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

Parking:
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

Hechsher: Plain Rabbanut Yerushayim (not mehadrin)
hechsherim in isreal
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.

Anyone want to make a bet? I'm sure Dan and PG will be willing to take the same

I'll bet against it. I think they need the WA flag to compete with the KD.

Perhaps if they have good sales people and convert the diplomats faster but it's hard to believe.

The Citadel is also on the market for sale/renovation and can have a comeback.

I'd take a 5 year bet for sure.

Bear in mind that it's the same Hilton people, and they learnt their lesson from Alrov. I'm sure they have a very strong contract for at least 5 years, probably 10.

Another thing is that Israel never had luxury brands before. Sure 'Hilton' and 'Sheraton' sound good because they're foreign, but a luxury brand is a completely different story and bring much more value.

Looks like it will go for 80,000 points per night with revenue rates starting at about $500. Free in room wifi though!

It's run by R' Borenstein- the head of rabanut mehadrin meat.
Officially will only have products from rabanut mehadrin or better (bedatz etc.) but would have to ask mashgiach for more details.
