Hashgacha

They are certified Kosher from the local Rabbanut. (Ein Bokek)
The meat is NOT Glatt.
The chicken is Rabbanut Mehadrin.
The cooking is Bishul Yisrael according to the Rema, not the Beit Yosef.
The vegetables are Gush Katif. The cabbage is NOT.

The Mashgiach says, the hard cheeses are not Mehadrin.

Breakfast:
- Breads, pastries, cakes - parbaked or raw frozen , Chasam Sofer Petach Tiqwa
- Packaged yogurts and puddings - some are B"datz . Rubin, but be careful some could be cholov nochri, check packaging
- Grapefruit and Orange Juice from Spout - PriMor ,Chasam Sofer Petach Tiqwa
- Hard Round Cheeses on cutting board- Cholov Nochri
- Gvina Levana, cottage cheese - .....................
- Feta, Bulgarian Cheeses - He claims Belz
- Some type of butter spread- some are cholov nochri
- Fish- He says B"datz ( he says B"datz about alot of things....), but its usually just herring and mackarel
- Tuna - He says B"datz, but there is usually some type of leafy veggie in there i.e. parsley
- Instant Coffee Machine - Cholov Yisroel of some rabbi in Ashkelon
- Espresso Station - Milk is usually Mehadrin Tnuva, you can look at the bag (Yes milk comes in a 5 gallon bag)
- Hot Stations- Not really sure, they serve dinner there also which is fleishig, I'm guessing they switch the stations, but i wouldn't....
- Produce - He says B"datz ( he says B"datz about alot of things....)
- Cereals- some are cholov nochri


Lounge:
Basically the same cakes and fruits as breakfast.

I dont know where you get this turning into Leonardo from, rather than just leaving Starwoods, but they do already belong to the chain of Fattal, which I think owns Leonardo, I doubt they will change their name to Leonardo, there's quite a few there already.

@YudiG, your getting me nervous about my reservations, apparantly in their t&c's they do state that in such a situation, they cannot guarantee a room.

Look, I did not say a word upon check in - :) But how can one argue with the posted link? It seems pretty clear cut, or am I wrong? I would hope you are right, but I wouldn't think Fatal would honor a reservation past 1/1/12

@YudiG, by the way points reservations dont include breakfast there. In the morning, outside the lunchroom next to the doors to go outside to the big swimming pool, there are kosher cookies and milk. (although, maybe just in the summer.)

Cookies and milk, nice! They do have a special rate for SPG members - that's their words - breakfast is 60 shekel instead of whatever they usually charge...i heard it's well worth it...i guess i'll find out...otherwise it's milk and cookies or a trip over to cafe cafe around the corner :)
