Paying guests get breakfast for free. If you are staying on points you need to be gold or diamond to get free breakfast. (source)

Complimentary (No longer, is now 60sh for self park - Drago)

Shuls Nearby:
Great Synagogue - Approx. 7 minute walk
Kotel around 15min walk thru the mall & arab Shuk (Only suggested when soldiers are present like friday night on the way home)
Hotel has a Shul in the basement
Shul across the street

whatever your rabbi says you can eat, someone else's rabbi says is treif

If anyone is planing on staying at Waldorf and not eating the free breakfast (Hechsher, Early flight, etc') please PM shimino1

If you get free drinks vouchers and don't use them, I'll buy it off you for 10 shek per voucher.
PM shimino1

If anyone is planing on staying at Waldorf and not eating the free breakfast please PM dragoddfer, and he may be able to pay for the breakfast.

Breakfast
+1

And an upgraded room, most likely not a suite.

I am a Diamond and I was not able to get a suite. I would recommend trying to get room 129 as it has a balcony with some sort of a view. and right next to the steps to go to the lobby.

I was there from Jan 30-Feb 3 as a Hilton Gold due to the Reserve Card.
Booked the reservation while it was still free parking.
Mentioned it to the Personal Concierge when I saw that they changed it to $15 a day.
They honored the free parking, but I had to validate my parking card each day so it got extended.

Got upgraded to Grand Deluxe I think that is what it was.  Balcony on 7th floor.  Free standing tub, TV in bathroom...nice room.
Got 2 free drink coupons, bottle of wine, water bottle.  Ask for access to the Gym if you want it.  They will give you a card to access their temporary gym, which has 2 ellipticals and 2 treadmills.  Free water bottles and cold and hot towels...free weights...and an AED in the closet :).

Had a great time.  Used 2 free weekend nights and 160000 points from the 2 cards when they had the 75000 bonus.
Breakfast was included and great. 

Only thing is that when you make reservations separately, they are not linked together, so although I kept the same room for the duration, I had to keep updating my room key, and parking pass. 
Also, tried ordering stuff from the Ipad in the room (extra toiletries...didnt work).
Went to the desk to ask for more bathroom products as they only put out 1 of each type for the room.
Not enough for 2 people.

Overall, I loved my stay there.
Now, do I close the regular hiltons cards...how long till you can reapply?
