel will be closed during the duration of my scheduled stay. I responded stating I would like them to reschedule my stay as it's not my fault they're closed and their points went up so I cannot cancel and rebook. She responded that the hotel cannot do anything and I should contact Wyndham directly.
