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

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

No it does not IMO. I was happy to pay $20 bucks for the breakfast at the Ritz. That's a great price for their breakfast. Sat out viewing the marina, some amazing ice coffees, awesome spread of food, and during holiday season UN-BELIEVE-ABLE kids activities during breakfast. Read my mini-tr in the ritz thread.
Eh IMO wasn't worth 20

We're hoping to have Shabbat breakfast (brunch) for Shabbat Chol Hamoed, but we're not staying at the WA.  Will I be able to pre-pay? Anyone know if it's going to be 150NIS? Thanks.

What's the policy with checkout after shabbat? does one have to pay extra? request in advance?

Any help would be appreciated.

Now I see some, must have been a glitch.

Whats with  the few hundred dollars of taxes on paid stays? Is that vat? Or regular sales tax?

Generally works the opposite here, the closer you get the less is available

I'm looking to use some of my 100,000 bonus UR points to book a few night in the WA. Seems like a good deal with the 1.5 rate, at about 26,000 UR points per night. Is there a better way?

If I have gold status will I get the free breakfast if I book on the UR  site?

That is a good value. I believe if you can enter your Hilton Honors # you should get your Gold status. If you are Gold you get breakfast for free.T

If you have a chase sapphire reserve you can use your UR as cash towards any travel at a rate of 1.5 cents per point. So 26k equals a room that goes for $390

It could be worthwhile for Pesach also, where I need a few more nights. It'll be about 40k UR for a $600 a night room so I'm not sure if it's worth it.  I may need to ask elsewhere but any of you know if you'll receive HHonors points on a stay booked through UR because if yes and I got back another 60k HHonors for the three nights then I think it would be an ok redemption.
