Finishing up a stay at the Sheraton Tel Aviv. Overall good hotel and I would come back, but things are not as good as they used to be

Rooms: Got upgraded to Marina Suite. Downgrade from when they would upgrade to Mediterranean suite just 3-4 years ago. However, all the suites aside from 2 total rooms, lost there ocean front view when the hotel renovated. There are rooms that still have ocean front (and they offered that to me) but I chose to have a suite with an Ocean View over an Ocean Front non-suite. The renovations are nice though.

Club Lounge: not as good as it used to be. Also renovated and nice, but the food spread was subpar. Dinner was not dinner. At best it was a first course or pre-dinner snack. Fish is offered only 2x a week. The rest of the selection was salads, pasta, and different potato dishes. A daily soup (not great) was also offered. Most of the dishes tasted well, but not having a fish daily like they used to or various cheese platters and dishes def made it lose its dinner status. The shrunk the variety from offering 10-12 dishes a night, to around 4-5. We did not go to breakfast at the lounge since we had breakfast at the main restaurant which was great, for sure a 10/10. The lounge breakfast was also skimmed out.
Its nice to have lounge access for the snack and drinks, but I def would not pay for it.

I would probably return due to the decent award redemption and location, or I would try the Ritz, but from what I understand from @Dan, the Ritz also took a hit.

On to the Waldorf Next

interesting article

https://www.timesofisrael.com/the-rise-and-rise-of-the-little-known-israeli-hotel-chain-about-to-go-supernova/

Very interesting

The Villa Brown is very nice  with a great location but rooms are a bit small.

Breakfast was Israeli style-breads some eggs and salads and cheeses.

Hotel was clean. In general we felt it could have been kept up better to be much nicer. It is primarily catering to Chariedi Israelis and that is the feel through the hotel.
Can you compare this to the prima palace? Rooms and food

I am unfamiliar with Prima Palace, but it is definitely much newer.

Any nice places in or near Tzfas?
Had the same question. I've been to the Ruth Rimonim before (great experience! I've heard since that the hechsher might be iffy) and am looking for an apartment this time for a larger group. There doesn't seem to be much on Airbnb.
I came across this website- any firsthand experience? Are they clean and well maintained?

I dont know about yt, but for shabbos the day meal is served in the Citadel. In general from what I understand there is some sort of partnership between Mamilla and Citadel, if not the same owners
